2014 Midseason Update, Trade Hyperactivity

Look out for the 13-team pileup at the top of the midseason MMDA power rakings. That's the number of teams with winning percentages of .500 or better through 84 games, and 11 of those teams have at least broken even in terms of run differential. Good luck handicapping that playoff field!

The midseason update also contains all-stars and award winners at the midpoint, including first-half MVP Miguel Cabrera of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who is hitting .341/.434/.713 with a league-leading 35 home runs and 92 RBIs.

A flurry of trade activity heading into the second half suggests that league managers were well aware of the bunched-up standings. The Dodgers dealt their first-round pick for No. 2 starter Justin Masterson and closer Sergio Romo. The Lions traded talented young shortstop Chris Owings for Prince Fielder, a middle-of-the-order bat the club desperately needs. The Fighting Irish went all-in for 2014, picking up starter A.J. Griffin, leadoff-hitting outfielder Daniel Nava and lefty reliever Manny Parra in three separate deals.

Among the sellers were the Dutchmen, who picked up promising young players Danny Salazar, Kolten Wong and the aforementioned Owings in a pair of deals. The Stars made a trio of trades that netted still-just-24-years-old Jesus Montero, backup catcher Martin Maldonado, a fourth-round pick and a raft of relievers that includes Aaron Crow, Eric O'Flaherty and Jason Motte.
