He'll still be a setup guy, so he should. We'll have a TA for that trade up soon.

Exceptionally light trading deadline action. It seems between the August deals to come and the added wild-card spot, many teams are/were reluctant to move players as they have been in past years...

What you mentioned, plus the loss of compensation picks for rentals and the fact that all 30 teams have enough money to lock up their best players have completely killed the trade deadline.

And it's a vicious circle, because since teams can't acquire talent their more liable to hang onto their own... which means they hang on to prospects more than before.

Interesting. Might just be me, but this seems like a quieter trade deadline than usual. The biggest players dealt were two 2-3ish starters, while the biggest prospect was probably Garcia(?).

Hey, did the Yankees ever send anything back in the Chris Nelson trade with Colorado? It matters for my fantasy league, where we still award the PTBNL (if there is one) to the owner of the player traded. It was a PTBNL or cash, but since they dropped him off on the Angels, they aren't sending a player to COL are they? Is the trade still open or is it closed?
Thanks!
