As they climb up our rankings, second-place teams are showing it's way too early to count them out in any race.
From players and their families to travel directors, real estate agents and clubhouse attendants, here's how trade deadline swaps actually affect people's lives -- both on and off the field.
Before hearing some snippets from Sunday's Hall of Fame speeches (48:59), Buster and Tim Kurkjian discuss next year's ballot, Matt Harvey's fall from grace and how the trade deadline hinges on the Giants (12:14). Plus, an interview with Freddie Freeman (35:39) and "Cap Talk" with Todd Radom (39:15).

Madison Bumgarner pitched nine superb innings but had nothing to show for it aside from an ovation of sheer appreciation, and the San Francisco Giants rallied past the New York Mets on Donovan Solano's 16th-inning RBI single for a 3-2 win Thursday night.
Donovan Solano had four hits, including a tie-breaking home run leading off the sixth inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Rockies 11-8 on Wednesday to complete a four-game series sweep, their first at Colorado in nearly eight years.
