Mets again stand pat at trade deadline

Bartolo Colon #40 SPNew York Mets 2014 STATS GM26 W12 L11 BB22 K132 ERA4.01 MIAMI -- The deadline to trade a player and have him eligible for the acquiring team's postseason roster passed at midnight and the Mets remained intact, as had been expected. Elsewhere, the Oakland Athletics acquired Adam Dunn and from the Chicago White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays acquired John Mayberry Jr. from the Philadelphia Phillies. Teams signaled they were unwilling to absorb Bartolo Colon's full $11 million salary for 2015 when he went unclaimed while on waivers last week.

Justin Masterson: The St. Louis Cardinals' lost bet

Every trade is a gamble. The Cardinals appear to have lost the bet they made with the Masterson-Ramsey trade. Every Major League Baseball trade is a gamble of sorts based on need. Each team is betting that the return it gets for a player or players will be worth what its giving up.

It looks like Mozeliak has lost that bet. When the Cardinals selected Ramsey in the first round of the 2012...

Giants call up five, including Chris Dominguez and Hunter Strickland

Juan Perez, Guillermo Quiroz, and Mike Kickham also recalled. Active rosters expand on Monday, and the Giants announced their first wave of call-ups. Right-handed reliever Hunter Strickland is joining the bullpen along with left-hander Mike Kickham. Old friends Juan Perez and Guillermo Quiroz are coming up as well, and they'll be joined by surprise mystery-box addition Chris Dominguez. The first four weren't much of a surprise. Dominguez, though, is something of a stunner. The 27-year-old is a dinger-masher who plays all over the diamond, including shortstop. Players fitting that...
