  • After acquiring Zack Greinke, the Houston Astros are clear favorites to win the 2019 World Series.
  • Sean Zerillo breaks down the moves that were made and evaluates the futures market.

If you remember, Josh Donaldson and Andrew McCutchen were traded to the Indians and Yankees respectively on August 31 last season.
