FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE BREAKING NEWS: ASTROS ACQUIRE CARLOS GOMEZ AND MIKE FIERS FROM BREWERS

Just a day after it appeared as if he was heading to the New York Mets in a trade, the Houston Astros stepped up and acquired outfielder Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers from the Milwaukee Brewers for prospects.  The Mets reportedly pulled out of the Gomez deal over money and not issues with his health and the Astros quickly swooped in to net the speedy outfielder and Fiers to help the rotation. 

Analysis:  Wow did the Mets screw this one up and they deserve to get destroyed by it.  The Astros came out smelling like roses here as Gomez and Fiers join Scott Kazmir in a nice haul for the AL West leaders.  As far as fantasy baseball is concerned, Gomez is an outfielder 1 no matter where he is while Fiers is nothing but an SP 5 at the very best and maybe not even that going to the American League.
