07/08 Open Rosterbation/Trade Deadline Thread

Well, the trade deadline's approaching and the Mariners are surefire buyers for the first time in some years. That's very exciting! Or terrifying! You decide! Either way, when contending, it's a lot more tempting to think about who could replace Dustin Ackley, or Endy Chavez, or any number of Mariners. You may be tempted to post your suggestions all over the place, causing threads to go wildly off-topic! That's bad. Our writers put in a ton of work, we should generally discuss the topic at hand that they've put their time into.

Rosterbation is generally frowned upon here. It's really quite annoying, and people have terrible concepts of how trades actually work. Here, it will be tolerated, if that's okay with the mods. That being said, please refrain from intentionally being stupid. This thread isn't about throwing the standards of LL out the window. It's meant to be a central place to discuss trades (hypothetical or real), rumors (pertaining to the M's or otherwise), and other assorted trade deadline topics so they don't dominate front page threads. Proper grammar, capitalization and punctuation are still required. Thoughtful and reasonable posts are still required.

If posters are rosterbating openly in other threads, please kindly link them here. Some topics for discussion:

1) Rockies hitters (Morneau, Stubbs, Cuddyer): Yes or no? Will you ever trust hitters coming from super-friendly environments?

2) What bounceback candidates do you like? I really wanted Brandon McCarthy. I could still be interested in Jake Peavy. Chase Headley as an OF? AJ Burnett?

3) Any prospects you absolutely would not let go? Any others you'd like to sell on right now?
