How many trades has there been this year? Has to be the most ever.
And it seems these were the busiest 2 teams on that front.

Of all the things people accuse Chris Jones of, sitting pat will never be one of them. Take away EE trades/transactions & we probably have a pretty normal year.

Another trade with the Als. Have been a bunch between these 2. Looks like 2023 is here for Jones. He is stacking up on draft picks for next year which, apparently, is supposed to be a good one. Better hope so. I'm not sure he didn't give away too much, especially Lyons who has been a good young player by all accounts. :smiley:
