That is, say Micah Owings and Josh Whitesell are currently on waivers. And say the Astros make a waiver claim on both of them. Wouldn't that screw up the trade? Or would Walt just have to renegotiate for different players?
Sorry if I'm being dense here, but I'm just trying to figure out how this works.
The Diamondbacks could send the players to the Reds after the season ended.
That's what happened in 1995. The Reds sent Mark Lewis to Detroit after the season ended to complete the Wells trade.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
