so in the cron to TB deal, dickerson was DFA'd... that seems odd? assuming it's a short term deal because he had options and will brought back when other trades happen.

Can someone explain why Cdick was DFAed?  This does not make any sense to me.

maybe the Angels are making room for another 1B...plenty of options still out there! OR...just clearing PT for Albert at 1b...and more Ohtani at DH

Valbuena needed a place to play with Cozart in town.  It makes sense to split between Poojhols and Valbuena.  Luis was CLUTCH for us last year.  No problems with this move.

Cbs reporting Odorizzi trade was for some no name SS. 


Rays GM appears to be on a solid bender tonight. Archer for Darwin Barney deal may even be in the works !!

Or the explanation for Texas' Volquez signing..... straight up for Archer!!!!

Rays finding out it's hard to make trades for "good" players when a bunch of "good" players still remain unsigned.


Rays' GM says they DFA'd Dickerson to spur on a conclusion to trade talks they've already had with many teams. Reddit hivemind says the Rays lost a lot of leverage, but really the remaining FA market along with many big spenders already at the luxury tax cap is what's killing their leverage IMO.
