With a flurry of trade action already occurring, there will be a number of teams that now feel the pressure to make a move before the 2012 MLB trade deadline.

While there are a number of teams interested in some of the top trade targets, they are not all great fits from the players' perspective. This is especially true for guys that are signed for longer than just this season.
