Natinals apparently were in the market for a whole new bullpen.

Seattle is an odd place to look for an improvement

Marlins trade SP Zac Gallen to Arizona.  Did not see that one coming.

 

ETA:  For SS prospect Jazz Chisholm.

So who goes?  Blazek, Sipp, and Guerra?   Grace stays?

That sounds about right.  One of Sipp or Grace, but I'm not sure which way they would go.

In other news, Nats just scored 2 in the bottom of the 9th to send it to extra innings against the Braves.

Watching the last hour and having a severe line of storms roll through right now.  It's like someone got chocolate in my peanut butter.

Also Josh Donaldson gives the Braves the lead in the 10th!

Any idea what the Bucs got in the trade?   I assume a minor league prospect or two...

Either cash or international trade funds.

Knowing the Pirate's ownership it is cash that he (Bob Nutting) can stuff in his pockets.

International bonus allotments and a player to be named later.  

I always like the player to be named later.  Not sure why I find that so amusing.

Less than 40 minutes remaining and it sounds like the Mets are content on keeping both Wheeler and Noah.  That seems strange to me.  Of course, so does SF keeping MadBum.

Yankees officially out of Wheeler running.  Although, I doubt they were ever truly in.  I can't see the Mets trading to the Yankees to help them win a WS.

Jesus Aguilar going to St. Pete to change Capella's attitude.

The Brewers get Jake Faria in return.

Faria sucks! Aguilar was good once! I’m excited.

Wheeler adds nothing to the yanks - avg pitcher at best.   Give you a bag of balls for him.

Per Jeff Passan, Wheeler sweepstakes down to the Astros and Rays.

PTBNL is an amazing player that he's been in so many deals over the years.

Was hoping Mike Leake got moved to Brewers.  He has good numbers and Mariners were willing to eat a big chunk of his salary.

Braves grab Melancon too. No word on return. 

I assume the Giants will be paying the lion's share of Melancon $14M 2020 salary. 

Sorry things didn't work out here but I'm glad he's gone.  The big sunk cost forced him into a higher leverage role than the results justified.

Mark Melancon to Braves per Buster Olney

Mike Leake in that ballpark would be pure magic to watch.

David Robinson to go season ending surgery.  Great pick up by the Phils.

No jab at him.  I was making fun of how they reported the significant trade coming out of SF when everyone was waiting to hear about MadBum or Smith.  And it turned out to be this small trade.

5 minutes.  Of course, there can still be reports of signings for about 10 to 15 minutes after the deadline.  But usually if it's big, we'd at least get an idea something might be in the wings.

I'll go ahead and say it now:  If the Astros don't get someone before the deadline, they will have made a huge mistake.  And there is no second chance like two years ago when Verlander saved us.

It was significant if you've been watching Joe Panik flail away all season.

Not trying to diminish that trade.  But when everyone in baseball was waiting to hear what the Giants would do with MadBum and Smith, it was ridiculous for a sportswriter to tweet that a trade between the Brewers and Giants was in the works and it was SIGNIFICANT. :lol:
