MLB Trade Deadline Thread

Figured it'd be nice to have a one stop shop for all the deadline deals.

Word is that the Rangers and Braves have agreed to a trade. Braves get Mark Teixeira and Ron Mahay, while the Rangers get Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Elvis Andrus, Matt Harrison, and another young minor league pitcher, likely Nestali Feliz.

The Rangers are also getting a ton of interest from Detroit, Boston, and the Yanks about Eric Gagne. Additionally, since the Braves deal appears to have gone through, the Rangers also plan to trade Gerald Laird and somebody else (a reliever, I think) to the Cubs for Felix Pie and a prospect.

Octavio Dotel is also likely to be on the move from Kansas City. Jermaine Dye and Jon Garland could be headed out of Chi-town. And many more rumors will pop up in the next 24 hours!

I wish the Angels had thrown in one more prospect for Tex. They were offering Kotchman, and their young lefthander Joe Saunders who is something like 4-1 with a 2.56 ERA so far this year, along with a third prospect.

The Rangers should also try to move Hank Blalock, and they are actively shopping Slammin' Sammy. Aki Otsuka can also be had, but since he and Hammerin' Hank are both on the DL, it is unlikely either will be moved by tomorrow.

EDIT: Dallas Morning News confirms trade. The DMN is also reporting that we might get Tommy Hanson instead of Neftali Perez.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia

That's a great pickup for TEX. He's gonna be a good catcher.

As for Houston, Anybody want Jason Jennings? He's yours for a bag of balls and a water boy...

Although Wigginton is cool, and now we could shop Ensberg

As for the Sox, what did we get for Iguchi? Whatever, in theory this prospect we have should be beastly, but we will see.

Any chance of Gagne coming to Houston?  Smile

I'm glad we got Tex.

But I'm also worried about giving up Salty and Elvis Andrus. Andrus is drawing comparisons to Jeter.

Hopefully we can get Tex signed to a long term eventually.

While Teixeira is a good pick up, I think the Braves are giving up way too many prospects in this deal. While we do need some help in the bullpen, something we get in Mahay, I'm getting a bad feeling if this trade goes down (ESPN is reporting the only hold up is the checking of some medical records. I'm assuming it's the Braves checking them since both Teixeira and Mahay have had stints in the DL in recent weeks.).

The Rangers are also checking on Harrison. He has had some arm problems the past year. Rangers aren't too concerned, just wanted to check on the MRI, etc.

I don't think Hendry is stupid enough to trade Pie for Laird. I'm pretty happy with what the Cubs have now, but I wouldn't mind picking up a lefty reliever. I really wanted Mahay, but someone like Damaso Marte would be good too.

Wonder if history is repeating itself when in 1993 the Braves picked up Fred McGriff, which sparked them to overtake the San Francisco Giants to win the NL West on the last day of the season, with both teams winning over 101 games.

The Phillies picked up Kyle Lohse from the Reds for Double A pitcher Matt Maloney. Lohse is 6-12 with a 4.58 ERA so far. Lohse could be a boost to the rotation, but he can be prone to giving up the longball, which is not a good thing for a pitcher going to the little league sized field in Philly. Not a bad pickup, though.

Look for Eric Gagne to be in a Red Sox uniform, although the Yankees are the other team in the bidding war for him.

With the recent DFA of Morgan Ensberg.........I"m hoping my Giants decide to make a move for him, just to replace the sloppy play that is Pedro Feliz.

The Braves, unless they can get an extension, gave up entirely too much for Teixeira IMO.

Sad that the Angels didn't get him, as he would have been a good addition and is much younger than Konerko. In the end, the Rangers wanted too much

and the Yanks about Eric Gagne.

With the way Rivera has played this year, one would have to question as to whether Gagne would take the closer role

Quoting Texan (Thread starter):

Octavio Dotel is also likely to be on the move from Kansas City

The question is, who would the Dodgers give up for him? I am hoping not any of their core guys (read: Andre Ethier) who are already in the majors. Perhaps the shortstop prospect they have down in the minors, who is playing behind one of the best in Furcal?

Actually, I am glad the Angels didn't give up what Texas wanted. As I saw it, Saunders was not the guy to give up anyway, as they need a lefty in that rotation, and he has played serious ball when given the opportunity. I personally think they should have given up on the Ervin Santana experiment and let him and Kotchman go, as I think Santana's raw stuff would have sold the Rangers better on that trade.

And he can play first, as he did in Atlanta because of McCann's presence

Actually, I think this is a good deal for Philly. What it allows them to do is shore up their 'pen with either Lohse himself or one of their current starters.

According to ESPN the Mets are close to a deal to acquire Twins second baseman Luis Castillo for AA catcher Drew Butera and Single-A outfielder Dustin Martin.

Not anything to do with the trade deadline but Perdo Martinez will make his first rehab start Wednesday for the St. Lucie Mets. Hopefully everything will go well and he will be back soon. Then the Mets will not have to worry about starting Mike Pelfrey or Jorge Sosa anymore!

Well, here is a new rumor being thrown around on MLB.com. Apparently the Angels may now be interested in Mike Piazza. The only thing I can think is that they are worried that Jeff Mathis is still not up to snuff offensively and that we may see Piazza crouching behind the plate again until Mike Napoli returns.

Interesting move, as the Twinkies definitely don't need a catcher. Then again, if this Martin is any good, the Twins could add some depth to their outfield.

It says to me that Atlanta is very serious about making a run, because they pretty much got the two best guys out there in Teixiera and Dotel. Also, with the way Wickman has screwed the pooch this year, I think Dotel has a chance to end up as the Fireman in Atlanta.

It's Wickman's job to lose atm, and, quite frankly, I think Dotel will get it and he'll do fine. He's in a market that doesn't have great media attention on baseball and as long as he doesn't have pressure on him he's fine.
