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.

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.
