The 2021 MLB regular season is more than halfway complete and we're now into the dog days of summer. The 60-game sprint was fun in its own way last year given the circumstances. Give me the full 162-game experience every day of the week though.

Throughout the season the CBS Sports MLB scribes will bring you a weekly roundtable breaking down, well, pretty much anything. The latest news, a historical question, thoughts about the future of baseball, all sorts of stuff. Last week we debated Max Scherzer's trade deadline landing spot. This week we're going to tackle teams that needed to do more at the deadline.

Which contender needed to do more at the trade deadline?

Matt Snyder: I know Chris Sale is coming back, but the Red Sox's playoff rotation really leaves a lot to be desired at this point. You've got Sale coming off Tommy John surgery, Nathan Eovaldi and his extensive injury history figures to be the number two. Then there's Eduardo Rodriguez, Martin Pérez, Nick Pivetta and Garrett Richards from which to choose a three and four.
