It’s tough to say whether a quiet non-waiver trade deadline is an indication of a busy waiver trade deadline, but Thursday gave us our first taste of the potential for big names on the move as the Rangers put a waiver claim in for Alex Rios. That’s not to say that Rios is definitely going to be dealt, but right now the Ranger shave about two days of exclusive negotiating rights to see if they can work out a deal with the White Sox for the veteran outfielder. The two teams were apparently talking before the non-waiver trade deadline, but nothing came to fruition. Perhaps now that Nelson Cruz has been suspended, the Rangers will be willing to up their offer and make it a little more worthwhile.
It has come to that point of the season where it is time to dump or get off of the pot. It’s time to decide what it is that will get you into championship competition and go all out for it. But what if you are gun-shy about pulling the trigger on that big trade that you know you need to make? Todd Zola is here to tell his story on trading in fantasy baseball and to provide you with strategies to keep in mind when making those moves.
