Sometimes it’s ok to take solace in a little bit of quiet. Not every day needs drama and there’s nothing wrong with the status quo. As you get older in life, you end up appreciating these days more and more. So a day after one of the quietest trade deadlines in a very long time, Thursday ended up being just as tame, if not more so, and we just had a nice, relaxing day of baseball. Sure, there may have been a few moments here and there, but certainly nothing earth-shattering. So with that, let’s just hit the fantasy highs and lows of the day as we gear up for the final two months of the season.
Today is major league baseball's trade deadline day. There are going to plenty of moves made, some minor some potentially major, and I'll tell you a little about all of that in this piece. I'll also break down how two players that fantasy leaguers want to build around have done this season (one is the Cubs' first baseman, the other a Phillies' outfielder). I'll also talk about a potential change in the Angels bullpen and how an old man with the Tigers is continuing to get it done. Finally, what happened to the power hitting first baseman of the Twins that used to be an MVP caliber hitter?
