    Today's trade deadline

    The Mets pen blew another game last night. It's hard to imagine them not trying to acquire someone like Weathers or Affeldt before the deadline tonight. Aug 31 is the last day to acquire a player who will qualify for the playoff roster, as I recall.

    I'm for it.

    I'd take Dylan Owen. 22YO, RHP. 26 starts mostly at A+ but at AA now. Combined 145 IP, 128K, 39BB, 3.41 ERA, 13HR, 1.30 GO/AO ratio. 20th Round pick in the 2007 draft. They can have both Affeldt and Weathers.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    I care, because it means I won't have to listen to announcers overrate the pest over the 7 games the Red Sox still have left with the Jays.
