Who's Most Likely to be Traded at Deadline?

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Anyone who watches our website and others is, undoubtedly seeing the same names being floated as trade bait leading up to the deadline two weeks from today. While the Cubs and Brewers have made big moves, others are holding off, trying to maximize whatever leverage they have. That is true for the buyers and the sellers. Here are the names that keep getting mentioned as most likely to be traded: Mark Teixeira, AJ Burnett, Joe Blanton, Milton Bradley, Matt Holliday, Brian Fuentes, Erik Bedard, Xavier Nady, Raul Ibanez. It will be an interesting two weeks as the positioning and posturing pick up.

Update: Blanton was moved today for 3 minor league prospects. See post above.

I hope the Cards get Burnett. They need to make a move to show their loyal fans they care about this season.

I really doubt the Reds can catch up to the Cubs, Brewers or Cards.

If they were in the NL West, then do it. But unless they play like .700 ball and take every series in the second half, I dont think they have a chance to get a playoff spot.

Xavier Nady to the Rays for Edwin Jackson?
