I’m just out of bed and it has already been an interesting trade day.
- Cleveland Natives picked up Andrew Miller for Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield, Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen.
- The Cardinals got Zach Duke from the White Sox for Charlie Tilson. Duke was one of the guys I hoped the Jays would be looking at.
- The Yankees got Tyler Clippard, for reasons that I don’t understand at the moment.
- And the Clevelanders also tried to trade for Brewers’ Jonathan Lucroy, who would have been a huge upgrade at catcher, but Lucroy voted the trade. I’m not sure why he wouldn’t want to play for a that will likely be going to the playoffs, but he is very much under paid.
Nothing from the Jays yet. Seeing the prospects moving for bullpen help, I have my doubts much will happen.
Use the thread to discuss trades/rumors as they happen.
