Outside The Confines: Trade deadline madness

The moves haven’t been crazy, but the deadline is coming.

The trade deadline is looming, and teams only have until 3 p.m. CT Friday to make the essential moves they will need in order to bolster their rosters for the quickly approaching postseason.

With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the only things anyone in the baseball world can talk about is the deadline and the moves that have already been made, and the ones people expect to see.

Big names are on the radar (including Kris Bryant, notably, as well as some other Cubs), Max Scherzer, and more surprises sure to come (I can’t say I saw the Nelson Cruz to the Rays trade coming!). With that in mind we’re leading first with the big trade discussion, then we’ll get into some non-trade links after that.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
