    Still time to trade

    A late deal goes down in advance of the Aug. 31 trade deadline. SiriusXM (Flowers) sends IF Grant Green to Baseball HQ (Adler) for 3B Will Middlebrooks.

    Miracle healing powers

    Although everyone thought he was out for the season, it looks like Avisail Garcia is actually going to play again in the majors. This is one of those weird instances where a team has already reclaimed his salary in FAAB.

    There is no provision in the LABR constitution for what happens if a player out for the season actually comes back, so if and when Garcia is activated by the White Sox, he will be eligible for bidding as a free agent. 

    The winning bid on him for Week 20 has been nullified and the $1 FAAB refunded.

    CC is 86'd

    NFBC (Ambrosius/Childs) gets $15 back for CC Sabathia being out for the season.

    The FAAB bank is now closed.

    FAAB reclaim deadine

    As most of you know, the deadline for getting FAAB money back for players out for the season is this transaction period (July 13). 

    Since in the past it has been the Monday of the All-Star break (when there are no games), I'll entertain any last minute pleas on Monday.

    This is also the day CC Sabathia is getting an MRI so just be aware NFBC is seeking to get that large amount of cash back. I don't know of any other pending claims, but check your rosters just to be sure.
