July 31 is the best day of the year. For starters, it is my birthday. More importantly, however, since 1986, July 31 has been the Major League Baseball trade deadline. After this date, in order to complete a trade, the player (or players) involved must clear waivers, a complicated system that I will not explain here, mainly because I do not understand how it works, either. For the most part, July 31 is the last day to make any key additions to your team for the stretch run of August and September.

The Reds season has often swung depending on the result of road series against San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego (not to mention Arizona and Colorado).
