Hello baseball fans, and welcome back to another edition of the Rosterbatorical, the official MLB Daily Dish podcast. It's been quite the week since Chris and Matt last brought you some baseball audio, with a lot of trades happening. Luckily for you, both guys are back this week to breakdown everything that happened, and talk about the aftermath of the frenzy that is the MLB trade deadline.

They start by talking about what the Dodgers did, from trading for Josh Reddick and Rich Hill to demoting Yasiel Puig to Triple-A. Then they get into some of the bigger trades, like the Giants trading for Matt Moore.

If we are talking about winners from the deadline, the Rangers would have been at the top of the list, after getting both Carlos Beltran and Jonathan Lucroy. Matt and Chris talk about that, and give credit to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman for his work at the deadline.

And to close the show, not on purpose, the guys breakdown the Mets rather odd acquisition of outfielder Jay Bruce.

It's a jam-packed episode with a lot of information and context to all of these deals.
