We'll try to cycle some folks in here even when trades start happening, but given that there are about ~20 deals that need to happen and ~3 hours left before the deadline, we might end up in all out chaos mode again.
This everything-happens-at-once plan really is the worst.

Percentage chance Hand gets dealt today?
Dave Cameron
1:05
I'll go 30%. There are a lot of RPs out there and this is a buyer's market, so not totally crazy for SD to hold him until the winter.

What two teams do you think are going to make a deal today with each other because they have nothing interesting to move? Angels/Phillies?
Dave Cameron
1:06
I actually think a David Hernandez/Yusmeiro Petit combo could be kind of interesting for a contender looking for depth.

What are your odds on the Pirates moving a) Cutch, b) Cole, c) Harrison?
Dave Cameron
1:06
I'd bet heavily against any of them going anywhere. Deals like that don't come together at the last minute, and there have been zero rumors of PIT marketing any of those guys.

Feels like a surprise team situation with sonny gray. Have a hard time believing Yanks are only team willing to part with high-level prospects for a good SP with team control
Dave Cameron
1:07
I think early asking price scared away teams like the Astros and Cubs. Not much left in way of buyers now.
This market just sucks for sellers in general.

If the Yankees are balking at Florial/Mateo alone, there's no way that Yankees/Gray deal actually goes through, right? I can't believe that ATL or the Dodgers couldn't beat that.
Dave Cameron
1:08
The idea that Gray would go for just one of those two and some filler does seem unbelievable.
But Braves still shouldn't be buying and not sure LAD actually needs an SP.
James K

Guessing Jim Johnson will not find a new home?
Dave Cameron
1:09
The last two teams to trade for Jim Johnson hoping to get a bullpen upgrade were sorely disappointed. I don't know that anyone wants to go back to that well.

Ken Rosenthal is amazing. Dude doesn't even have a job and he's connected enough to break trades on his own facebook page
Dave Cameron
1:10
He has two jobs. Fox still pays him to do TV work, and he works for MLB Network. Fox just stupidly decided they didn't want to publish his written work anymore.
Bo
1:10
Seemingly slow deadline day thus far... Do you expect a trade to kick off domino effect or just a slow day?
Dave Cameron
1:11
Thought Justin Wilson moving would break things open a bit, but still slogging towards the deadline. Still think we see 10+ trades today. Too many RPs out there to not get moved.
Cheek
1:11
Why does a reliever like Melancon or Reed get such a significantly lesser return than Chapman?
Dave Cameron
1:11
The Chapman deal was an outlier.
Anyone using that as a baseline for the market is misreading player valuation.
EbenezerBatflip
1:12
What do you think of the Dombrowski trade for Reed this year compared to the Ziegler trade last year? Both seem like surprise bargains.
Dave Cameron
1:12
Like Neshek, Reed is a solid arm who didn't cost much. I like that pickup for BOS, and both are signs of how cheap rentals are right now.
Nick
1:12
Wouldnt a Darvish for Mejia deal be absolutely crazy for a 3 month rental?
Dave Cameron
1:12
The only response to that tweet should have been "check your sources, Ralph"
Matt
1:13
Considering the Cubs' remaining long-term SP needs, would it make ANY sense for them to swoop in on Gray talks? It's been well established that Happ would be part of that cost.
Dave Cameron
1:13
Who you throwing out of the playoff rotation?
At some point, just adding SPs isn't all that helpful.
Andy
1:14
Do you think that the high prices for relievers has prompted everybody to list bullpen arms are for sale... thus increasing the supply and reducing the cost for relievers in that 2nd tier?
Dave Cameron
1:14
I don't think we've actually seen a high price for relievers. The Brad Hand asking prices have apparently been crazy, but everyone else has moved pretty cheaply.
Andrew
1:14
Any thoughts on whether or not the Jays will make any noise today? Shapiro and Atkins don't seem to be rushing to make any deadline deals, perhaps waiting for the offseason
Dave Cameron
1:14
I bet Joe Smith goes.
Don
1:15
Is there a realistic package out there right now that would have been a better return for Chris Sale than what the White Sox got in the offseason?
Dave Cameron
1:15
Nope.
Hakuna Quintana
1:15
Is it wrong to support the Indians to give up McKenzie and Mejia if that's what it takes to get Britton & Gray?
Dave Cameron
1:16
It's never really wrong to support your team.
That said, I don't think I'd give up that pair.

do you think samardzija gets delt? his name seemed to be floating around for a while but not so much anymore
