With 40-man rosters now allowed, you may want to consider starting the clocks on some of these players. If they happen to be 26+ and have EXP=0 in January, they will be eligible for the FA draft under "Rule 5". List below is for Age=25+ and EXP=0 (some may have their birthday in the offseason)

Fire sale in Argentina really strengthened the contenders in the other divisions.

Some great pick ups for the Archers.....going to be interesting to see how they develop in a couple of seasons.

Nice deals for all teams.

Really interesting to see the tight divisional races become arms races.  I'm bummed I missed out on all those good veterans that ARG traded, but my FA situation made it tough to add a vet, as I have exactly six players I want to protect.  Adding anyone would have had a premium cost, and hurt my ability to make a strong offer (though I tried).

I do think that ARG should have waited until the off season for at least the younger players he traded.  Other than Dock Buckeye (who I like as a primary piece coming back for Vaughn), I don't see anything that looks great.   I think only having a handful of playoff positioned teams with relatively weak farm systems as legit takers likely hurt the price on those veterans, and I doubt he had time to really do comprehensive negotiations.

FA pool should be pretty good this year, if nothing else...

It comes down to this: September baseball.  What a race it has been, no matter how it ends.  Tony, I've got to give you mad props man.  It would've been easy to give up after all those offseason losses, but you quickly retooled and have once again fielded a truly amazing team and given me a battle for the ages. 

Let's look at how the two teams stack up:

Entebbe advantages

1.  Arrival of reinforcements from a deadline deal with Argentina along with the return of Andy Sommerville from the DL give the Zealots an even better lineup and pitching staff
2.  Momentum.  Entebbe has gone 19-3 since dropping series to Calabria and Cairo.  Will getting hot at the right time put them on top?
3.  Top-heavy rotation, which becomes a huge advantage with 4-man rotations now allowed.

Calabria advantages

1.  Two-game lead.  Calabria currently leads in the only category that really counts.  Bottom line is that the pressure is on Entebbe to play catch-up, like it has been all year long.
2.  The league's best offense means that no lead is safe when facing the Godfathers.  No matter how good a pitcher is, these guys can make you pay for any mistake.
3.  Calabria dealt a crushing blow by sweeping the last head to head series between the two titans.  No doubt that the 4 remaining Head to Head games are the most critical of September matchups.

Another Move By The Capys
by Wolf Blitzner, Senior Sports Editor for the Rio Times

After the deal that sent the then frontline Rio starter Stephen Ayer to Amity for outfield prospect Steve Hough, the consensus was that the Capybaras were done with trades for the season. Shortly before the deadline, however, that assumption would be proven wrong.

The deal sent the 2058 second-round amateur draft pick for Rio to Amity as well as pitching prospect Luc Gauthier for outfielder Marty Brainard, pitcher Gaston Nabors and second baseman Cleveland Whitten.

We sat down with Rio EVP Tony Khan to discuss this deal, the context around it and the future outlook of the team.

Wolf Blitzner: Thank you for sitting down with us to talk a bit, Tony. I know it's been a little busy lately.

Tony Khan: No problem Mr. Blitzner, it's been a crazy few days getting this done and wrapping up the tail end of the season.

WB: So first things first: tell us why you made the deal in the first place. It seemed like this was part two of the earlier deal with [Stephen] Ayer.

TK: Well, with the trade deadline approaching we wanted to get a deal done as quickly as possible to upgrade the future prospects (no pun intended) of this team. We really appreciate Stephen [Ayer]'s work for the franchise, but both sides (us and Stephen) felt that it was in his best interest to get him to a team that would be in the window of contention soon. So we got that deal done and acquired Steve Hough, who we really like and hope he develops into a solid option going forward.

WB: So it's not like the deals were connected. What kicked off this second deal?

TK: While scouting the prospects in the White Sharks' system, [outfielder] Marty Brainard caught our eye. That kid has a lot of raw potential in his bat, but will need some work to fully realize it. We felt he was the crown jewel of the deal and would become a top prospect in our system, as he was in Amity's. We kept going back and forth with Amity's front office and circled around a few deals before we finally got one done that both sides felt truly comfortable with. Now that it's all said and done, we feel that even though we had to give up a little to get it done, the returns on this investment could be enormous. Time will tell everything, but I think it put us in a better place going forward.

WB: How do you feel that Brainard will fit in your future plans?

TK: Well, like I stated before, the guy's got a lot of potential in his bat. Hopefully the staff can work on his fielding ability, but with how everything is developing, he'll definitely be a strong bat in the lineup, either at RF or DH. It's hard to project a few years in the future, but again, we felt that the return could be huge on this.

WB: So you had to deal away pitcher Luc Gauthier as well, and got pitcher Gaston Nabors and got 2B Cleveland Whitten back after he was initially cut. Any quick thoughts on them?

TK: We felt that the future potential of Nabors outweighed some of the risk and reward of Gauthier. He's got a little more time to develop than Luc, so hopefully Gaston's better initial feel for his pitches will help. As for Cleveland, we really wanted to get him back after some roster crunch initially forced him out. If nothing else, you can't have enough good hitters when you're in the pennant race in the future, so we'll see where it goes.

WB: Thank you for your time, Tony. What's next, if you don't mind me asking?

TK: You're welcome. Honestly, we'll just evaluate what we have at the end of the season and see what further opportunities come up for us. We're giving some older prospects some playing time and see what they can offer. We're looking to make an impact and turn things around, but it's going to take some time, and we're aware of it. Better times are ahead for Rio.
