Where should Zack Greinke end up?

'Tis the season for deadline trades in Major League Baseball, and you know what that means.

Yup. It means 'tis also the season for baseball fans everywhere to wonder aloud, "Well, what if [Team X] traded [Player Y] to [Team Z] for [such and such and so and so]."

Admit it, you've probably already done this once today.

But hey, it's not just fans who are getting in on the fun. Dan Szymborski of Baseball Think Factory put together a list of five NL trades that must happen for ESPN.com earlier this week. Dave Cameron of FanGraphs followed suit by putting together a list of five AL trades that must happen.

Neither Szymborski nor Cameron shied away from throwing big names around in their hypothetical trade scenarios. They weren't afraid to be bold.

Well, three can play at that game. Here's my own rundown of 10 big trades that need to happen ahead of MLB's July 31 trade deadline. 

I look forward to hearing all of you tell me how nuts I am. Compliments are also welcome if you have them (not likely).
