Look @ the NL East.
The team predicted to win the division is currently in last, all the teams have a .500+ record, but only 5.5 games seperate them......
my guess..... all buyers
Only 1 team @ 500
Dodgers + San Fran within 5 games of 1st.
In another division those 2 teams would be selling..... who knows what they are gonna do.
Houston, rallying from a horrible start..... 1 month ago they would of been selling..... still 10 games out...... buy? sell?
Cubs- 12.5 games back.... Injury riddled staff... will they sell? Im guessing no
Milkwakuee- 14.5 games back. First chance to get .500 record in what must be 15 years. They're not selling... probably not buying either.
toronto/ balt. both slipping..... both buying
Detroit @ .500 theyre not selling
Oak: surging...saving managements jobs.... no money to buy, they're not selling.
texas: 49-50....... looking to dump Soriano for pitching...... is that buy or sell??
So if you really look @ it, there are only a handful of teams that are looking to sell this year.... Tampa, KC, Seattle, Pitt, Cincy, Col
with a ton of borderline teams......
Balt, Tor, Clev, Minn, Cubs, Hou, Ari, LAD, SanFran, Philly, NYM,
I bet things will remain very quiet until one of these borderline either throws their hands up, or makes a big move...... at which point it will probably spur a flurry of moves in all the tight divisions.
