    The frustrating thing is that the luxury tax threshold actually mattered. We jumped through all those hoops to get under the cap and reset the tax for a year only to have to do it again when we have a strong contender and they’re gonna write a new CBA? I don’t get it.

    After all that, the trade deadline will leave us with one fewer first baseman. Pretty cool.

    Voit’s attractive to a team who expects to contend again in a couple years. Maybe even the Nats.

    Totally. Top 15 hitter in baseball for a guy who we’d probably lose in next year’s Rule 5.

    Pineda is a good bet at this point. Last couple starts have been solid. Underrated, great K/BB ratio, should cost next to nothing. It’s late enough that think he or Heaney could fall to the Sox for virtually nothing. On the latter front sounds like Raisel Iglesias is still a target.

    What Can/Should NY Do?

    Gibson’s last three starts (two against Detroit): 0-3, 7.79 ERA, 12 walks and 13 strikeouts in 17.1 IP Soft contact skills seem pretty stable but the home run and walk rates have started the climb the last month. If everyone else is healthy, do we start him in Game 4 over Pivetta?

    The Rockies’ interim GM apparently deciding to sit out the trading deadline has made this pretty difficult.

    Red Sox acquire Kyle Schwarber

    Wow, all our foes putting their chips in. There’s some virtue to holding while these teams clear out their systems (while at least one will fail to make the postseason at all). This makes it a little less likely the Jays retain Robbie Ray next year, and he’s a guy I’d love to see us sign.

    Was probably a message to the Dodgers that they need to include Josiah Gray, just like this could be a message to get us to give up Duran.

    I think we do have the resources. As of now, our farm system ranks 13th per FanGraphs, which is a pretty strong turnaround after a year. (The Yankees have dropped to 14th after the Gallo and Rizzo deals). The odds seem pretty high that more deals are coming for us. We’re a near lock for the...
