That may have been the most insane trade deadline of all-time. All-stars, former Cy Youngs, and top prospects were dealt from coast-to-coast, and the entire playoff race has been turned on its head. Every single team made at least one trade, and that includes your favorite source of frustration, the Baltimore Orioles.
There had been weeks of discussion surrounding the players that the O’s front office may or may not make available. Ultimately, the only guys that got moved were a formerly DFA’ed reliever and an injured veteran shortstop. The incoming talent was a mid-tier relief prospect plus some cash.
On the excitement scale, it’s fair to say the Orioles fanbase was quite low. But it wasn’t entirely surprising. Much of the current roster is under team control for quite some time, and it likely proved difficult to find a match on the market. That could make for a busy winter for Mike Elias and crew.
On this week’s episode, the guys chat about the deadline, the future of Trey Mancini, the return of Richie Martin, and when Adley Rutschman will leave Bowie.
