Because we're now past the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline, I guessed that there would be a lot of speculation about trading players in August.  I also guess that not everyone knows exactly how August trades work either.  


Jeff Todd from MLBtraderumors.com has a great summary of how August trades work.  I just thought that I'd share it with TD because it does such a good job of explaining how the waiver process works.


You can fine the article here.


You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I'm going to move this to the main forum. There's going to be a lot of talk about August trades in the next month.

On Thursday night's Twins Hangouts podcast, Jeremy did a really good job of explaining this as well.
