Zach Britton’s name has been tossed about on the trade market the past few days, which can’t make Orioles fans too happy.
Would the Orioles really trade their dominating closer? They’re four games under .500 entering the second half of the season (42-46), which puts them 7.5 back in the AL East but only four games out of the second wild-card spot.
We’re looking to make sure we have the nucleus of a competitive team going into year, he said. While we wouldn’t completely discount any possibility of a trade of that type, because who knows what may be presented, I don’t think enough would be presented for us to bite on that. Again, a lot of it has to do with how we view this team as we start thinking about next year as well.
Suffice to say deGrom isn’t completely untouchable, but he’s close to it. So teams are going to continue to pursue him until the Mets stick the trade equivalent of a chastity belt on him.

If the Cubs can win the series against the Cardinals and Brewers, with a four-game set against the White Sox sandwiched in between, the Cubs could find themselves atop the division as the calendar flips to August.
