2014 Trade Deadline...
« on: July 08, 2014, 11:26:46 AM »
Yeah I know, it's MLB and there are more loopholes than we can count, but the "hard" deadline is July 31st.  So that begs the question, what would you like to see your team do, or who would you like them to get?

Me: I'm a Pirates fan, and I think they need starting pitching.  I would have loved to see them get Smardja (sp) but I knew the Cubs wouldn't trade in the division.  Otherwise the only spot they NEED to upgrade is 1st base.

Change Pirates to Brewers and you get the same thing

The Mets have an over abundance of oitfielders. They need shortstop and relief pitching

My Orioles need starting pitchers too.
Some things never change.

Seems as though most teams have that need, starting pitching.  Locally everyone (bandwagon fans that don't really understand MLB) was so upset that the Pirates wouldn't pay AJ Burnette 13mill a year.  So the pirates signed Volquez and have basically gotten the same pitcher for less than 1/2 the money.  But it's scary when Volquez is your #2 YIKES.

Morton and Locke are pitching very well of late.

Yeah not bad, but still no true #1 on the team.  I like Cole a lot but he's a solid #2 or 3 on most teams.  Plus he's had a rough year so far health wise.  How bout you guys, seriously that offense is just sick!  Which is good cause they need to put up about 10 runs every game that Norris pitches :)
