What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Not really planning this as being any sort of discussion, but more of a forum where you can add tweets about the trade deadline.
Jason ParksI wouldnt be surprised if the #Rangers were paying close attention to the Colby Rasmus market. #Cards have always loved LHP Martin Perez
Jim Bowden: It only takes one team to pay the price to get Beltran...it only takes one Erlin, one Minor, one Wheeler, one Cosart, One Perez, One Ranaudo
Joel Sherman: Exec interested in Beltran said #Mets price today is different than 2 weeks ago, not shooting for sky as much. Exec said: (cont) "They're not ready to settle, but are ready to think more ultimately about what return they actually will get.
The Giants are showing strong interest in Upton, tweets SI's Jon Heyman.
Could it be they have begun to realize Beltran isn't in their future plans?
Joel Sherman: Feeling from execs is #Rockies want to find trade for Jimenez #Yankees, #Redsox #Reds calling. Surprise is #Bluejays kicked tires (cont)
SI_JonHeyman Jon Heymanstrong belief now best beltran offer may come from #rangers. 1 hangup: he prefers nl. atl, sf, milw still in, #tradedeadline
Buster Olney: "Sources: Mets making progress in their negotiations with Rangers and Giants in Carlos Beltran talks. Atlanta still involved."
Buster OlneySources: Indians walked away from their Beltran talks convinced that the player's agent, Scott Boras, is controlling the process.
Ken DavidoffAlan Nero, Felix Hernandez's agent, says, "There's a better chance (Felix) will be struck by lightning" than traded this week. #Mariners
Jon Heyman@SI_JonHeyman Jon HeymanBeltran controls the show due to no-trade. No shocker, #sfgiants look favored. #rangers tried hard.
Ken Rosenthal@Ken_Rosenthal Ken RosenthalSource: Beltran NOT going to #Rangers. #SFGiants presumed front-runner. #tradedeadline #MLB
Well I guess that about does it.
Jon Heyman#rangers focused on relief. talking about heath bell and others. apparently no match on ubaldo. #tradedeadline
Buster Olney: The pace has quickened in the Padres' talks about relievers Heath Bell and Mike Adams.
Jim Bowden says that ESPN.com's Jim Bowden tweets that the next big deal could be the Rangers acquiring Bell for a package centered around left-hander Robert Erlin. So we're going to get a rent a reliever for a top prospect. I'd much rather trade Erlin for Adams
the Rangers’ focus will not change. They are talking to the Padres about closer Heath Bell and setup man Mike Adams, sources say. They also are interested in Athletics closer Andrew Bailey and setup man Grant Balfour, though Bailey is a distinct longshot.Rosenthal
