The Stokke On podcast is back to close out the week with it's Friday edition, that was recorded on August 10. Tommy Stokke is joined by co-host Chris Schubert.

This edition opens with a discussion of Jon Heyman's latest edition of Inside Baseball, which has an increased focus on the Houston Astros and their activity (or inactivity) at the trade deadline. They failed to land any of the big name starting pitchers (Yu Darvish, Sonny Gray) or the big reliever (Zach Britton), and the players weren't happy with not making a big splash. What deals could they have made? What should they have done? Will not making any trades ruin their chances come October? Is it a big deal that the players aren't happy?

After that, the guys share their thoughts on all 30 teams, drawing direct inspiration from Heyman's Inside Baseball notes for all 30 teams.
