What a snoozefest

C'mon the Mets just got Baez...I am sure Jeets and company will respond with another deal that saves them a few million and a press conference about how this puts them in the position to win long term.

You know...exactly what fans hope for when they follow a team...

In theory they could still make trades after today. It just wouldn’t be by contending teams looking to get better. You’d see teams like the twins trying to unload contracts like Donaldson (which is what the marlins should be targeting. Contracts for good players that their teams no longer wish to pay)

Actually pretty sure they got rid of post deadline trades.

We already have Aguilar though.

Right, but apparently, the Yankees are just looking to dump Voit. If the Marlins can get him on the cheap, I would do it. Gives us another bat. Worst case scenario, he is a valuable bat off the bench (especially if the DH comes to the NL). Not making any money.

This is the problem with the trade deadline and the winter meetings and other hyped up pseudo deadlines for the fans. Every team is working their butts off right now but the truth is many things just won't get done today.

You’re absolutely right. They can only unload contracts through the waiver wire but no trades.

My general point still stands though, teams looking to strictly cut costs could be shedding big contracts thus creating more “moves” we have yet to see

Have you ever actually tried mincemeat pie?  Has anyone else? Sounds horrid but maybe it's good?

I have - just one bite and that was enough. It's disgusting

If it's all said and done and they don't get their "WOW" piece I will say I'd rather they signed Marte to an extension than traded for Luzardo. Since so far they've only weakened their lineup further and I do NOT trust them to spend in the offseason.
