After a debate over slowcore vs shoegaze, Andrew, Craig and Rex discuss three major acquisitions for the Houston Astros, the San Diego Padres blockbuster deal for Juan Soto and Josh Bell (and the Washington Nationals prospect haul in return) and other assorted trade deadline deals. They also dismissed the idea that the Angels would ever consider trading Shohei Ohtani and evaluated Mike Trout's Hall of Fame bona fides if he (God forbid!) never plays or never plays up to Mike Trout standards again. Finally, as usual, our check it out recommendations.
