Per Rotoworld, the Blue Jays made some calls on Gordon Beckham earlier this year.

Maybe he wanted to see the famous Horseshoe Curve.

No reason to trade Beckham. He plays good D at 2nd. We need more good D up the middle.

Seattle was mentioned as a potential buyer, maybe they're looking for pieces for next year, like the sox did with Freddy Garcia.

Oh, well - Crain going nowhere. Shut down.

"The decision was made after Crain skipped a scheduled throwing session on Thursday. He plans to ramp things up slowly, so look for his absence to stretch well into August. The veteran right-hander likely would have been a nice trade chip for Chicago if he was healthy, but that can obviously be ruled out at this point."

Was this already mentioned? Rios invoked his ntc so he wouldn't have to be a Yankee. Saw it on BleacherReport, but Joel Sherman tweeted it.

And Rios denied it vehemently. Said he would welcome going there if that was the case.

Rios isn't mentally strong enough to be a Yankee...

I have trouble believing that account. I mean, it has less followers than I do.

I'm having a hard time defending Rios lately, even if that Sherman tweet was untrue. I haven't seen where he supposedly denied it, though, either.

He's the most talented OF'er out there that's available at a reasonable price, it's too bad his Ayn Rand-iness has come out during the trade deadline. I've still grown to like him over the years he's been a WS, and would like to see him succeed in a Pirates uni (maybe Alexei, too) if we got a good return, and because I want to see the Pirates make the damn post season already.

@ JermaineDye05, is that hard to believe because it favors the Sox or the other way around?

I think it's a good trade for the Cardinals...they give up a back-up first baseman and 2 C prospects, who figure as relievers.

I wonder if it's a good deal for the Sox. I think not, really. I'll do Adams for Alexei, though.

I'd love to have Matt Adams, the big boy can rake -- reminds me of Billy Butler. But the other two bullpen guys? No thanks. Personally, I'd rather take a chance on a couple of single A starters, B- or C+ grade types that might not ever make it, than MLB ready bullpen arms.
