Open Thread: Post All Trade Rumors and News Here Until the 30-Hour Trade Deadline Blogathon Begins (10am CT)

Chicago Cubs Rumors, Meta

As you know, I am foolishly attempting to blog for 30 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. You know, like last year. (Hopefully you still enjoyed.)


In anticipation of staying up for 30 straight hours, I’m about to hit the hay for as long as I can. Ideally, I’ll sleep until just before the Blogathon begins at 10am CT, but something in your body changes when you turn 23. Suddenly, you can’t sleep in as late as you once could. Hell, in college, the only time I was ever up before 10am was for class (when I went). Times change, and now I have to, like, make an effort to sleep past 7am.

That is all to say, you aren’t going to see me around until late tomorrow morning. And then the 30-hour Trade Deadline Blogathon begins (hash tag #BNBlogathon if you want to join in on Twitter). It’s pretty much just like regular BN, but on PEDs. And for 30 hours straight. Hope you enjoy.

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


See you in a bit.
