Maybe it’s the Olympics. Maybe it’s something else. I have no idea, but it seems like we are way less awash in crazy, tenuous speculation, mystery teams, tire-kicking and this or that scoop writer “hearing this” or that. To the extent there have been trade rumors, they’ve been pretty straight forward things like “a lot of teams are interested in Zack Greinke.”
Thank goodness for Kevin Goldstein, then:

It’s been a long week. It’s after 5. I think “wacky high” sounds just fine right about now. I’ll take it.
