An experiment in endurance draws to a close. And by “endurance,” I don’t mean me blogging for 24 straight hours. I mean enduring the embarrassingly lame Cubs’ trade deadline.
Month: July 2011
A quick look at some of the deals completed today, which necessarily doesn’t include the Cubs. Because they’ve already got all the pieces for a 2012 World Series run. Clearly.

News and rumors from around the rest of the league as we approach today’s non-waiver trade deadline.
Castro though Holliday was too far from the base, and tried to spike Castro. Mike Quade didn’t care for the slide either.
The third update on 24 straight hours of blogging up to the trade deadline. Bonus: my harrowing journey for free coffee.
And it sounds like it’s straight out of Shakespeare.
Derrek Lee has bounced around over the last two years, and his production has fallen off. But that didn’t stop the Pirates from pulling the trigger.
The second update on 24 straight hours of blogging up to the trade deadline.
Worse, it’s not because they can’t find a taker. It’s because they’re refusing to move him.
It should have been called interference, and worse, it really could have injured Starlin Castro.
Not the New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox, but the Cleveland Indians. Must be nice and enjoyable for their fans. Paying attention, Mr. Ricketts?
What’s happening around baseball, and how it potentially affects the Chicago Cubs.
