Part of the problem with having so many teams still in contention is that there's no definitive line between the buyers and sellers.
Right now, we can pretty safely say that the Twins, Mets, Nationals, Astros, Cubs, Pirates and Padres are all sellers. What the other 23 teams are going to do is anyone's guess.
You have a team like the Royals, who at 23-29 probably aren't going to the postseason this year, but with a $38.2 million payroll could they have the flexibility to add some high-cost players?
The Indians, at 31-19, are in a position to go for it this year, but are they better off retooling and coming back stronger next year?
Would the Athletics be the team to beat if they could add someone like David Wright to their lineup?
We should know more of the answers to these questions as the trade deadline draws nearer, but with so many more buyers than sellers you can expect a really hectic flurry of activity. Or maybe no trades at all. Who knows.
