As the calendar gets closer to August http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-shin-soo-choo-jersey , the trade deadline looms over MLB and will continue to do so through July 31.Contending teams like the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox have already made significant moves, but no general manager can ever feel confident that enough has been done. That won't be determined until the last out of the World Series is completed.There are non-contending teams that are clearly in a sell mode as the season hits the far turn on MLB's version of the racetrack. The Toronto Blue Jays may have started the season with hopes of becoming a wild-card team, but they have been a streaky team with more downturns than upswings this season.As a result, they are willing to move several pitchers. Toronto would like to trade starter J.A. Happ and relievers Tyler Clippard and John Axford, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.Happ made the American League All-Star team, but he has been somewhat inconsistent. He has a 10-6 record with a 4.18 earned-run average and 130 strikeouts in 114.0 innings.The 33-year-old Clippard is a well-traveled veteran, and he has a 4-3 record with a 3.54 ERA and seven saves in 13 opportunities. Axford has pitched 48.0 innings with a 4-1 record and a 4.69 ERA.The Chicago Cubs are looking to add to their pitching staff, and Chicago baseball insider Bruce Levine of radio station WSCR reported that they are looking at Chris Archer of the Tampa Bay Rays, Danny Duffy of the Kansas City Royals and Dylan Bundy of the Baltimore Orioles.The Cubs also had interest in reliever Zach Britton of the Orioles before he was traded Tuesday to the New York Yankees.Levine reported that Chicago has turned its attention to American League hurlers because that league has more non-contending teams, and that means a greater volume of players may be available.The Cubs don't necessarily want to make a deal involving key players on their 25-man roster Prince Fielder Jersey , and that may be the reason they were unable to complete deals for Britton or former New York Mets reliever Jeurys Familia, who was traded to the Oakland A's.The Boston Red Sox made a big deal Wednesday when they acquired pitcher Nathan Eovaldi from the Tampa Bay Rays for Jalen Beeks, per Ken Rosenthal of Fox and The Athletic.The Red Sox have suffered some injuries to their starting staff, as Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are both on the disabled list. The right-handed Eovaldi also gives the Red Sox more balance in their starting staff since Chris Sale, David Price and Rodriguez are left-handed.Eovaldi has a 3-4 record with a 4.26 ERA with 48 strikeouts and just eight walks in 57.0 innings."We feel very comfortable with him," manager Alex Cora said, per Zachary Silver of MLB.com. "We feel he's going to be good for us."The Red Sox may also be looking at Texas Rangers pitcher Jake Diekman, as well as pitchers Zach Duke and Fernando Rodney of the Minnesota Twins, per Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.There are five more days to go before the deadline, and quite a bit of talking and perhaps several deals will be completed before the end of July. DENVER (AP) — Christian Yelich feels like he’s not really locked in — no more than usual, anyway.“Just taking it day by day http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-adrian-beltre-jersey ,” the Milwaukee outfielder said.He and the Brewers are certainly dialed in, though. They have won 10 straight and seized a 2-0 lead against Colorado in the NL Division Series heading into Game 3 on Sunday in what could be a cool and damp afternoon in Denver.The Rockies hope a return to Coors Field can ignite their frigid bats. The team hit .154 over the opening two games and went 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.A rest day couldn’t have come at a better time after a week that included travel to Los Angeles and Chicago, on to Milwaukee and then back home.“Clear the mind a little bit,” Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado said Saturday. “I’m ready to go. We’ll be ready to go. It’s no problem.”Colorado’s scuffle at the plate isn’t exactly a new phenomenon. The Rockies hit .287 at Coors Field this season, one of their lowest averages in franchise history. Their .256 overall mark remains a team low.“No doubt there needs to be adjustments made,” Rockies shortstop Trevor Story said. “But it’s a good feeling to be back home, where we feel really comfortable hitting.”Story is 0 for 8 with five strikeouts in the series. He resembles the Story of last season, when he struck out 191 times, rather than this All-Star version that hit .291 with 37 homers.His swing in the eighth inning Friday epitomized the Rockies difficulty in timing Brewers pitchers, striking out on a breaking pitch from Jeremy Jeffress that hit the dirt way before the plate.“Story’s a good player. He understands,” Arenado said. “He clears his mind pretty quickly.”Game 3 features a matchup of contrasting pitchers. Milwaukee’s Wade Miley gets by more with sneakiness than speed. The left-hander is 3-1 with a 4.76 ERA in five career games at Coors Field.Colorado will hand the ball to German Marquez Nolan Ryan Jersey , a right-hander who throws heat and had a team-record 230 strikeouts. He got the call over lefty Kyle Freeland, another one of Colorado’s up-and-coming young arms who also happens to be a Denver native and would pitch Monday — if there is a Monday.“They have a potent lineup, but I’m going to execute my plan, which is executing my pitches, hitting my target, and give our team a chance to win games,” Marquez said.Asked whether he would like to close the series out as quickly as possible, Brewers manager Craig Counsell just smiled.“Would we prefer to win it in three games? Of course,” Counsell said. “But they have something to say about that.”Counsell appreciates that anyone can step into the spotlight at any moment. Like in Game 2 when it was the turn of 38-year-old catcher Erik Kratz, who had two RBIs.“If you’re in the lineup, you get four shots. Everybody is going to get four shots http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-rougned-odor-jersey ,” Counsell said. “So last night, Erik was the one that cashed in on a really big opportunity.“Sometimes you’ve got to let these games unfold, and that’s how you know how to play them, and that’s what we’ll continue to do.”One factor: The weather. It’s supposed to be around 60 on Sunday with a chance of rain.“It’s not ideal. It wouldn’t be anybody’s first choice,” said Yelich, an NL MVP candidate who is 2 for 5 in the series with a homer and four walks. “They have to pitch in it, they have to hit in it. We have to pitch in it, we have to hit in it. You have to find a way to win.”Being back at home, the Rockies are trying to keep everything as normal as ever. Especially Arenado, who’s sticking to his usual routine: Eggs and bacon in the morning with oatmeal and two cups of coffee, head to the park and go straight to the cage to hone his swing.“We’ve won three games in a row before Cole Hamels Jersey ,” said Arenado, whose team captured six of seven in their final homestand to force a tiebreaking game 163 in Los Angeles for an NL West title the Dodgers wound up winning. “But it’s not an easy task with the Brewers.”The energized crowd should help. It’s the first home game for the Rockies since 2009.“Everywhere we’ve played, it’s been super loud, and everybody hates us,” Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon said. “So now it’ll be super loud and everybody loves us. I hope.”
