No, you can't trade just drafted guys until after World Series.

Bruce deal being reworked: problem with medicals per Rosenthal
Dave Cameron
2:16
Medicals on one of the throw-ins.
Shouldn't be a huge problem.
Pete
2:17
How many teams would pay $62M for Moncada if they could have a do-over?
Dave Cameron
2:17
All of the ones with the cashflow available.
He's clearly worth more than that now.
Mike T.
2:17
Couldn't you just name a PTBNL and trade a just drafted player? Announce it after the WS.
Dave Cameron
2:18
No, they closed that loophole.
Elton

Herrera+D'Arnaud for Lucroy is the rumor. The Mets need to add how much more to that?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:19
If we're evaluating it compared to the package they would have gotten from CLE, probably one more piece.
Unless MIL values proximity to the Majors over quantity.
Ben
2:20
Eric, do you think Grant Holmes has the ceiling of a #3 starter?
Dave Cameron
2:20
Okay, I'm taking a bit of a chat break. August Fagerstrom is going to come hang out and co-chat with Eric.

Hello!
2:21
is Bork here?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:21
Ceiling, yes. I have a 50 FV on him now. Generally view the stuff as that of a #3/4, non-zero chance the changeup and/or curveball outpace my projection, but also think he hasn't thrown strikes for two years and that concerns about his control are valid.
Bogey
2:21
What's up with Alex Bregman? When does he start hitting?
Elton
2:22
August: Do you think the Indians will make any more moves? Should they?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:22
Major League Baseball is really hard and that kid is learning new defensive positions on the fly. It'll be fine, long term. Not great for him to be struggling in a playoff race, though. Hope HOU is patient and doesn't do anything that mires his long term devo.
august fagerstrom
2:22
Yeah, I think they add some sort of utility/bench-type bat. Steve Pearce almost makes too much sense to not happen
Scott
2:22
More prolonged metaphors, Fagerstrom. MORE. Waiting for an entire article that's just a prolonged one. Sorry you wasted that cooking one.
august fagerstrom
2:22
Not wasted! Ended up leaving it in anyway, as I realized it still worked after the fact
2:23
Will Smith to the Giants, per Passan!
Let's check and see if that velo's come up at all since the last time I looked
2:24
91 in his last outing! Not graet
or great
Steve
2:24
Does CLE make a move for another catcher after lucroy deal fell through?
august fagerstrom
2:25
Doubt it. I don't think Norris/Suzuki are any better than Perez
drassel
2:25
do you think Votto can produce at the same level without Cozart and Bruce in the lineup ?
Ben
2:25
Matt Duffy for Jake Odorizzi, who says no? Samardzija's been bad and Nuñez can play 3B with Arroyo in the wings.
august fagerstrom
2:25
yeah, Joey Votto isn't relying on Zack Cozart to be an amazing hitter.
Eric A Longenhagen
2:26
Not sure Tampa does that. They're kinda kicking back and waiting for someone to offer them the Louisiana Purchase for each of their arms.
Michael Scarn
2:26
Asked this to Dave but didn't get a response...would you guys consider the trade deadline to be lit at this point?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:26
For me, yes, it is objectively lit.
august fagerstrom
2:26
Confirmed: lit.
2:27
Shocked Dave didn't respond to that.
Jim leyland
2:27
Are the pirates sunk for the season? What move realistically can happen that will keep them in the hunt?
august fagerstrom
2:27
They're not gonna sell from the future for this season.
If they get in, they get in
