With the trade deadline lurking this week, you have to factor this in when you are making bets.
I would be shocked if the Rays trade David Price before July.31, 2014. This team has erased so many deficits since 2008, and they have been the best team in the league for the last 25% of the year.
I would also predict the Royals to add a bat for the last 2 months.
Pittsburgh has a lot of money in their wallets for a few salary dumps even if they have to wait for the non-waiver deadline.
Cincinnati is fading fast and needs to wheel and deal for some replacement help.
St. Louis has never played well without Molina, and while I love the A.J. Pierzynski addition, they must not stay stagnant here.
The Yankees should break the bank on several more trades now that they are going to be Luxury Tax Abusers yet again!

When we look at how this offense was put together, we saw a lot of decent draft picks, a few nice trades sprinkled in, and a few Free Agents signed along the way.
With Francisco Lindor coming along the way, this is probably the swan song for SS Asdrubal Cabrera, however one can’t forget this franchise fleeced the Mariners for the asset that was Eduardo Perez. to obtain his services.
Cabrera has had a nice stay in Cleveland, with 2 ALL – Star Selections, one Silver Slugger – and has provided nice defense for the last 8 years.
Carlos Santana capped off a 9 for 14 series by getting on base 5 times with a pair of homers and 2 RBI helping the Indians top the Royals, 10-3.
Josh Harrison went 4-6 with a double and a homer and a pair of stolen bases as the Pirates won 7-5 in Colorado.
Yohan Pino allowed just 4 hits and 1 walk in 6 innings while striking out 6 White Sox batters. He did not get the decision but set up Minnesota’s 4-3 victory.
Doug Fister pitched 7 shutout innings, giving up just 3 hits and walking 1 as the Nationals took a tense 4-2 game in Cincinnati.
They owned baseball on July 27, 2014.
