MLB Central Division Chatter: Deadline Day


In Week #2 of Overtime Heroics MLB Podcast, “Cheap Seats Chatter,” I sat down with Ryan Garcia to talk trades. Nothing better than discussing the deadline, and MLB’s Central divisions on deadline day. We ended the recording just as that final minute ticked away, with news coming fast and furious.

The Cubs and Reds seemed to be silent, then all of the sudden, all hell broke loose. OF Cameron Maybin, LHP Andrew Chafin and LHP Josh Osich got snatched up by the Cubs in the closing minutes, just a day or so after the Cubs grabbed Jose Martinez.

The Reds managed to snatch RHP Archie Bradley from the Diamondbacks, in exchange for a PTBNL and LHP Packy Naughton. The Reds also grabbed LF Bryan Goodwin from the Dodgers, in exchange for LF Josh VanMeter and OF Stuart Fairchild.

While some teams remained quiet, others bought at a furious pace. Nothing seemed logical, and it stayed that way all the way through the end of the deadline. Have a listen!

In the event that you missed last week’s inaugural podcast, we broke down everything in both of MLB’s Central Divisions. Good stuff!

See ya next week!
