ESPN | Buster Olney: The Astros traded for domestic abuser Roberto Osuna. Olney calls BS on their purported “zero-tolerance policy.”

FanGraphs | Dan Szymborksi: You want some bold trade predictions. That wasn’t a question. Szymborksi has a few not-completely-crazy ideas for big names switching teams.

The Ringer | Michael Baumann: The Yankees are Schrödinger’s baseball team: excellent and awful at the same time. Baumann captures the essence of being a Yankees fan.

Baseball Prospectus | Rob Mains ($): Mains continues his season-long series looking back at baseball in 1968. In this episode, he checks in on a Cy Young winner, a Hall of Famer, and an unlikely no-hitter.
