The trade deadline prices that could be snatched from baseball’s biggest morons

Five weeks ago – before a launch was launched this season – it wouldn’t have been hard to predict that clubs such as perennial rebuilders Pittsburgh and Baltimore would be trade-off sellers, as would takedown artists off season Cincinnati and Oakland.

The Cubs and Nationals were huge sellers last July, and there wouldn’t have been big eyes if you were expecting the same this season.

But we are already seeing how the sell side could become more crowded. That’s because sport is more split between haves and have-nots than ever before. And that doesn’t seem to be a coincidence. It seems to be a trend.

In the 10 seasons from 2008 to 2017, 11 teams in total finished with 100 losses. In the last three full seasons (2018, 2019, 2021), there have also been 11. From 2002 to 2016, 14 teams combined have won 100 games. In the last four full seasons (add 2017 to the previous group), there have been 13.
