If he's traded Do you think puig be moved to a contender with his locker room issues
august fagerstrom
2:29
There hasn't been one of those in a couple years, right? Everything I've heard lately is that he's become a good teammate.
Bob

How did Reddick's value change?
august fagerstrom
2:30
Not sure when this is relative to, but he got hurt again and seems to have lost the brunt of his defensive value over the last couple years
Scott
2:30
Bickford and Susac for Will Smith? Seems like a huge overpay.
august fagerstrom
2:30
Bickford for Smith, wow
and Susac
M.O.
2:31
Wasn't the Louisiana Purchase actually really cheap
august fagerstrom

FLEECED EM
Eric A Longenhagen
2:31
Bickford has been 89-92 with a 50 slider and plus command. Barely threw a changeup as an amateur so that pitch is behind. Not sure why so many are in love with him.
Joe, Esq.

If the Indians get Pearce, do you think that Uribe becomes a roster casualty? Or will he get a visit from good ol' General Cramping?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:31
Plus, there might be some medical stuff going on there, Toronto didn't sign him back in 2013 for a reason.
august fagerstrom
2:32
Uribe and Almonte are the guys on the bubble for sure
Which one would go depends how much Indians believe in Pearce's ability to play multiple positions
Chris
2:32
Lots of Dodgers Rays chatter in the last week or so...with Reddick now in LA, think a Puig and a prospect (Austin Barnes comes to mind for me) could get Archer??
august fagerstrom
2:32
Morosi literally just tweeted as you asked this that Dodgers/Rays still talking pitching, so
Erik
2:33
How important is time at the deadline? If a team has just made one trade, does that make them less likely to make another, simply because their phones have been busy the past few hours?
august fagerstrom
2:33
Lotta people working on these things. It's not like they can't be working two or more trades at once
2:36
Dodgers reportedly also targeting Forsythe from TB in addition to pitching
Something tells me LAD is gonna pull off at least one more blockbuster before this day is over
J.D.
2:36
Doesn't Susac suggest a Lucroy to Texas trade since they weren't offering a catcher back?
august fagerstrom
2:36
What Olney seems to inferring, not that it should be a huge shock
Patrick breecher
2:36
What kind of haul would puig fetch doesn't sound like there to interested in him anymore anyone else think he could benefit from a fresh start on a new team
august fagerstrom
2:37
Lots of people are asking about Puig's trade value, and my answer is I literally have no idea. At all.
I would guess it varies wildly from team to team. Moreso than almost anyone, I'd guess
Rosenthal: "#Astros working on deals big and small. Number of possibilities in play."
Frontrunner for most non-revelatory rumor of the year?
Elton
2:39
Which team is least active? I feel like I hear nothing about the Rockies and Angels.
august fagerstrom
2:39
just wait until the Angels trade trout at 3:59
I just do not understand the Beltran-Indians rumors at all
Peter
2:40
how did you get the name August?
august fagerstrom
Drew
2:41
"Experts" dont believe Teheran is worth top prospects Moncada or benditendi, why not? what is the knock on Teheran?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:42
Saying Teheran is not worth one of baseball's top prospects does not imply that Teheran sucks. But I'm not trading potential stars for a league average starter.
Erik
2:43
How does a PTBNL work?
sn4k3rjaker
2:43
I'm at work, and unfortunately can't do much more than half-watch this chat. Are there any rumblings of the Twins doing anything more? I'd like to see them sell everything that's over 24 and not bolted down...
august fagerstrom
2:43
Santana to the Blue Jays has been rumored
Blue Jays seem real likely to add a starter, whether Santana or Hellickson or otherwise
Eric A Longenhagen
2:43
Re PTBNL: A few different ways. My favorite is when teams agree on a list of guys eligible to be "Named Later" and then the acquiring team scouts those guys really hard for a few months while deciding which one they like best.
august fagerstrom
2:44
man, this Jay Bruce deal really sounds like it has the potential to fall through. would be kind of amazing
