MLB.com keeps saying the Indians thinks the O's want too much for Britton.  What do they think will are supposed to trade him for 3rd tier prospects?  How come the Yankees get a boat load of prospects when they traded A.Miller, but the O's can't get what they want for the best reliever in the game.  It really p...s me off.

One, Britton has been hurt.  And two, Indians don't have the resources the Dodgers and Astros have.  They can't compete with their offers for Britton.

Do they Indians even have "too much" to trade for Britton?  I like the Astros 2nd and 3rd tier guys rather than their 1st tier options.

Well my guess is we won't go off Mejia in a deal with them.  There is a huge drop off after him then another big drop off after Tristen.  They don't really make much sense to me and they already have a shutdown pen.

The Rangers may have made the worst trade in awhile at the deadline to get Jeffress and lecroy.

That was my favorite game last year.  They had just traded for Lucroy and Bundy had a no hitter going through 6 and out dueled Darvish.

kinsler and verlander, great players having down years, getting no real action now. possible after deadline, or winter for them.

Verlander seems like an ideal post-deadline guy.  He should pass through waivers with that huge contract.  Pitched well yesterday, so maybe a few more good starts improves the market.

Hoping for an Astro's trade.

Seems like it's been quiet with them today and us.  But the Hellickson trade shows that none of the national guys have a clue of what we're going to do.  They are just making stabs like the rest of us.

What they gave up to get them in Brinson and Ortiz and what they get back for them one year later is night and day.

Well if DD is asking for too much is what I meant in another post when when I was hoping he wouldn't be overplaying his hand. Time will tell I guess.

The good news is with three teams seriously in on Britton, Duquette should be able to get a pretty good deal! This could be exciting.

He will get it in too late. Peter is napping

To be fair, that has to be the weirdest trade of the year.

They are too busy signing Jumbo Diaz to a Minor league contrat.

Three suitors for Britton. It's put up or shutup for these teams. Duquette should be asking for the moon until 4:29 then take the best offer.

That time is 30 minutes too late Tony.....
