A few words about the trade deadline

With nine days left until the trade deadline, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that this year’s deadline is going to be a lot like last year’s. In the National League, the top eight teams are within four games of each other (not four games of a playoff spot; four games of each other) and in […]

Report says Mariners showing interest in Pirates outfielder Starling Marte

SEATTLE — The Mariners are showing interest in Pittsburgh outfielder Starling Marte, according to a report in the Beaver County (Pa.) Times.  The report also said it’s “unclear if the Pirates are willing to part with their left fielder after signing him to a five-year, $31-million contract in spring training.” The Pirates have a surplus of outfielders — they recently optioned Jose Tabata to Triple-A Indianapolis. The report also says they are interested in right-hander pitcher Taijuan Walker and two Tacoma infielders, Nick Franklin and Chris Taylor. Marte, 25, would, potentially,...

Rapid Reaction: Pirates 12, Dodgers 7

PITTSBURGH -- Josh Beckett was the brightest surprise of the first half for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but his story took an ominous turn when he started feeling hip pain in June and went into the All-Star break on the disabled list. Tuesday, he returned and didn't look like the pitcher with the fourth-best ERA in the National League in a 12-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Combined with some miserable work from the bullpen, the Dodgers' needs entering the trade deadline appear clearer and clearer: add quality to the rotation and bullpen.

MLB Trade Rumors: Mariners interested in Starling Marte

MLB Trade Rumors: Mariners interested in Starling Marte

The Mariners covet a right-handed bat on a team-friendly deal and almost certainly won't get him. The Mariners seem to be casting a wide net in their search for a right-handed bat, but targeting Starling Marte is about as ambitious as it gets. The Pirates are in the thick of the Wild Card race in the National League at just two games back, and while they do have an excess of outfielders, only Andrew McCutchen has been good at the plate this year. Gregory Polanco, their 22 year-old crown jewel, is off to a slow start in his rookie season, and previously rumored M's target Jose Tabata is now...
