Yep. If I were the White Sox and selling a guy like Jesse Crain, I would make him available today to the highest bidder and they see what kind of bidding war I can drum up. Plenty of teams are ready to buy and very limited choices.
The longer they wait, the more teams fall out of it and the more supply increases.
Another thing that will hurt the market is that some of the teams that could be sellers are the biggest money teams. I doubt we see someone like the Angels selling at the deadline. Probably not the Phillies and certainly not the Yankees.
