It has been a very busy week in the Rays trade headquarters, so much so it sometimes feels like someone has gone a little roster-shuffle happy on their fantasy league and decided to start moving pitchers left, right, and center.
With the moves of Nathan Eovaldi, Matt Andriese, and now Jonny Venters all in the span of 48 hours, with no indication they’re slowing down. Heck, by the time this post goes live on Friday morning I can’t be sure there will be anyone left we recognize in the bullpen.
But that’s the excitement of the trade deadline. Guys are shuffled in an elaborate chess game between teams who are going all in for contention, those who have given up hope on the season, and... well... the Rays, because who can even tell what they’re doing right now.
Trade moves are the name of the game this week. What trade would you make if you had free reign, with what team, and what would you expect in return?
Head over to the FanPosts section, select “New FanPost” on the left, and make those roster moves.
