The Rays totally shocked the baseball world, beating the Yankees to reach the World Series for the second time in their 22-year history. Moreover, Tampa Bay lost the matchup for the Commissioner's Trophy to the Dodgers in six games.
The New York Yankees missed out on trading for Trevor Bauer on Wednesday night with the trade deadline just hours away.
The trade deadline in MLB, for the first time a sole one, is just nine days away and needless to say a lot of star pitchers from underachieving teams are on the market. With Madison Bumgarner off market for now, attention turns to Texas Rangers ace Mike Minor – second in Earned Run Average in the American League with 2.86.
