>And the award for Most Pointless Deal at the trading deadline goes to….

The Pirates and Diamondback for their 5 player deal involving Chris Snyder, Pedro Ciriaco, D.J. Carrasco, Ryan Church and Bobby Crosby!

Why is this deal pointless, you ask?  Because the two teams have won a combined 75 games, which would put them 9 games ahead of the ML-leading Yankess in the win column.  Unfortunately, teams cannot simply join forces like the Wonder Twins Zan and Jayna…. and, yes, I had to look up that obscure reference.

This trade is so pointless, I’m not even going to put the players’ names in the “labels” list below.
