Even Charlie can't believe some of these deals!

As we enter into the month of July, baseball's trade rumor mill kicks into overdrive. By this point in the season, many teams have distinguished themselves as either buyers or sellers. Whether it be from poor production or an injury, many contending teams have been able to determine an area of need.
