Trade Deadline Blogathon: Hour 23

Chicago Cubs

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.

The sun indeed invigorated me slightly, though I would now describe myself as merely “tired.” Things should be getting rolling again quite soon.

Total Posts So Far:

27 (and a WHOLE bunch of updates).

News and Rumors Since the Last Recap:

Bob Nightengale says Alfonso Soriano has told the Cubs which teams to which he’ll accept a trade, and to which ones he won’t (for example, the Giants).

Most Interesting Tidbit Since the Last Recap:

Kevin Goldstein was on with Mully and Hanley this morning, and I’ll have a recap of that soon. He offered some interesting thoughts. But the mere fact of that is not particularly interesting to you, so you’ll just have to take my word on it for now.

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

No change from the last update. Phasers set to hopeful.

Current Beverage/Stimulant of Choice:

Wading back into Coke Zero, though I’ll probably have a coffee soon.

Strangest Thought Passing Through My Mind:

If you don’t sleep in a given night, are you really living two separate days for clothes-wearing purposes? That is to say, at what point do I become a disgusting pig for wearing the same clothes I wore “yesterday,” even though there’s no such thing as “yesterday” for me?

A Selection of #BNBlogathon Tweets:

Current Mood:

Just plain tired …
