BN Trade Deadline Blogathon: Hour 12

Chicago Cubs Rumors, Meta

dusty sleeping blogathonI am currently blogging – here, on Facebook, and on Twitter (hash tag #BNBlogathon for those who want to jump into the fray themselves) – for 38 hours straight, until slightly past MLB’s July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, thanks to your generous donations to Make-A-Wish. I’ll be doing recaps on the process throughout the day, but you’ll also see normal posting (Bullets, news, Pre-Gamin’, EBS), as well as a significant uptick in rumor/trade posts.

Hope you enjoyed the Live Stream. I did. Previous recap here.

Total Posts So Far:


News and Rumors Since the Last Recap:

The Dodgers, Braves and Marlins completed their huge trade.

Most Interesting Tidbit Since the Last Recap:

Fun stuff.

Current Thoughts About the Chicago Cubs’ Trade Deadline Strategy/Execution:

Nothing new here. The Cubs are playing it extremely close to the vest, which isn’t exciting for us, but is probably best for them.

Current Beverage/Stimulant of Choice:

Strawberry Kiwi KickStart

Rally Bucket Status:

Encroaching on headache-inducing.

Strangest Thought Passing Through My Mind:

The Wife asked me to pick up some tights for her at a gym that will have them available only during a one hour window this evening when she, herself, will not be available to pick them up. So I’ve got to go do that with the bucket on my head.
