    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:22 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence

    If the Giants make a trade before Wednesday’s 4:00 p.m. EDT deadline, it’s probably going to include lefty specialist Javier Lopez.

  16. Pirates, Orioles likely to pass on Justin Morneau

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    Justin Morneau

    It sure sounds like Justin Morneau is more likely to be dealt in August than before Wednesday’s deadline. According to John Perotto of the Beaver County Times, the Pirates have “next-to-zero” interest in Morneau as they weigh an upgrade at first base or in right field. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun is among those…

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

    That’s according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. The Rangers will consider just about anything as they attempt to improve before the deadline. That means Elvis Andrus. It means Joe Nathan.

  19. Orioles “actively pursuing” Mike Morse and Oliver Perez

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    The O’s could use a DH/corner bat and the Mariners have one. So this would make sense: Orioles are actively pursuing both Mike Morse and Oliver Perez of the #Mariners today, accdg to a source. Would like a combo deal. — Dan Connolly (@danconnollysun) July 31, 2013   As for Perez, the Orioles’ greatest strength…

    Worried about losing Nelson Cruz, much, Texas? Rangers have continued to ask about Encarnacion and Bautista, but still appears that Blue Jays won’t trade either one. — Danny Knobler (@DannyKnoblerCBS) July 31, 2013 This is more about the Rangers than the Blue Jays, of course. Even if the Jays aren’t willing to part with their…

    Jul 31, 2013, 12:36 PM EDT

However, they…

  22. The Astros have “standing offers” for Bud Norris

    Jul 31, 2013, 12:26 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Houston Astros

    Bud Norris makes no sense for an Astros team which seems laser-focused on turning veterans who won’t be part of the next winning Houston team into prospects. So this report from Brian T. Smith of the Chronicle should probably be read as “Bud Norris is going someplace today, we just don’t know where yet”: The…

    Jul 31, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Bobby Parnell

    For the second year in a row, the Mets are prepared to sit out the trade deadline, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, even as they seem well on their way to a fifth straight sub-.500 season.

    First of all sniffing is rude and it’s appalling that major league front offices dabble in such monkey business. But let’s move on. Here’s the latest deadline-day trade rumor from Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe: Pirates and Red Sox two of the teams sniffing on Padres reliever Luke Gregerson. — Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) July…
