It's trading season in Major League Baseball. With a little more than two weeks to go until the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, the Cubs will certainly be involved in numerous rumors. But manager Dale Sveum said he didn't think they would impact his club, which closed the first half by winning nine of its last 13 games.
It's a whole new world as the non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches, but maybe not for the reasons you think. A number of changes have taken place since last year in the way that baseball does business. Most prominent, for good reason, is the addition of a second Wild Card in each league. But when it comes to trade talks, a less publicized change may have more impact.
This could be one of those trading seasons when there's more talk than action. Actually, that's the way it usually is. Still, this year is even more confusing, with eight National League teams separated by a half-game and 11 American League teams within 2 1/2 games of each other.
Owning a healthy lead in the American League East, the Yankees certainly have thoughts of preparing for the playoffs in mind, so they figure to be interested shoppers as the Trade Deadline approaches.
There's still time before the July 31 Non-Waiver Trade Deadline, and Oakland has made a case to be buyers after winning 21 of its last 34 contests to land at the .500 mark and just 2 1/2 games back of the second Wild Card slot.
While it appears that the Phillies and Brewers will be on the outside looking in when it comes to the postseason, it won't be easy for them to take on the role as sellers at the Trade Deadline.

In assessing their roster, the Marlins don't consider personnel as being the problem. The issue, in the eyes of the organization, is performance. Coming out of the All-Star break, the team will enter a critical stretch, opening on Friday with the first of four games against the National League East-leading Washington Nationals.
Will the Orioles make a big splash at the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline? Perhaps more importantly, should they?
While it is possible the Angels will add a piece this month before the Trade Deadline, it's more likely they'll stand pat.
Now that the All-Star Game is in the Royals' immediate past, the immediate future holds another event of intense interest: the Trade Deadline of July 31.
Indians manager Manny Acta wants the front office to be aggressive at the July 31 Trade Deadline, hopefully making a move for a pitcher or right-handed bat.
Typically, having the right pieces to fill immediate needs at the Trade Deadline comes down to having prospects to offer potential trade partners. While building a farm system is essential for long-term success, it's also important so that contending teams have trading chips to use at this time of year.
GM Jack Zduriencik might move younger players if he thinks it might help Seattle's struggling offense.
