With about 30 hours to go before the deadline (no waiver trades this year), this trade season has been surprisingly quiet so far. So perhaps this title is tempting fate.
Stroman is the only major piece to be traded thus far, and the A’s acquisitions of ex Royals have been barely enough to whet the palate.
A’s have been linked to Syndergaard, Wheeler, Roark, and various relievers. We’ll see if they go incremental upgrades like last year (tbh my preferred route) or cash in everything (ala 2014).
Feel free to use this as a GT for the series against the Brewers starting tonight.
