Predicting Each Team's Approach to the 2023 MLB Trade Deadline


With only six weeks remaining until Major League Baseball's August 1 trade deadline, it's time for another prognostication on which teams will be buying and which teams will be selling. But instead of simply offering up a boring "buyer" or "seller" designation for each team, we're taking it old school by asking a Magic 8 Ball whether each team will be a buyer at the trade deadline. OK, no, we didn't actually ask a Magic 8 Ball, but that 20-sided die floating in blue goo had 10 "yes," five "no" and five "ask again later" responses. And that 50/25/25 split is pretty well in line with the current breakdown of buyers, sellers and TBDs.
