    It was a bit of a stretch.

    Let me be clear - I'm actually quite happy that DD is out and Bloom is in.

    I just think DD takes a little too much flak for what he did.

    He might take flak, but he unquestionably did it. Itís not like a Lucchino situation where everyone hates him for stuff they assume he did...

    I don't hate Lucchino either, not in the least. In fact I think he did mostly good things for the franchise.

    I think he is a very underrated sports executive. The guy has been part of the front office for numerous championship teams in multiple sports. Heís just not very likable...

    The Padres and Rays both have quality prospects they have to leave unprotected. Will Bloom spring a deal?
    Today is the deadline for having a final 40 man roster for the Rule 5 draft. The Red Sox have 6 open spots on their 40 man. I expect some names added, and there will likely be trades around the league.

    With Tampa having a 40 man roster crunch, I expect Bloom to make a trade with them for a prospect or two he is familiar with. (One of there borderline prospects for protection is a shortstop named Lucius Fox, which is a name that should appeal to fans of Batman movies.)

    San Diego is in a similar spot with too many good prospects and not enough room to protect them..,

    Along with 28 pther MLB GMs.

    Only the Braves are making moves.

    Free agents signed by the Braves: 4

    Free agents signed by the rest of MLB: 3, two of whom really just accepted Qualifying Offers.

    Not much going on that's for sure. Tough when your trying to budget, I guess.

    Per OTM:

    “Wednesday night is the deadline for teams to submit their 40-man rosters ahead of December’s Rule 5 Draft.”

    With 9 hours until the deadline, only Atlanta has added any names to the 40 man roster...
