  1. Philly's intentional vomiter gets jail time

    Jul 30, 2010, 2:02 PM EST

    His first night in the joint, the Intentional Vomiter cost me two packs of cigarettes. He never made a sound.

  2. HBT Daily: Oswalt, Braves-Red and Yankees-Rays

    Jul 30, 2010, 1:28 PM EST

    In which I try to convince myself that the Phillies are no better with Oswalt. I don’t do a very good job of it.

  3. Report: Edwin Jackson has been traded to the White Sox

    Jul 30, 2010, 12:57 PM EST

    Tim Brown from Yahoo! just tweeted that Edwin Jackson was just told that he was traded to the White Sox. In court that would be inadmissible hearsay.  In trade rumor land it’s basically gold. My bestest buddy Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are getting starter Daniel Hudson and prospect David Holmberg in return. No…

  4. How you know the trade deadline has gone crazy

    Jul 30, 2010, 12:29 PM EST

    A rare glimpse into the silliness of following the trade deadline on Twitter.

  5. The Yankees are reportedly "in heavy" on Adam Dunn

    Jul 30, 2010, 11:59 AM EST

    You know it’s trade deadline season when I don’t even have the time to make up some tasty bit of innuendo out of a headline like that!  Anyway, the rumor: Ken Rosenthal talks to a “rival executive” who says that the Yankees are still really wanting Adam Dunn, and that their chatter in recent days…

  6. HBT's Position-by-position trade deadline overview

    Jul 30, 2010, 11:31 AM EST

    For your trade deadline obsessing pleasure: links to breakdowns of all of the available — or merely arguably available — position player talent at the deadline.

  7. Cowley: Kenny Williams has "something big cooking"

    Jul 30, 2010, 10:57 AM EST

    The Sun Times’ Joe Cowley says we should all hold our horses on the rumored Edwin Jackson to the White Sox deal: Hold off on the Jackson trade folks, KW has something big cooking and if he gets it done Jackson trade is off. Maybe it’s a play for Dunn directly?  Prince Fielder? You’d think…

  8. Bryce Harper's Facebook page is "knarley"

    Jul 30, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    Inside the social networking mind of a 17 year-old soon-to-be multi-millionaire.

  9. Five teams that need to make a deal

    Jul 30, 2010, 9:59 AM EST

    Everyone can get better at the deadline. But who needs it the most?

  10. Are Mets fans justified in booing K-Rod?

    Jul 30, 2010, 9:28 AM EST

    Howard Megdal takes a look at Mets fan’ relationship with their expensive closer: Francisco Rodriguez has held up his end of the bargain with the New York Mets and their fans. He’s been a good closer, by any reasonable measure: the Mets have called on him again and again to finish off the other guys,…

  11. The Dodgers and Cubs are talking Ted Lilly

    Jul 30, 2010, 9:03 AM EST

    Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi are reporting that the Dodgers are talking to the Cubs about a trade for Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot. The Dodgers have been connected with just about every pitcher on a “the Dodgers have inquired” basis, but this one may actually have some legs to it. Especially if what…

  12. What they're saying about the Roy Oswalt trade

    Jul 30, 2010, 8:05 AM EST

    As always, I think Charlie Manuel says it best.

  13. The White Sox could have Edwin Jackson this morning — will they flip him for Dunn?

    Jul 30, 2010, 6:06 AM EST

    Ken Rosenthal apparently doesn’t sleep this time of year, and he reported early this morning that the White Sox were in “serious discussions” with the Diamondbacks regarding an Edwin Jackson for Daniel Hudson trade.  A few minutes ago Joe Cowley tweeted that the deal could go down as soon as this morning. The deal would…

  14. And That Happened: Thursday's Scores and Highlights

    Jul 30, 2010, 5:42 AM EST

    Lack of hustle from Jorge Cantu: he totally should have pulled the “two games for two different teams on the same day” trick.

  15. Meet the guy who wore the LeBron shirt to the Tribe game last night

    Jul 29, 2010, 6:27 PM EST

    Drew passed along word of the glutton for punishment who wore the LeBron James Miami Heat game to the Indians game last night.  Turns out my friend Peter over at Cleveland Frowns — who was watching the game from the Home Run Deck at Progressive Field — talked to and photographed the guy last night.…

  16. So, what does Roy Oswalt really do for the Phiilies?

    Jul 29, 2010, 5:16 PM EST

    We know Roy Oswalt makes the Phillies better. That’s a no-brainer. But how much better? Better enough to send them surging past the Braves and into the postseason?  To answer that question, let’s look at some Random Royness: Oswalt in Citizens Bank Park:  Oswalt has thrived in Citizens Bank Park, going 4-0 with a 2.60…

  17. The Jorge Cantu-to-the-Rangers deal is just about done

    Jul 29, 2010, 4:57 PM EST

    The Jorge Cantu deal mentioned earlier is rounding into shape: Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers and Marlins have reached agreement on the players who will change teams. Apart from Cantu, of course, which I hope is obvious. The Marlins will get Double-A right-handers Evan Reed and Omar Poveda. Reed, 24, has posted a 1.76…

  18. The White Sox are out of the mix on Adam Dunn

    Jul 29, 2010, 4:28 PM EST

    That’s what Buster Olney says, passing along what he says the White Sox are “saying internally.”  Which begs the question as to how he heard it, but hey, that’s how things work this time of the season. Olney says that the teams most likely to do a deal for Dunn could be the Yankees or…

  19. White Sox pitching coach compares Strasburg to Mark Prior, Kerry Wood

    Jul 29, 2010, 3:58 PM EST

    White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper was on Sirius XM this morning, and the subject of Stephen Strasburg moving to the disabled list came up.  Here’s Cooper, making every Nationals fan in the country faint: “Strasburg does something that I call an upside down arm action.  Listen, I’m not wishing this guy bad by any…

  20. DONE DEAL: Oswalt goes to Philadelphia for Happ, two prospects

    Jul 29, 2010, 3:11 PM EST

    A major coup for the Phillies: Roy Oswalt is coming to town.

  21. UPDATE: The Phillies are sending Anthony Gose And Jonathan Villar to Houston in the Oswalt deal

    Jul 29, 2010, 2:59 PM EST

    UPDATE:  Forget Vance Worley: now it’s being widely reported the second prospect in the day is one Jonathan VIllar.  Villar is a 19 year-old shortstop prospect currently hitting .272/.332/.358 in the Sally League.  Unless there’s a misprint on his Baseball-Reference.com page, he has [gulp] 42 errors this season.  So he’s got that going for him.…

  22. Marlins, Rangers close on a Jorge Cantu deal

    Jul 29, 2010, 2:53 PM EST

    The Rangers and Marlins are getting closer on a deal for Jorge Cantu.  Talks were going on yesterday, but Jayson Stark reported that the Rangers wanted Florida to pick up most of Cantu’s remaining salary.  Today USA Today’s Bob Nightengale reports that the Marlins will do just that. Cantu started the season with a bunch…

  23. This is why the Orioles are awful

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:59 PM EST

    From Buster Olney’s latest column: Other teams that have asked the Orioles about the availability of some of their players are getting the vibe that Baltimore is greatly concerned about stripping their roster to the point that they are concerned about being even worse down the stretch than they have been in the first four…

  24. HBT Daily: Podsednik, A-Rod and the Giants

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:29 PM EST

    Tiffany and I talk about a team I declared dead that, in hindsight, was only mostly dead.

  25. OK, no one knows anything about the Oswalt deal

    Jul 29, 2010, 11:58 AM EST

    Ahhhh. It hadn’t felt like deadline time until just this very moment. Within the past few minutes two writers with Philly sources — Jayson Stark and Todd Zolecki — are saying that Phillies 1B prospect Jonathan Singleton is in the Oswalt deal. Another — Ken Rosenthal, who may not be as well-sourced in Philly but…
