One of the most exciting times during the long MLB season is the few weeks prior to the trade deadline. There are thousands of phone calls between all general managers as some teams are trying to make a push to the postseason while others are trying to build up for the future.
Many times the big name players that are traded are those that have one year left in their contracts or are just too expensive for their team's to keep if they are struggling.
These eight guys are all players that I have seen people talk about being traded on here or on various other sites prior to the season (and some during it), and I think that because of their situation or the team's situation that they won't be traded this year.
A lot can change between now and August 1st, but for right now these guys are safe.
