FLB Chat Wrap: July 31

Tristan H. Cockcroft: (9:59 AM ET ) Six hours to go until the trade deadline, and I'm sure there are plenty of fantasy baseball questions abound! Let's get right to 'em...

Blair, (Dublin, CA): I need a sub for Weeks bad. I need to keep my run to the playoffs. Please rank these temp subs. Freel, Barfield, Kendrick, and Punto. Thanks a ton!

Tristan H. Cockcroft: (10:01 AM ET ) Both Josh Barfield and Ryan Freel have performed nicely of late, and I'd rank them in that order, then Howie Kendrick and then Nick Punto. Barfield and Freel seem most realistic; they even offer similar strong categories (AVG, SB) to Weeks.
