In today's notes, Buster Olney looks back at the trade flurry of the past week with some thoughts and relevant links on the primary teams involved.
Cespedes: Tigers trading me not 'smart'
New Met Yoenis Cespedes told ESPN Deportes' Marly Rivera he found out about the move via TV and said about the Tigers: "I don’t think it was a good decision to throw in the towel this early. There’s still a lot of baseball to be played." 'I feel no pressure'
Tigers GM: Starting pitching not deep
Dave Dombrowski traded away three of Detroit's top players, and it's because he didn't think the Tigers could win a title: "However you would like to say it, unless you are in a position to win a world championship -- that's where we are at this time. In my heart, I didn't think we were there with the club."
The New York Mets addressed a need with the acquisition of outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers, but at what cost?
Adam Jones and Manny Machado homered, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied from a six-run deficit to beat the trade-ravaged Detroit Tigers 8-7 Friday night.
Final: Orioles 8, Tigers 7
The first 6 runs of the game belonged to Detroit. Then Baltimore came alive, as Adam Jones and Manny Machado both went deep to give the Orioles their 6th win in the past 7 games. Box score
Cespedes: Tigers trading me not 'smart'
New Met Yoenis Cespedes told ESPN Deportes' Marly Rivera that he found out about the move via TV and said about the Tigers: "I don’t think it was a good decision to throw in the towel this early. There’s still a lot of baseball to be played. But I know this is a business, and I am sure they know what they’re doing." 'I feel no pressure'
Martinez goes deep as Tigers open it up
Things are casual for Detroit after J.D. Martinez's 28th HR of the season gave the Tigers a 4-0 lead at the end of the 3rd. Wei-Yin Chen has 6 Ks for Baltimore, but he's allowed 7 hits to go with the 4 runs. Follow live
