BEST TRADE EVER:  In case you missed the email, “John McDonald trades Jeremy Moore of AAA Salt Lake City to Jeremy Moore (of Salt Lake City) for John McDonald.”

TRADE DEADLINE: This year’s ASFBL trading deadline will be the lineup deadline on Tuesday, August 2.  All trades after that must go through waivers.

COMMENTS: Cleveland burst from the pack with a 4-0 record to get an early 2nd-half jump on the AL central…The Twins did the same thing from the back of the pack, announcing that they may have something to say about the race before it’s all over…Atlanta inched closer in the NL East…The Giants posted the only 4-0 record in the NL and are threatening to run away with both the NL West and the home field advantage…With Houston +23 WOR at the break, it’s time to ask about the all-time record.  Adam Symonds’ mark is +45 WOR, accomplished with the 2004 Arizona team, so Andy needs to match his first-half WOR pace to have a shot.  It will be fun to watch…However, +22.5 WOR is the lowest figure to ever finish below 1st in the WOR standings, so he looks good there…Berkman and Bautista each have a shot at 60 HR in the ASFBL…Three of the top 8 RBI guys play for Boston…The ASFBL has 8 pitchers with 12 wins; the MLB has 4…On the other hand, the ASFBL only has 5 guys with 20 saves so far, and the MLB has 17…
