Hello… Buyers and Sellers



Good morning everyone and welcome back to the blog. Earlier in the week I laid out a plan to go over various things over the next month or so here on the blog, but none more important than the July 31st trade deadline. I want to step outside my horizons some, not too much, and cover not just the Yankees during this hot stove season, but as many of the teams and players that could be making moves and moving as I can. That process started a couple days ago but I feel like before we get too far into it that we have to lay out who the potential buyers will be, who the potential sellers will be, and who won’t probably know what they are doing for a couple more weeks. That seems like a good starting point to me.

BUYERS:

New York Yankees
Boston Red Sox
Cleveland Indians
Houston Astros
Seattle Mariners
Atlanta Braves
Washington Nationals
Philadelphia Phillies
Milwaukee Brewers
Chicago Cubs
St. Louis Cardinals
Arizona Diamondbacks
Los Angeles Dodgers

SELLERS:

Tampa Bay Rays
Baltimore Orioles
Toronto Blue Jays
Chicago White Sox
Kansas City Royals
Texas Rangers
New York Mets
Miami Marlins
Cincinnati Reds
San Diego Padres

TO BE DETERMINED:

Detroit Tigers
Minnesota Twins
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Oakland Athletics
Pittsburgh Pirates
San Francisco Giants
Colorado Rockies

Oh, and baby. I love you and I would buy you a million times over if I could. You are the most beautiful, most kind, most sincere and most awesome person that I know. I love you to the mailbox and back! A million kisses for you this morning.

  1. I believe any team that is five games out are actually sellers. Maybe an exception here or there but they are indeed contemplating a sell off of at least expiring contracts.

    Now I think as far as the Yankees are concerned they will be looking for pitching.

    Brad Hand and Philipe Rivero (lol or his new name) are top trade choices of relievers.

    Not much on starting pitchers yet. Hard to believe Mets would trade either, specially to the their cross town rivals. Top choices to be Cole Hamels or Ian Happ. Hamels has to be a rental and not want his option vested. Happ is an in divisional rival. That may be an issue. Like an Archer would be.

    Couple to keep an eye out for would be Michael Fulmer and James Tallion.
