Trade Deadline Newsbeat

REPORT: MLB GMs Considering Massive Change to Trade Deadline

​As the offseason kicks into gear, Winter Meetings are approaching, which means there’s plenty on the table that MLB GMs will be discussing, amid myriad trade requests.

One of the topics expected to be pondered is the trade deadline itself, however.

The deadline currently sits on July 31, with post-deadline deals allowed via waivers. The new proposal would see post-deadline waiver deals eliminated in favor of one hard deadline for all deals, presumably sometime in mid-August.

Any thoughts on the merit of this potential change?
