Push back

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Com­mis­sioner Rob Man­fred thinks base­ball may need to con­sider mov­ing the trade dead­line back so teams in the hunt for a wild card have more time to make de­ci­sions. A sec­ond wild card in each league was added in 2012, keep­ing more teams in play­off con­tention long past the July 31 non-waiver trade dead­line. Man­fred said teams may “want to wait a lit­tle longer” to eval­u­ate their ros­ter needs. How­ever, Man­fred also said Wed­nes­day they want teams whose cores have been to­gether in the post­sea­son, so “you have to just bal­ance those two is­sues.”
