Sounds like Sale to the Nationals is down to dotting the I's and crossing the T's.

Scherzer-Sale-Strasberg-Roark-Gonzalez/Ross is scary.

That might top the Halladay/Hamels/Lee/Oswalt rotation the Phillies had a few years ago.

I forgot Oswalt was in that group too. Wow.

They didn't win anything, so it doesn't promise them anything. They'll still need to address their offense once they figure this deal out.

Guess the Nats didn't bring enough dots.

Sale confirmed to the Red Sox. IF Yoan Moncada (their #1 prospect, #1 overall), RHP Michael Kopech (their #5 prospect, #67 overall) and two more to the White Sox.

That's an excellent haul for the White Sox IMO. Clutch acquisition for the Bo Sox as well. He and Price make a pretty vicious top of the rotation.

MLBTR is reporting that the Cubs are closing in on a deal for Wade Davis. Guess you can cross him off the Cards wish list...

And it's back to being close to done. Soler for Davis is the rumor.

Are we really going to let Wade Davis go to the Cubs for a league average outfielder?

I sure hope we like not winning.

Carlos Gomez stays with Rangers on a 1-year, $11.5M deal.

Desmond to the Rockies (!) for 5/70 with an option. That has to signal a trade of one of their LH OF.

I'd still love to see Blackmon in CF.

This floors me that was the best offer for Davis after what Miller and Chapman brought at the deadline.

Eaton is going to the Nats for Giolito. I can see why the Cards didn't pay that price.

The White Sox are doing it right. Plus still have more to sell.
