They’ll have a couple rotation holes to fill, but it’s not as if they have to worry about the window slamming on their fingers.
Starting pitching! Just like this season. The lineup is still powerful, even if they aren’t getting the same production from key sources like Manny Machado, Chris Davis, and Mark Trumbo. They can still out-dinger most teams in this world.
Similar to Granderson and Bruce, Davis could be well-suited for a team that has Cheap Ice Hockey Jerseys to unexpectedly deal with an injury to its outfield in the next few Cheap Ireland Jerseys weeks. He’s not a top-tier pickup, but his offense picked up in July when he hit .317/.388/.467 compared to his season line of .237/.297/.355.
He’s also stolen 19 bases to this point, tied for 10th in the league this season, which would be a help to teams as well. Davis is also due less than $3 million for the rest of this season.
Which is how we get things like teams putting half a dozen players on waivers at once just to see what happens or throwing the entire team on there just to mess with the league and obscure their true purpose. Which is the fun part!
So there’s a good chance that a few trades will go down before Sept. 1, even if they don’t involve the most famous players in the league or high-profile swaps. That said, here are a few post-deadline trades that could maybe, possibly happen.
Houston won 14 of their last 20 games and have a lineup that can carry them through any stretch of the season. They came right out of the gate by putting up ten runs against the contending Twins.
My point with all this? Well, I guess it’s that of the three obvious contenders, one of them was far worse than anyone predicted, one of them is almost exactly where they were supposed to be, and one of them is threatening to be one of baseball’s all-time great teams.
