QUICK THOUGHTS ON SOME TRADE DEADLINE DEALS
Atlanta improved their bullpen. Good move for both sides.
Good move for Detroit and a bad one for the Chicago Cubs, who needed a second baseman and now declined defensively.
Arizona finally got rid of Zack Greinke‘s Bad contract and Houston improved their rotation. Houston however are on borrowed time as contenders with Gerrit Cole on his way out after the season and the declining Justin Verlander and Greinke anchoring their rotation.
The San Francisco Giants didn’t trade any of their free agents to be, despite being nowhere near good enough to make the playoffs, but traded a reliever that is signed through next season and could’ve helped them in their pointless attempt at making the playoffs this season.
