    Get the Yankees involved in this deal and we can do another blockbuster! Rosenthal: The Detroit Tigers have shown interest in Arizona Diamondbacks infielders Stephen Drew and Ryan Roberts, major-league sources told FOXSports.com … It’s not clear how advanced the talks are, but sources say there has been dialogue between the clubs on scenarios involving one…

    Jul 17, 2012, 12:20 AM EDT

    Cliff Pennington

    With Cliff Pennington continue to hover around the Mendoza Line, the A’s are hunting for a shortstop, FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports. The A’s are winners of nine of their last 10 games and are now 46-43 for the season, putting themselves right in the mix for a wild card spot. Rosenthal lists Toronto’s Yunel Escobar…

    Trade rumors are swirling around Justin Upton and his agent, Larry Reynolds, is upset about what he feels are anonymous attacks being made against the Diamondbacks outfielder through the media. Reynolds told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that trade rumors “are part of the business” and something Upton understands, but “what I don’t like are…

  4. Justin Upton can block trades to the Yankees, Red Sox, Indians and Cubs

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    I didn’t know this, but apparently Justin Upton has a limited no-trade clause.  And there are four teams on it, reports Ken Rosenthal: the Yankees, the Red Sox, the Cubs and … the Indians. That’s interesting. I get the first three. Big media markets with big, oftentimes hostile media members. But Cleveland? Man, all I…

  5. Heyman: the Yankees have talked to Philly about Shane Victorino

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies  v Los Angeles Dodgers

    While most of us assume that the Yankees are all about the pitching at the trade deadline, Jon Heyman tells us that isn’t so: They’ve talked to the Phillies about Shane Victorino and the Diamondbacks about Justin Upton, but Upton is a major long shot for them and right now they see the price tag…

  6. So who’s available at the trade deadline?

    Jul 16, 2012, 9:18 AM EDT

    Justin Upton

    The non-waiver trade deadline is coming. July 31, as usual. After a slow beginning to crazy season due to so many teams being in contention or erroneously believing so, the rumblings are getting louder. It’s great fun, yes? Over the next couple of weeks, we will obviously be writing individual posts for each of the…

  7. HBT Weekend Wrap

    grilling

    I stopped doing these for some reason. Sorta forgot about them. But it seemed like a lot happened this weekend, so for those of you with lives that don’t entail them being tied to the Internet all weekend, here’s what you missed: Bill James doubles down on the Joe Paterno defense. It’s like watching a…

  8. The D’Backs have told Justin Upton they might trade him

    Jul 15, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    It’s for real: Arizona may be moving Justin Upton. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic on Saturday that he’s spoken with the 24-year-old outfielder about the trade rumors that have been swirling and admitted that there’s some legitimacy behind them. “I listen on everybody,” said Towers. “We’re in the…

    Marvin Miller

    Arguably the best guy at the most important position in the richest, most successful sports league in America just signed a new deal today: Drew Brees’s deal is done … The deal includes $40 million in the first year and a guaranteed $60 million in the first three years of the contract. That’s the biggest guarantee…

    all-star gala full

    HardballTalk’s Drew Silva is filing regular stories from this year’s MLB All-Star festivities in KC. Part One. Part Two. Part Three. Part Four. Part Five. When I picked up my press packet Saturday from the will call window next to Kauffman Stadium’s Gate C, it included an invitation to something called the “2012 MLB All-Star Gala” — to be held in…

  11. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…

  12. Prince Fielder wins his second Home Run Derby crown

    Prince Fielder Getty

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…

  13. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Jul 9, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  14. Bryce Harper replaces Giancarlo Stanton in All-Star Game

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper missed out when the original NL roster was announced, again on the Final Vote and again as the first two NL All-Stars went down, but he will go to Kansas City after all. He was chosen as the injured Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement on the NL roster Saturday, making him the youngest position player…

  15. The Diamondbacks could listen to offers for Justin Upton

    Jul 6, 2012, 8:39 PM EDT

    Justin Upton Getty

    Here’s an interesting one. According to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, the Diamondbacks would consider trade offers for Justin Upton if they fall out of playoff contention. The Diamondbacks will enter play this evening at 39-43, seven games back in the National League West and 5 1/2 games back in the Wild…

  16. All-Star starter Dan Uggla now hitting seventh for Braves

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Dan Uggla

    There’s been a lot of hostility directed Tony La Russa’s way for all of the NL All-Star snubs this week. Really, though, it’s the fans as a whole that made things more difficult than they needed to be by voting Dan Uggla, Rafael Furcal and Pablo Sandoval into the starting lineup. The Braves tonight dropped…

  17. 2012 midseason awards: NL Cy Young

    Jul 5, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    It was easy coming up with pitcher snubs from the NL All-Star team because there are a whole bunch of NL pitchers with great numbers right now. One does stand out above the rest, but there’s an excellent field of Cy Young candidates to choose from at the midway point. Here’s the top 15, according…

  18. Justin Upton on being booed at home: “I don’t care anything what the fans think of me”

    Jul 5, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Justin Upton

    Both last season and this season Diamondbacks fans have booed Justin Upton at Chase Field when he’s in a slump, with last night’s booing being particularly loud after he went 0-for-5 in a loss to the Padres. Asked afterward what getting booed by his own fans feels like, the 24-year-old right fielder said: To be…

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Phillies 9, Mets 2: Cliff Lee stood to lose yet another one, as he and the Phillies were down 2-0 entering the seventh, but three runs in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth innings saved his bacon. First win of the year for Lee. Marlins 7, Brewers 6: On Tuesday Milwaukee beat Miami in…

  20. 2012 midseason awards: NL Rookie of the Year

    Jul 4, 2012, 6:47 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    If the NL is going to narrow the talent gap with the AL in the coming years, it doesn’t really show up here. Sure, there’s a likely superstar playing well in Bryce Harper, but the AL can seemingly cancel him out with Mike Trout, who is playing a whole lot better. Beyond Harper, it’s a…

  21. Yu Darvish, David Freese lead “Final Vote” balloting

    Yu Darvish

    With one day remaining in the “Final Vote” contest for All-Star spots Rangers starter Yu Darvish leads the AL balloting and Cardinals third baseman David Freese leads the NL balloting. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones had been leading in the NL, but yesterday he was removed from the “Final Vote” ballot after being named the…

    stay_classy

    Bryce Harper and Chipper Jones are pitted against each other in the “Final Vote” contest for an All-Star spot, with most people assuming that the Nationals phenom will win. Harper said Sunday that he’d vote for Jones because “I think a Hall of Famer should be able to go to the All-Star game his last…

  23. Yasmani Grandal continued his home run streak last night

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:51 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Yasmani Grandal’s debut on Saturday was historic, hitting home runs from both sides of the plate for his first two major league hits. His Monday was pretty good too. Grandal came up in the seventh after going 0 for 3 in his first three at bats. But then he hit a homer to left off Mike…

    Jul 3, 2012, 1:13 AM EDT

    Cameron Maybin

    Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin took Arizona’s Trevor Cahill way out of Chase Field on Monday night, hitting a 485-foot homer to left-center. ESPN Stats & Info gives it a one-foot edge over Nelson Cruz‘s homer on June 3 and four feet on Travis Hafner‘s blast on April 15. The homer was just Maybin’s fourth…

    Brewers

    When Carlos Gomez scored to give the Brewers a 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday, it was the first time since 1993 that a game ended on a play with two errors. Here’s the video: And this is one of the things about errors: the game-ending miscues here were charged to catcher Miguel Montero…
