The trade deadline (non-waiver) for major league baseball is this Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET. Predictably, things are picking up. Francisco Liriano was traded last night to the White Sox. Zack Greinke was traded to the Angels on Friday. Rumors also abound this time of year, with various columnists speculating on who's available and at what cost.
The Tigers, also pulled off a deal recently that has some discussing the merits of the deal and wondering, to paraphrase living legend Yogi Berra, whether history was repeating itself.
With apologies to the late Yogi Berra, it might be "deja vu all over again."
The Detroit Tigers have rolled the dice and traded a top pitching prospect for immediate help in this season's pennant race.
Just remember, it ain't over til it's over, guys.
