On the 21th episode of the DFA podcast, R.J. rejoins the show to talk about some of the deadline deals, including the red-hot Tim Beckham’s move to Baltimore and the Yu Darvish blockbuster. Then it’s on to the Mariners (where Jerry Dipoto snagged another first baseman) and the regular league-wide roundup.
Tampa Bay gives up on former no. 1 overall pick Tim Beckham, sending him to Baltimore for minor leaguer Tobias Myers.
The no. 1 pick in the 2008 draft has not turned out as expected, yet very little has changed.
