    Trades coming fast and furious at the deadline.

    Colorado Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez confirms trade to Cleveland Indians for prospects - ESPN

    Red Sox close to deal for A's pitcher Rich Harden, source says - ESPN

    Indians give up a lot to get Jimenez, while the Bo Sox give up a declining prospect with no chance at playing time to get Harden.

    Has there been a more injured pitcher then Harden in MLB. If he could ever stay healthy he would be good. Unfortunately for him he is the Jess Settles of MLB.

    Who is going to trade for Soriano ... who doesn't need a below average outfielder that can't lay off the breaking ball.

    I believe the Cubs even said they would eat some of his huge contract and still no offers?

    From 13 or 14 - 1 at all star break last year and all star starter to washed up 1-7 pitcher traded for prospects. Simply amazing how fast someone can fall from grace.

    Pirates just got Derrek Lee from the Orioles for a single-A player outside of the Pirates Top 30 prospects.

    No Heath Bell trade yet is very weird.

    Re: Trades coming fast and furious at the deadline.

    I hope the Twins trade away someone and get some good minor league prospects. I think they are too far back, and with the Indians getting Jiminez and having three teams ahead of them does not help.

    Apparently the Boston-Rich Harden deal isn't going down anymore
