George Sherrill was traded from the Orioles to the Dodgers.  Sherrill will backup Broxton.  If you play in a league with Holds, by all means.  If you don’t, you can lose him.  Okay, that’s that.  Now for the interesting part, who closes for the Orioles?  Please, blog, may I have some more?

Rudy’s off on some far away exotic island (Manhattan) and asked me to wave my wand on the fantasy baseball roundtable.  This week it’s hosted by Patrick Cain of the Albany Times Union.  (I think the sun only comes in from the west in Albany, hence his eyeblack under only one eye.)  This week’s question:

Second Half Sleepers that should be available in more than 50% of mixed leagues.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

Ryan Garko was traded to the Aints for Scott Barnes, no relation to Priscilla.  Not sure why the Indians traded a cheap guy with 11 homers and a .285/.362/.464 line.  Maybe the Giants offered some trinkets to the Indians.  Besides his season line, Garko has been hot recently (.429 in his last seven games with two homers).  Please, blog, may I have some more?

This was covered a bit in the Chone Figgins blurb in Friday’s Buy/Sell, but it’s worth giving it its own post.  Fantasy baseball trading deadlines are right around the corner, time is slipping…slipping…slipping into the future and your fantasy baseball teams need to lose yesterday’s lunch or get off the pot.  Please, blog, may I have some more?
