As of Thursday afternoon, Ryan Dempster was still a Cub. And as far as the right-hander is concerned, the only thing on his mind is his next start, which is scheduled for Friday in St. Louis.
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin won't reveal whether he has decided to buy, sell or hold at the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, which looms less than two weeks away.
Wednesday was all about Carl Crawford. The rejuvenated Red Sox outfielder, fresh off the disabled list, is freshly on the non-waiver Trade Deadline radar.
It's getting closer and closer to crunch time for the Phillies and left-hander Cole Hamels.
Among the possible scenarios as the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline nears are the Padres shopping Chase Headley, the Nationals adding to their already strong rotation, the Royals reaching out to Matt Garza and the Mets doing whatever they can to shore up their struggling bullpen.
The Phillies could lose a different anchor before the end of the month if they can't reach an agreement on a contract extension with Cole Hamels and trade him to a contender for a package of prospects.
Ryan Dempster and Matt Garza were still in Cubs uniforms on Tuesday despite more rumors that the pitchers could be changing teams by the Trade Deadline. Cubs manager Dale Sveum has dealt with speculation before.
Rumors aside, the Mets have just one main concern in advance of the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline.
As the Tigers head into the final two weeks before the July 31 Trade Deadline, they might be picking up a valuable new piece to offer clubs -- a tradeable Draft pick.
We can easily get swept up in the swap talk this time of year, what with the scouts swarming the behind-home-plate seats at Cole Hamels' last start, the slew of speculation over what a bumped start means for Zack Greinke's trade value, the curiosity over what the D-backs are up to with Justin Upton, etc., etc., etc.
From now until the July 31 Deadline, we'll be checking in on the trade news around baseball, with help from MLB.com's reporters. The countdown is under way.
The Dodgers and Giants might try to acquire a shortstop before the Trade Deadline, and the Phillies might be willing to trade California native Jimmy Rollins. But it won't be easy.
Sell high at baseball's Trade Deadline? That's just common sense. The trouble, of course, is that ballplayers aren't stamped with an expiration date like a bottle of milk. There's no way of knowing exactly what distinguishes a guy who's just in a slump from one starting the downside of his career.
Peter Bourjos' name in the rumor mill has been a regular occurrence. The Angels are searching for pitching, and Bourjos, currently without an everyday role, is one of few chips who may bring back a quality arm, be it in the rotation or the bullpen.
When the Trade Deadline approaches, we spend a lot of time looking forward. The questions tend to be about how this player might help this team down the stretch or what this prospect could be in the future. Instead, let's take a look at the past for insight.
It's no secret the Dodgers are seeking help to improve the club, but manager Don Mattingly said he's not expecting a major move to simply happen overnight.
With the Trade Deadline two weeks away, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said trade rumors have been a point of discussion between his players in the clubhouse.
The Brewers have some regret in starting Zack Greinke on back-to-back days, especially because they sound like a team not seeking to trade its free agent-to-be ace.
The Phillies absolutely, positively have to do whatever it takes to re-sign ace left-hander Cole Hamels before he reaches the free-agent market at the end of the season. Unless, of course, they decide that they must use their biggest chip to begin looking toward the future before the Trade Deadline comes and goes.
Cole Hamels has found the mantel of staff ace on the Phillies suits him to a tee. The next two weeks, however, will determine whether Hamels stays in Philadelphia.
The month of July always pushes Brian Cashman's cell phone usage into overdrive -- in fact, he said that his battery was completely drained as he watched batting practice on Sunday morning, unable to make or receive any more calls for the moment.
