Now that we have passed the non-waiver trade deadline, teams and players can focus their attention on what will come for the next two months. 

There are two sides to every trade. The acquiring team is trying to get better for a run at the postseason, while the trading team is, in most cases, looking toward the future and what it takes to win a championship down the line. 

Going over this year’s deals, while there weren’t a lot of big moves, enough of them were made that can have an impact on what happens in the postseason race. 

Since everyone loves predictions, we are going to tell you whether your favorite team’s deals are going to go boom or bust. We will only be discussing things at the MLB level, unless there was a deal with a top prospect or good group of prospects. 

A variety of factors will be taken into account including, health history, current performance, contract/arbitration status, etc.
