Here’s what y’all weirdos said.

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Oakland Athletics Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

Jerry Dipoto cannot be stopped. Despite the passing of the trade deadline, he continued his wheeling and dealing on Sunday by acquiring Yonder Alonso from the A’s for Boog Powell as well as making a multi-player minor league exchange with the Rays.

Alonso, who made the 2017 All-Star team, garnered a lot of attention. Most people were impressed by Jerry’s ability to get him at that price. Others were skeptical. Here’s what everyone thinks of the moves.

To start off, here are the official trade announcements.

The flurry of moves caught some of us off guard.

But most people were pretty pleased with the returns.

Some were a little uneasy about Alonso given his recent struggles.

...or based on what the M’s gave up.

And it simply wouldn’t be the internet without some jokes.

That’s the basic gist of it. The M’s have a shiny new first basemen and a few pieces of depth. What did you think about the two post-deadline waiver deals?
