FanPost Friday: What trade deadline moves would you make?

Let’s play GM.

The trade deadline is looming large, and now there’s an extra hitch. In previous years there was the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, and the August 31 waiver trade deadline. But as of 2019, that August 31 deadline no longer exists. Which means any team who wants to make trades and bolster their rosters for the postseason needs to make those moves now.

If you’ve been reading any major baseball publication the last few weeks, this is the biggest topic of discussion: who will the contending teams try to lock down, and who are they willing to give up to get them? The Rays have a robust farm system, and are definitely in on the wild card hunt (and heck, even still the AL East hunt), so what do you think they’re going to do to push through to the postseason?

We want your wildest, boldest speculations of the moves the Rays could make ahead of the July 31 trade deadline. Who do you think they’ll go after? Which prospects do you think they’ll give up?

Head over to the FanPost section and select “New FanPost” on the left, then take a turn playing GM, and make those trades!
