I agree I like the move a lot for them, I had little interest in Archer for us and the Pirates didn’t give up much here. Now go beat out the VBs for one of the WC spots and keep them out of the playoffs.

Dodgers getting Axford. Say what you want about the Dodgers but they....certainly make a lot of transactions every deadline.

It's a little early for them, It seems like their deals always come out like 5 minutes after the deadline has passed.

Report is Harvey's staying put, so unless Theo had another late ninja move, this is our team.

Probably nothing else major, but a waiver deadline deal or two wouldn't surprise me.

I've seen about 15 teams reported to have made no further deadline deals, but haven't seen the Cubs listed just yet.

A depth outfielder and a third catcher seems to have been the Theo/Hoyer pattern for waiver deadline deals.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

The Brewers dismantling their defense to bring their offense up to respectability is fun.

Hamels/Chavez/Kintzler isn't a terrible deadline haul. I know a lot of us would have liked to see more, but it's not like we stood pat.

Schoop at SS, Shaw at 2B, Moose at 3B and Aguilar at 1B. This may be the single most awful defensive infield in decades. I'm sure the pitchers are all going to love that.

Still could get Matt Harvey as a waiver deal if needed. Cincinnati reportedly will try that route, feeling that he will pass through.

I don't get it -- aren't Villar and Schoop very similar players, output-wise? Both IF, about the same age, similar years of control left?

Am I allowed to make fun Galaxy Brain Stearns for trading more for Jonathan Schoop than it would have taken for Manny Machado?

I know we're kinda locked in to the roster we have but yeeeeeeesh, it has not been a good year of transactions for Theo and Co.

The Brewers using league-best defensive efficiency to take a rotation full of 5th starters to the top of the NL and then lighting it on fire to add a couple mediocre bats to their lineup sure is something.

I'm okay with we did, would've been nice to do more but think we made some solid moves. Smyly could be back soon too and always was kinda like a deadline addition we bought in the winter.
