Open Thread: Post All Trade Rumors and News Here Until the 24-Hour Trade Deadline Blogathon Begins


As you know, I am foolishly attempting to blog for 24 hours straight leading up to (and slightly past) the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. There’s almost always a flurry of rumors and moves – both by the Cubs and around the rest of MLB – so hopefully it won’t be without action.

In anticipation of staying up for 24 straight hours (and at an awkward time, I might add), I’m going to try and get some shut-eye now. You’ll probably not see me back until about 6pm CST, which is when the Trade Deadline Blogathon begins (and about when today’s Cubs/Cards game is ending).

In the interim, should any juicy rumors or big news break, please post it here in the comments, and, by all means, discuss it to the limits of your heart’s desire.


And, if you’re looking to kill a few seconds, please go HERE and nominated Bleacher Nation for “Best Team-Specific Site” if you are so inclined (and any other category you deem merited). It’s incredibly helpful if you do. Feel free to say that you did it in the thread, and when I return, I will shower you with glorious Internet love (that sounds much worse than I intended).

See you in a few hours.
