The final two days of any type of trading for the 2012 MLB season are now upon us.

The waiver trade deadline is officially at midnight ET on Friday night/Saturday morning, and heading into Thursday morning, only 10 trades have been completed in the month of August.

Of course, the deal between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox was by far the biggest August trade ever pulled off in MLB history, but other than that, activity has been light.

That could change over the next two days, and Bleacher Report will keep you up to date on all of the latest rumors, rumblings, grumblings and actual transactions right up until the clock strikes 12 on Friday night.
