Calling occupants of interleague baseball teams

Apologies for the brevity tonight, but I’m running late, havent got a really good second blog subject, so this will need to do.

Every year up to this one, there has been a big trade deadline date in the MLB at end of July, but then until the end of August there was a secondary way of trading players, but not this year, its done now. I’m sure that in the next few days, one of the big teams is going to lose a major player, will not be able to trade for a replacement, and all hell will break out, especially if its the Yankees, lol. As long as its not the Dodgers, lol…

Of course they can still bring in free agents (unlikely to be many major pieces at this time of year), or players from their lesser quality teams. Of course it will be interested to see how this plays out, as I think that will show whether its a one year wonder, or not. I think the theory was that it might boost the market, but seems to have had the opposite effect, due to more teams being in contention, so I suspect we will be back to 2 trade dates next season, somehow, lol. But yes, if events at the end of July have a critical effect on events at end of October, well…?

Oh, and mentioning crazy end of year dates, the main part of the US golf year ends tonight! So they can get the playoffs out the way before the NFL season starts, seriously? Mind, the 2020 season starts in September, so…

Right, video time. The song is obvious, but its a single length version of the Klaatu version, as opposed to the long length Carpenters version!
