Post Trade Deadline Rumor Extravaganza (Merged)

Postby Maris09 » Thu Jul 31, 2008 3:52 pm

How does the August trading work again?

Trying to figure out if it's ok to drop someone like Corpas if a Fuentes deal isn't made today, or if there would still be some chance that Fuentes get's moved at the end of August if the Rockies are out of it?

Players would have to clear waivers right? So an NL team could possible acquire a guy like Fuentes then?

Thanks!

After July 31st, everyone who is traded has to pass through waivers. Any team can claim them. If a player is claimed the team which put him on waivers can let the team who claimed him assume the rest of the contract, or they can pull him back and keep him. If a guy passes through waivers unclaimed he can be traded to anyone (for another guy who has cleared waivers).

No. If a guy passes through waivers without being claimed, he can be traded for money, other players, and/or prospects just like before the waiver deadline.

they had something about the waiver trading deadline on ESPNEWS.
when a player is placed on waivers, all the teams in that division get first shot to put in a claim. example- a player in the NL goes on waivers, all the teams in the NL worst to first get first shot to claim that player before worst to first in the AL.

there was something like.. once a player is put on waivers, teams that claim that player have 2 days to make a trade for that player. im guessing worst to first. i dont really remember much about this, but there was something said about a 2 day period once claiming a player off waivers.

So anyone think a guy like Fuentes could still end up being moved if the Rockies fall out of it by that Aug 30th deadline?

It's possible but teams will put a claim in and what's to say the offer will be better than what they could've gotten this week.

There is a great reference page on wikipedia that covers all sorts of MLB transaction stuff. Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_Leag ... ns#Waivers for the Wiavers portion.

No because teams will claim him to block others. The Rockies will then pull him back. It is very rare for guys to be traded off waivers because teams claim them.

August Waiver Wire Rumblings/Speculations/Deals

Postby RocketsDWM » Thu Jul 31, 2008 10:39 pm

The dealing is not over yet. Waiver wire deals will be happening next month. In this thread, post any "rumors", speculations, and completed trades. Here are a couple of "rumors" that have already been posted:

Andy MacPhail feels that the Orioles will actually be more active in August than in July. Jeff Zrebiec and Dan Connolly suggest that several players, including Kevin Millar, Jay Payton and Ramon Hernandez could be had in August. MacPhail also noted that while there "was a pretty high bar set" for teams asking about Brian Roberts, MacPhail made it clear that Roberts was not off-limits and suggested that a deal this winter is not out of the question.


Jim Bowden does not appear eager to trade Tim Redding, who according to Bill Ladson, is the Nat's only player of value that could be traded in August.


Brian Sabean is confident that he will be able to sneak some of his veteran players (Rich Aurilia, Omar Vizquel, Randy Winn, Bengie Molina, etc.) through waivers in the coming month for the purpose of making a trade. Chris Haft feels that the large number of teams remaining in contention will make that very difficult.
