The Ringer's Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann celebrate Adrián Beltré's 3,000th hit and improbable Hall of Fame career path (04:00), then break down all the action on trade-deadline day, including the Dodgers adding Yu Darvish to their already-formidable rotation (10:00), the Yankees acquiring Sonny Gray and Jaime García (21:30), and other contenders (including the Red Sox, Indians, and Nationals) restocking their bullpens (25:00). They also discuss whether teams such as the Red Sox, Astros, and Orioles should have been more active (27:30), as well as the steep decline in the value of Jonathan Lucroy (38:30), who was traded at a second consecutive deadline—this time for a much smaller return.
