The 2010 MLB Trade Deadline is just two weeks away. Rumors have abounded about deals involving everyone from established stars to this season’s breakouts to low-key role players.

In anticipation of the ratcheting up of the trade buzz, Bleacher Report’s Featured Columnists took a poll asking where each of 27 oft-discussed names will be playing come August 1st.

I picked out the 15 players who had the most interesting predictions to be featured in this slideshow. For each player, I have included the full results of where we thought he’d go, and a different writer submitted an explanation of why he or she thinks the trade would work out.

Before you eviscerate anyone for suggesting Texas pursue another starting pitcher, please keep in mind that the poll was conducted before the Rangers’ shocking acquisition of Cliff Lee.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and enjoy the results!

Note: I sent this survey only to the Featured Columnists who have been active in previous polls. If you are a new FC or you have changed your mind about wanting to participate, send me a message and I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop for next time!
