BoaB Well's Bells League: August Update

Trade dealine is past, a few weeks from September callups, and it's time for another update. Before looking at the standings, let's look at the teams who benefited from the trade deadline and who might get a boost from the September callups.

Trade Deadline Effects

ajfriedman: Domonic Brown will lose playing time, and Neftali Feliz might lose a couple of saves.

grantjg1: Doug Fister got out of Seattle, which might help or hurt him (Leaving the pitcher-friendly confines of Safeco Field).

doublej4725: Hunter Pence got out of baseball's other black hole, Houston.

jfcincotta: Mike Adams might get a little more work and opportunities in Texas.

jar75: Better ballpark, worse offense for Jimenez.

Robert L. Bishop: See comments for doublej4725, just substitute Michael Bourn for Pence.

k26dp: Tyler Colvin should get some more playing time with Fukudome in Cleveland.

September Callup

ajfriedman: Domonic Brown will get called up, but how much playing time he gets is questionable.

grantjg1: Lorenzo Cain might get a little playing time in Kansas City.

jar75: Has the potential to gain a lot with Jesus Montero, Mike Minor, and Matt Dominguez likely to make the callups.
