Cole Hamels (Photo by Drew Hallowell/Getty Images) The July 31st major league baseball trade deadline is looming and teams will be deciding in the coming weeks if they are buyers or sellers. Will the Toronto Blue Jays pull the plug on their seemingly sinking ship as they continue to fall farther out of contention in the absolutely brutal world of the AL East? Will the Detroit Tigers try to inject some life into their surprisingly clunky 2012 campaign? What about the Texas Rangers? Their roster is loaded, but also has some holes that could be plugged with a big trade, say Cole Hamels or Francisco Liriano. The Dodgers were spurned by Carlos Lee, but I have a feeling that might work out in their best interest. Below I’ve listed some of the players that could be moved and teams that might be interested.
