Throwing it around

It’s mid-week here at Diamond Hoggers headquarters. The trade deadline is less than a week away. One week from right now we’ll know if Adam Dunn is staying a Cincinnati Red, or if we’ll have to root against them for trading away our buddy. We’ll know if the Tribe went out and got bullpen help. We’ll have ESPN telling us that the Phillies bolstered their chances for a late season playoff run the most by acquiring Jon Garland and 2 junk bullpen guys. For today, we’ll just give some baseball links and wait.
