Seems ****** up to the player to let them know he's available...
Why put them on waivers? Why not put it out there to the league that he's available?
If someone says they want him... then place him on waivers...
Does that not make sense or is there some mlb rule that doesn't allow trade talks after the deadline unless a player is on waivers?
Because after the Non-waiver Trade Deadline, all trades up until the final deadline have to have the players passing through waivers.
So teams do that to abide by the rules of MLB, but also by placing them on waivers it allows them to see what other teams have interest.

On another note, Nicklas Backstrom is amazingly good.
Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.
So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
Strasburg has what we call an "inverted W".. It basically putting insane amounts of strain and pressure on your shoulders and elbow. He has pretty similar mechanics to Prior, Woods, Chris Carpenter, Smoltz etc..
Clemens, Maddux, Ryan etc.. Had perfect Mechanics. They didnt put the strain on their arms and had long careers because of it(even a guy on the juice is not going to stay healthy with mechanics like I mentioned above).
Maddux probably had the best mechanics ever.. If you have kids, or are a kid yourself, model your motion like his. A modern day pitcher with top notch mechanics that will last probably 10 years.. Cliff Lee.
From the article above:
Hope this helps.
I was just going to talk about this. If you look at alot of the pitchers who have spent time on the 60 day, and have had serious injuries look at their mechanics and i think you will see alot of that "Inverted W" or "equal opposites" its too bad.....but it happens.

I wouldn't be sir prized if he passed McCoy on the depth chart. I think he might have a better arm and accurate arm then him from the highlights I thought. He also got some wheels too help us prepare for QB's as Wilson , RG3 and other runners etc.
braves better get the pennant this year. phillies are too close though.
two games is not too close with the way we are playing. we're playing like ****. heartless almost. we're too cocky for our own good, at the point where we think we can win without doing anything with the exception of Halladay and Oswalt. it's awful to watch. bad baseball.
as many of you may remember I am in a fantasy baseball keeper league. It is nearing the end of the season and unfortunately I am out of contention. However, I need some help in regards to who to keep. You keep 10 out of 20 players.
