David Price is popular Trade Deadline target

m.mlb.com — David Price makes every single contender better. There's some risk, because he's a pending free agent, and that's the only one. On the other hand, what's a World Series worth to a franchise? Any general manager would happily weaken his farm system in exchange for a championship.

Three outfielder trades may be key for Angels

m.mlb.com — HOUSTON -- Sometimes, the best moves are the small ones. Really good teams make them all the time. Taken one by one, they don't raise eyebrows. Seen as part of a larger picture, they can significantly position a team for a stretch run.

Hall of Fame induction could not be better

m.mlb.com — COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- They spoke of family and friends, and of coaches and mentors and teammates. They spoke of executives and managers and scouts who believed in them. They spoke of unexpected turns, of new teams that meant new opportunities. They saluted the men who sat behind them -- the greats of the game who paved their way.

Hall weekend a brilliant blur for four inductees

m.mlb.com — "Yeah, they had me sing the other night," Craig Biggio said. He chose Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." "Don't ask me why I picked it," he said. "I have no idea." As initiations go, this is about as mild as it gets. "Whatever these guys ask me to do is fine," Biggio said.

Will Hamels get traded? 5 possible destination

m.mlb.com — We again ask ourselves a familiar question: Will the Phillies trade Cole Hamels? We've wrestled with this one for a couple of years now. The Phillies clearly have wrestled with it, too. As the Phillies retool the franchise, Hamels would be a nearly perfect fit for more than a few teams. At 31, he's one of baseball's most reliable starting pitchers.

Kazmir is perfect for Houston Astros

m.mlb.com — The Houston Astros just got better -- way better. Nice going, Jeff Luhnow. Very nice. If any team makes a more significant acquisition than left-hander Scott Kazmir, it'll have to be a bombshell. Yes, this is that significant. Why? Well, there's the practical impact.

5 best trade fits for Oakland's Scott Kazmir

m.mlb.com — In the last two months, only one American League team has won more games than the Oakland Athletics. As Oakland's general manager Billy Beane considers whether to buy or sell, this surely is the thing that bothers him the most.

Yankees Astros good trade fits for Mike Leake

m.mlb.com — Mike Leake understands how these things work, and so he knows his time with the Reds is almost certainly coming to a close. He was a first-round Draft pick in 2009 who jumped directly to the Major Leagues the next year without a single game in the Minors.

Handful of teams a trade from winning it all

m.mlb.com — If you're the Cardinals, Royals, Pirates or Angels, there's no urgency to do a single thing. You've got a good deal going. On the other hand, all four of them would like to: (a) solidify themselves for the stretch run; and (b) be more October-ready.
