Extra Innings: 07/31/07

Marz’s thoughts:  Trading Deadline is over at 4 ET. As a kid, I used to love the trading deadline…especially when my team was in contention for the pennant. It wasn’t a good feeling when my team was out of contention because you were going to lose a great player. The Phillies traded one of their best pitchers of all-time in Curt Schilling. You think you are going to get great players in return and that wasn’t the case. The same thing happened with names like Scott Rolen, Placido Polanco and Darren Daulton.
P.S. –  Griffey told me one time that the Mariners were trying to trade me for a bag of balls and the other team declined!

Cuch’s thoughts:  Predictions = Davies to KC for Dotel…Jermaine Dye goes NOWHERE…Eric Gagne to one of the New York teams…Jack Wilson to Detroit…Mike Piazza to the Angels…Bronson Arroyo to Seattle or Atlanta…
P.S. – Bonds will go 0-2 with a walk versus Penny, A-Rod will hit #500 on Wednesday versus John Danks and Tom Glavine will wait 1 more turn for win #300

Marz – Polanco should be playing third for the Phils right now and not Helms/Dobbs. But what a great feeling when we got Dykstra for Juan Samuel! Bill
