Regardless of your city or favorite team, trade speculation is always a solid topic at the water cooler.
And much like every other year, 2011 is no different when it comes to how exciting the trade deadline can be.
That being said, some of these players may surprise you. Others, well, maybe not so much.
In any event, you'll see that there are some struggling and others dominating.
The reason? It's all a part of the grand scheme of things when it comes to trading so you can make a run at the Fall Classic.
So, follow me into the abyss that is MLB trade speculation (it's safe I swear).
