Some of these are pretty bad. The Dunn one wouldn't happen, especially right now with how terrible Ian has pitched and the issues Tabata is having at the moment. Why would the Rockies deal the only guy who can close games for well, nothing? M's deal Balentein after they make room for him and really have no one who can take his place in the OF? Also if it's anything the Cards have enough of, it's OF's (Rasmus says hi). Ben Francisco has an impressive bat, this is news to me and why do the Nationals need more OF's? Last but not least the Phillies trade one of their best bats for another 3B and a speedy util OF, um not while they are in the play off hunt. Also that makes it so the Sox have no room for Quentin ... really I don't get it.

I honestly don't get any of the "trades that need to happen". Basically none of these fit for both sides.

The tribe can't deal Francisco, not the way they are hitting. What the Tribe should do is sign Bonds though.

The Reds wont let Dunn walk. And if a team bases Kennedy's performance on one month, then they're clearly idiots.

Yea, Kearns and Wily Mo are realllll talented. Big keepers, let me tell ya.

It surprises me that the post date on this was today... because most of these look like they were written before the season.

Dunn for Kennedy/Tabata? The Yankees need more pitching not less. If anybody has an excess of quality young starters to give some more time to, it's the Reds.

Fuentes to the Tigers? The Rockies on their way down? How about the Tigers? The only brightspot on the Tigers right now has been their young bullpen. Sure, Fuentes is more established, but between Rapada and Seay, the Tigers have plenty of lefty relievers who have held their own so far this season. Giving up Bazardo/Thomas doesn't seem like too bad of a deal, but the Tigers need some quality starts, not more lefties to bring out of the bullpen in the fifth inning.

The Nats trade Rausch? They're kidding right....? If Cordero's arm troubles are as bad as they say, the Nats will gladly pay Rausch the closer-money he's going to be looking for after this season. Besides, don't the Indians have a bullpen full of guys they're already trying to fit into the closer role? Now they're going to bring in another one for two-thirds of a season and either give him a huge contract (shutting out Betancourt and Kobayashi) or let him leave and start the closer-carousel over again next year?

I know why would the Nats trade Rauch at this point. These trades really don't "need" to be made, and some of them are pointless.

I could see the Rockies trading Fuentes, but I don't think it will be to Detroit.

Why do the Yankees need Adam Dunn? There offense is fine, why would they give an OF prospect with a lot of potential and one of there starting pitchers. I think Kennedy is overrated, but they need him to pitch well this year.

Blogs suck.

Tell me about it. Trade makes zero sense.
