As the title suggests, this week, Mike and Gino will talk about the huge sports trades of the week, as well as the big opening weekends at Del Mar and Saratoga with Scott Shapiro! Manny Machado's name has been involved in trade rumors for parts of two seasons - well, the Baltimore Orioles finally pulled the trigger - prior to the MLB trade deadline, by sending him to the Dodgers for prospects. What does this mean for the Dodgers in 2018 and beyond? Gino, who bleeds Dodger blue, will fill us in! Kawhi Leonard, formerly of the Spurs, also has also been a marquee trade piece for much of the year. Now that he's been dealt to the Raptors, who got the best of that deal? We will discuss! Horse racing fans will tell you that the summer has finally arrived when the prestigious Del Mar and Saratoga meets start. Now that the openers are finally here, we will talk with Brisnet and Twin Spires insider, Scott Shapiro about this weekend's big races, and his thoughts about these summer meets!
