The wee hours have arrived, and I’m still feeling all right. I’m expecting the feeling of “crash” any moment, as a yawn or two have slipped out. This is approximately five hours later than I’m typically up.
I am currently blogging – here, on Facebook, and on Twitter (hash tag #BNBlogathon for those who want to jump into the fray themselves) – for 30 hours straight, until slightly past MLB’s July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. I’ll be doing recaps on the process throughout the day, but you’ll also see normal posting (Bullets, Series Preview, Pre-Gamin’, EBS), as well as an uptick in rumor/trade posts.
Total Posts So Far:
21 (and a WHOLE bunch of updates).
News and Rumors Since the Last Recap:
Most Interesting Tidbit Since the Last Recap:
I wonder how far the Cubs and Giants got into discussions before the front office spoke to Soriano, and he said thanks-but-no-thanks on heading to San Francisco? And I *really* wonder what the return would have been. Ah, well.
Current Thoughts About the Chicago Cubs’ Trade Deadline Strategy/Execution:
I’m happy with the two deals so far, and I’m happy to learn that the Cubs are still aggressively working to move valuable pieces like Matt Garza.
Current Beverage/Stimulant of Choice:
I started chugging water a little while ago to try and stave off caffeine-induced headaches.
Strangest Thought Passing Through My Mind:
How awesome are the ‘Breaking Bad’ episodes I’m about to watch going to be?
