"It's, 'What have you done for me lately?' And it's understandable. Everybody wants their players to have good years and to live up to it. Sometimes you don't have a good year.

How Do August Waiver Trades Work?

Every year there is a ton of hype surrounding the trade deadline, but the big misconception is that teams can no longer make trades after 4:00 PM on July 31st.  Teams can, in fact, make trades after the July 31st deadline.  It’s just not as simple.
