Trade market stretches beyond Saturday

This quote from Colorado general manager Dan O’Dowd seems to be making the rounds.

“There’s really not a ton of players on the market right now in the impactful category,” O’Dowd told The Denver Post. “There’s one in particular I think if we’re not able to acquire by the 31st probably wouldn’t be there. The rest we’ve come across I don’t think the 31st is necessarily a firm deadline.”

O’Dowd also said this: “There’s not much bullpen help out there at all right now. I think the bullpen help is more taking back somebody that needs a change of scenery and hoping that the track record of the past manifests itself here. But acquiring a guy that’s pitching real well right now, I don’t think that’s possible. But that’s as of today, as of Tuesday. A lot could change by Saturday.”

Those two statements seem to resonate for the Yankees, who have been known to make post-deadline deals, and who are apparently being asked to give up the moon and the stars in a deal for bullpen help.
