So what do you guys end up thinking about a one time trade deadline at July 31 if no big names or big teams end up improving themselves with impact players?
How much we blew it and will be lucky to make the WC now.


That's your takeaway? Arguably the best team in the AL, maybe baseball, and the Astros will be "lucky" to prove as much... ok.
Surely that was sarcasm?

Or just an awful take. Hard to tell.

I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

GMs think it's too early, many don't want to throw in the towel just yet. Next year they are likely to move it to Aug. 15.

If your main competition doesn't get better either, then it really doesn't matter.

Greene and Melancon? Braves are working hard to bolster their bullpen.


Outside of the Dodgers the NL is wide open.
This is why the trade deadline date becomes important.

If the league wants more parity, they will keep a July 31 deadline. Many more teams will feel they are still in it and not be willing to sell. I think this also keeps more teams from tanking.

If they have an Aug 31 deadline, I bet bigger blockbuster trades happen.

I ultimately just have wondered what having one trade deadline so early in the season means for the future. Will we see MLB go the way of the NFL where there will be less in season trades and more FA signings?

It will be interesting to track.

I think we're good either way, but if we can get an arm that could potentially be re-signed in the offseason for 1-2 non-top 10 organizational prospects, then I'm in.

If teams like the Mets are being unrealistic about value (similar to Keuchel and Kimbrel in free agency), then unfortunately cannot do much about it.

This. I think us and LA are the two teams that have the least amount of holes.

If everybody stays the same I really like our chances moving forward.

Because the Mets are ****ing morons. Wheeler will walk out the door and they will have squat to show for it.

We just now have our super lineup...lets see after a few weeks how it looks. I could see us going on another nice winning streak (besides a few late inning meltdowns we should already be on a nice winning streak right now).

I'm not in the front office, but I wouldn't assume anything.

Luhnow doesn't go after sexy names, they target players with specific skill sets

Don't disagree that the mets are morons. I can't follow their logic whatsoever. There is none. Used to root for them as the stepchild of NY but...maybe they deserve to be "the Mets"
