MLB trade rumors: No, the Tigers are not trading for Chris Archer

Sorry, Charlie. It's not happening. In the frenzy of speculation and rumors that occur every July, most buying teams' fanbases obsess over a select few players their favorite club might be acquiring. This year, the most sought-after assets are starting pitchers. In the recent past, this has also been the case, with many buying clubs looking for rotation reinforcements. In 2014, David Price and Jon Lester, both No. 1 starters, were dealt. In 2015, Price was dealt again, along with fellow aces Johnny Cueto and Cole Hamels. This year, however, the buyers are more numerous than ever and the...

Texas Rangers interested in Reds pitcher Anthony DeSclafani

The Reds' resident ace is being considered by a team with a deep farm system. Nice. The market for available pitchers at the moment isn't exactly in the best of shape.  This is nothing akin to last year, when each of Johnny Cueto, David Price, and Cole Hamels were on the move, yet the thirst for impact pitchers this season seems just as high among teams with eyes on the postseason. That's why it shouldn't really come as a a surprise to see Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani pop up in trade discussions as we barrel towards the August 1st trade deadline.  On Friday morning, that's...

Cole Hamels misses days when Phillies were winners

SAN DIEGO - Cole Hamels never doubted he would return to the postseason. Stay healthy, the former Phillies ace said, and the opportunity could arise. He just did not expect it so soon with the Texas Rangers last season, mere months after the Phillies traded him.

Home Run Derby & All-Star Game Thread, July 11-12

Seager's going to ruin his swing in the Home Run Derby, and he should have been traded for Cole Hamels anyway! Kershaw's injury is worse than reported and he's going to sign with the Rangers once his contract is up! This is Kenley's last year and the Giants are going to make him an offer he can't refuse! Enjoy the All-Star festivities, folks!

Twins 5, Rangers 4: Twins win the series

The Twins knocked Cole Hamels out early, and hung on to win 5-4. Kyle Gibson had another pretty good start today. In 5 out of the 7 innings he pitched in, he only faced 3 batters. The first inning didn't start out great, as two pitches in Shin-Soo (Foo) Choo hit a solo home run. A walk and a single followed, but he got Adrian Beltre to hit into a double play, and Prince Fielder to line out to end the threat. In the 3rd inning, Brian Dozier hit a 2 run triple, and Robbie Grossman followed that up with a single to give the Twins a 3-1 advantage. The top of the 5th started badly for Gibson,...
