Trade Coverage 10am-11am

Hey there and welcome to my 2011 Trade Deadline Coverage. A quick walk through on how I’ll be running this today…

I’ll have a separate entry on each hour of the day up until the 3:00 p.m. deadline to keep things easier for you to navigate, instead of potentially 40 posts to sort through, or one huge one to try to locate a specific trade.

I will have the names of every player and team involved in a trade during that hour tagged in each post, so if you are looking from the home page you can see right away what players were moved and click on the corresponding article to see the trade details.

The trades will be bolded within the post for easier viewing.

Follow me on Twitter @robbenneian for the breaking trade coverage, as well as checking back here frequently for more detailed analysis.
