That is the reason for the little activity this season. There has also been talks of moving the trading deadline to August 15th in hopes to more clearly define the teams out of the playoff picture.

The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the Houston Astros favored by +200 odds. There were worries about Greinke coming out of spring training about a decline in velocity. He has silenced his critics with a 10-4 record with ERA of 2.90 and WHIP of 0.92 in 146 innings of work. Greinke has been durable with 32 starts or greater in five of six seasons. In 2019 he is tracking over 32 starts. Quality starting pitching in the playoffs is a premium. Houston has a solid 1-2-3 punch in Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole and Zack Greinke. These three starters also have the lowest WHIP of any starter in Major League Baseball. Verlander 0.81, Greinke 0.94 and Cole 1.00. They had to give up three of their top five prospects to land him. What they kept were the top pitching and outfielder prospect. Greinke is signed for this season and the next two seasons.

Second in the wagering are the LA Dodgers bringing back +325 odds. LA is banking on Clayton Kershaw, Hyun Jin Ryu and Walker Buehler. When Rich Hill gets healthy, he could be the fourth starter he is expected back September 1st. Stripling, Urias and Maeda hit the bullpen. Their top pitching prospect Dustin May makes his MLB debut on Friday. With David Friese, Enrique Hernandez and Chris Taylor on the DL the Dodgers made a move for Jedd Gyorko who has been on the DL since early June with a back ailment. He showed production the prior two seasons in St Louis.

Next are the New York Yankees at +425 odds. The asking price for premium starting pitching was high at the deadline during this live ball period. New York general manager Brian Cashman was unwilling to meet the high price to attain a quality starter. Masahiro Tanaka, James Paxton and Domingo German could be their starting three in the playoffs. Could see C.C. Sabathia get some spot starts at home. J.A. Happ could be moved to the bullpen. Luis Severino is expected back in September. Reliever Dellin Betances is about two weeks away from returning.

Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs bring back +1200 odds. Atlanta helped their bullpen picking up Shane Greene from Detroit and Chris Martin from Texas. Mark Melancon comes over from San Francisco. He has been a steady arm the past few seasons and coming off a great month of July. Their rotation includes Mike Soroka, Max Fried, Julio Teheran and Dallas Keuchel. Soroka has performed well but his first full season you must worry about pitch count, strength and stamina once the playoffs arrive.

Chicago Cubs struggling hitting lefty’s at .231 overall and .147 in their past five games. They acquired Nick Castellanos from Detroit for two prospects. Castellanos is batting .347 against lefthanders. Pitching rotation is Jon Lester, Jose Quintana, Yu Darvish and Kyle Hendricks.

Minnesota Twins checks in with +1300 odds. Twins a very good hitting team. In the rotation they can count on Jose Berrios. Jake Odorizzi has not been as productive lately. Kyle Gibson, Martin Perez and Michael Pineda round up the staff. Twins looked to improve a bullpen with an ERA of 4.41 acquired reliever Sam Dyson from the Giants. He has put up solid numbers in his three seasons with San Francisco.

At +1500 odds are the St Louis Cardinals. Cardinals could not improve on starting pitching. They will go with Miles Mikolas, Jack Flaherty, Dakota Hudson and Adam Wainwright. They are tied with the Cubs in the NL Central Race with a recent surge. They traded an injured third baseman for a 19 year old LA Dodger pitching prospect. For four straight seasons St Louis has been unable to make a major deal at the All Star Break.

A longshot includes the Washington Nationals at +2500 odds. A solid 1-2-3 punch in the starting rotation in Max Scherzer, Patrick Corbin and Steven Strasberg. Anibal Sanchez has contributed as the four. With a bullpen ERA of 5.90, worst in baseball and 20 blown saves the team needed to do something. They picked up relievers Daniel Hudson from Toronto with Roenis Elias and Hunter Strickland from Seattle which are all positive contributors.

Other Longshots include the Cleveland Indians at +2000, Boston Red Sox at +2000, San Francisco Giants at +6000 odds and New York Mets +20,000 odds.

Cleveland sits three games back of Minnesota in the AL Central and has a +2 ½ game lead for a wildcard spot. Starting pitching Trevor Bauer was dealt and the Indians improved their offense and bullpen. Yasiel Puig can contribute. Frammil Reyes has 27 homers with San Diego this season. Hunter Wood contributed nicely for Tampa Bay in the bullpen the past two seasons. Mike Clevinger and Shane Bieber two top starters. Danny Salazar has returned from the DL. Corey Kluber is expected back in two weeks.

Boston is ten games back of the Yankees and 2 ½ back in the AL Wildcard. Their starting rotation has an ERA of 4.82. They will go with Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, Adam Cashner and Eduardo Rodriguez. Just like the Yankees, the Red Sox did not want to meet the high price for premium starting pitching that has escalated during the live ball period.

San Francisco kept Madison Bumgarner. Maybe his price was too high. He did have an expiring contract. Instead the Giants shipped out a ton of good relievers in exchange for mainly hitting prospects. They did not get a solid power bat in the lineup that was greatly needed.

Mets look for 2020 as they acquired starting pitching Marcus Stroman from Toronto. They are 4 ½ games out of a Wildcard spot but they must pass four teams. Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Marcus Stroman are a solid 1-2-3 punch to their rotation. Team has won six straight so they are still with a shot in 2019 if they can get positive contributions from Zack Wheeler, Steven Matz and their bullpen. Past ten games they are crushing lefthanders batting .304 but only .207 against righty handed pitchers.
