    One week until the trade deadline

    Fantasy Insiders (Carty) certainly got the message with a pair of deals this week.

    He sends SPs Lance Lynn and Edwin Jackson to Colton and the Wolfman for OF Jay Bruce and 2B Phil Gosselin. 

    Carty also trades OF Grady Sizemore to Mastersball (Michaels) for RP Dale Thayer.

    And to complete the hat trick, he trades SP Eric Stults To Rotowire (Van Riper) for RP Brad Ziegler.

    Dealin' like Derek

    Fantasy Insiders (Carty) trades SP Clayton Kershaw, SP Roberto Hernandez, and OF Jon Jay to Colton and the Wolfman for OF Carlos Gomez, SS Zack Cozart, and SP Tim Lincecum.

    Carty also sends RP Kenley Jansen to Inside Edge (Moyer) for OF Ben Revere.

    Add one more pickup

    Rotowire (Van Riper) gets Jarred Cosart for $77 FAAB. Snafu in the system -- and the fact that no one else bid on him -- makes this error easy to fix.

    Last-minute reclaims

    Fantasy Insiders (Carty) and Inside Edge (Moyer) get a few bucks back for the season-ending injuries to Jaime Garcia and Bronson Arroyo.

    The deadline to get FAAB back for your injured players is this coming Monday, July 13.

    Bidding on minor leaguers

    All you Dan Straily fans out there remember ... you can only pick up a player if he's on an active MLB roster. Since Straily was sent to the minors after the trade, he isn't available to be picked up until he returns to the majors. 

    Lenny's $9 bid has been refunded.
