Tuesday’s Hot Clicks: Olivia Jordan; Sorting Through the MLB Trade Deadline

Tuesday August 1st, 2017

Who Won the Deadline?

Even with a flurry of activity leading up to yesterday, the trade deadline was a ton of fun. (Catch up with all the news of the day right here.) As a Yankees fan, I was hyped to see the package they gave up for Sonny Gray wasn’t too pricey, and after reading Tom Verducci’s column I’m already licking my lips thinking of a Dodgers-Yankees World Series. Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski saw what the Yanks did and talked a little trash

My favorite part of the day, though, was either Yu Darvish and Justin Verlander tweeting proof of life photos or Brandon Kintzler finding out he got dealt while feeding a rhino.
