MLB Trade Deadline as an Analogy for Life

August 3, 2022

The MLB Trade Deadline wrapped up Tuesday afternoon and my head is still spinning.  So much activity that I am just now starting to come back down to Earth.

Juan Soto and the San Diego Padres

We break down the big trades AJ Preller and the Padres made for Juan Soto, Josh Bell, Brandon Drury, and Josh Hader. The Soto/Bell deal may go down as the biggest trade in MLB history. Plus, we take a look at the Eric Hosmer situation and how that ultimately impacted Luke Voit.

MLB Trade Deadline Life Lessons

I was doing some thinking and realized the MLB Trade Deadline is much more than simply teams making deals.  It’s about organizations getting better.  It’s about teams making an honest self-evaluation, and then re-allocating assets and re-prioritizing initiatives. It’s about calculated risk taking and knowing when to go all in.  It’s also about profitability, brand building, franchise valuation, and Legacy. So many great life lessons here about how we can take charge of our own lives and make disciplined self-improvement decisions.

Lee Hacksaw Hamilton Podcast

Plus, I re-share my story about connecting with legendary sports talk host and NFL play-by-play caller Lee Hacksaw Hamilton. A podcast episode from 3 years ago leads to an email, a breakfast with Hacksaw at IHOP, and now helping Hacksaw launch his own podcast. Tune in Thursdays at 2pm on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter for the livestream. Or download “Lee Hacksaw Hamilton” wherever you get your podcasts.
