Happy Trade Deadline Day, folks
12:00
T-minus four hours until the non-waiver deadline ...

Think the Tigers are done, or do you see another piece (Kinsler, Iglesias, etc.) moving today?
Travis Sawchik
12:02
Tigers seem committed to moving pieces so I could see another trade or two ... not sure what the market is like for Kinsler. .... They need to do better than the J.D. Martinez return

Would Yankees push for Darvish if Gray fell through?
Travis Sawchik
12:03
Darvish is a shorter-term option, of course, but it seems logical that they would target him if Gray fell through
12:04
Division race could be tight so Darvish could have a chance to make a real impact

What does a Hand to Astros package look like?
Travis Sawchik
12:04
12:05
I believe he has 2.5 years of control remaining so it should be significant
He's Andrew Miller Lite
Dave Cameron

You think we could get Rosenthal and cash from Fox for Cistulli and a lower level writer?
Travis Sawchik
12:06
Cistulli signed a club-friendly deal with no opt out so it's unlikely

Lucroy to Coors.  Big upside offensively and bigger liability defensively?
Travis Sawchik
12:07
I don't like this move for the Rockies and for several reasons ....
Lucroy is not hitting
12:08
And he's become a poor framer at the bottom of the zone, where he used to be elite
And guess what club throws more off-speed pitches in the lower part of the zone than any other club? The Rockies. http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/have-the-rockies-found-answers-at-altit...

Do you think Kintzler ends up somewhere else by the end of the day?
Travis Sawchik
12:09
In

Who you think pirates trade today.
Travis Sawchik
12:11
I liked the Pirates as soft sellers a month ago and i still do today. Nicasio, Freese, Watson are the piece I'd move. Keep Cole and McCutchen unless overwhelmed

For Yankee fans emotionally preparing for a Gray deal: If it's Florial/Acevado/two lottery tickets for Gray/Alonso, how should we feel?
Travis Sawchik
12:13
I think the Yankees should be aggressive at the deadline
12:14
I love Alonso in that ballpark and Gray has control beyond this year, of course . That's a deal that could win you a division. So I'd be OK with it

Could the Indians and Royals win streaks come at any better time for the Twins front office? This has to give them coverage to sell off some pieces. Think they make any moves?
Travis Sawchik
12:15
I think Kintzler goes. Yeah, it's nice cover for a team that does not have realistic aspirations of playing meaningful Oct baseball

12:16
Is what the Orioles should do different from what the Orioles will do?
Travis Sawchik
12:16
Given their playoff odds of 3.8% http://www.fangraphs.com/coolstandings.aspx they ought to move everything they can
12:17
Orioles are in a tough spot. But I think the sooner they commit to a full rebuild the better off they will be
David Forst
12:17
I happen to think the Yankees are being meanies with Gray. What should I ask for?
Travis Sawchik
12:18
You should be pretty greedy ... and you don't have to move Gray at this deadline

New rumors have Dodgers eyeing a Darvish/Claudio package. I think Verdugo is a fair centerpiece and Buehler is the Dodgers' lone untouchable at this deadline, but a lot of fans and some writers are balking at trading Verdugo. Do you think he's the necessary piece to get a deal done with Texas?
Travis Sawchik
12:19
That's too steep for me. And Darvish is almost something of a luxury item

Are the cubs now on par with astros and Dodgers? Their underperforming hitting bounced back the last two months and their bullpen is great now. And with the quintana  addition the rotation now stacks up really well too. The shift
Travis Sawchik
12:20
The Cubs were never as poor as they played in the first half, many expected this bounce back, but they are still a cut or two below the Dodgers and Astros
David B
12:21
Is Zach Britton someone who could clear waivers in August?
Travis Sawchik
12:21
I don't think so
