So the Reds and the Mets made the biggest moves at the deadline.

The sellers overplayed their hand this year.

We're screwed if we have one injury in the rotation.
Which is likely the case with a significant injury anyway, chief.

God, you guys can be miserable.

Yankees didn't get a starter. Dodgers didn't get Vasquez or any reliever. Today was a win.


100% agree

Today was a fail for MLB imo.

Hopefully, we got a few prospects to pump back into the system. Stassi -- like White and JD Davis -- is a AAAA player.

What was even the biggest deadline deal? This deadline was a dud league-wide.

So the Mets didn't trade their biggest expiring contract asset AND they didn't upgrade their team weaknesses. Bold strategy.

One of those things where I kind of really hope the Giants and Mets are completely out of things over the next two weeks and are kind of shooting themselves for not adding to their future.

Putting a lot of trust into Miley. Hopefully he doesn't get too amped in the playoffs.

The ignore feature in full force today. People talking crazy about Tucker and other people thinking we have unlimited money.

yep, that's why it's going to move into mid or late August next year

Biagini to replace McHugh in the bullpen and McHugh back to the SP rotation. There's the middle-of-the-rotation SP we were looking for.

Stroman and Bauer for sure.

So fking weird.

Also, don't be surprised if Biagini is quite good once he adjusts. Elite curveball, above average change-up, and he throws his sinker a lot which gets pounded. We're notorious for getting people to stop throwing a sinker.

Teach him to throw an effective 4-seamer, add some analytics, and he could end up being very good over the next few years.

The same could be said for the Giants. And this year showed the value teams placed on the QO draft compensation.

Exactly...and didn't give up the farm for Wheeler. Teams were banking on desperate moves from the top teams...didn't happen.

I'm really hoping our lineup starts to put up some big numbers, which will help provide rest to our arms and get them ready for the postseason.

Except McHugh couldn't hack it as middle rotation starter

I don't see it as putting it as putting a lot of trust into Miley. I see it as selling teams were stupid and wanted completely too much.

Poor Stroman. It has to suck to be traded to a team that's so delusional.

He also may have been hurt for the last few starts.

Since he came back from IL, that slider has looked really good. I don't like having to rely on him as a starter for remainder of season, but it looks like that will be our fate.

Do you blame them? I would second guess any trade made with Luhnow.

I'm good with this - we have as good of a shot as anyone (if not better) at the World Series.

The Stroman for 2 low lottery tickets trade is still a head-scratcher and I think the Blue Jays deserve a lot of criticism for it.

I think it depends on what the league wants. Do they want trade deadline hype or more parity/less tanking?

I will tell you who lost big time today: our buddies up I-45. They had tradable pieces in Pence, Minor and Lynn and got nada. Purgatory is a cast iron ***** of a place to live and they are stuck there.
