Gray, the top starting pitcher currently believed to be available on the trade market, worked six scoreless innings and didn’t allow a man past second base as the A’s opened the second half with a 5-0 win over the defending American League champions. Rajai Davis had a big night against his former team, with two hits, including a homer, and two runs, and Yonder Alonso, fresh off...

Mets trade rumors: The Mets are “open for business”

Oh my god, we’re having a fire... sale. Per Buster Olney, the Mets are discussing the very real possibility that they’ll be sellers at the deadline.

There’s still plenty of the season left to go, but with the Wild Card Game looking like even more of a pipe dream than taking the East from the Nationals,...
