The big day has come and gone.
While July 31 was paramount to Jack Zduriencik, Ruben Amaro, and Billy Beane, for all us wannabe GMs, a day of at least equal importance came on Friday, when all ESPN standard fantasy leagues reached the Trade Deadline.
Hopefully, those of you still in contention managed to snag a couple key additions to make a final push before the playoffs start in a couple of weeks. But if you didn’t, the only option left is the free agent pool.

If you play in a 10 team league, marginal upgrades should still be readily available (for example, in one of my leagues Rajai Davis and Mark Teixeira are still unclaimed).
But if you play in a larger league, or if those guys just don’t catch your fancy, who on the periphery is worth a quick add, and who won’t lead you to September triumph?
Let’s take a look, focusing on the Mariners and their two opponents for the week ahead: Toronto and Detroit.
