Several readers have emailed me letting me know the Pittsburgh Post Gazett is reporting that the Pirates have "acquired starting pitcher Matt Morris from the San Francisco Giants for outfielder Rajai Davis and a player to be named later".
This must have been one of the last deals to be allowed as it wasn’t announced until well after the 3pm eastern deadline. MLB.com has more on the deal.
What a day for Boston sports fans! Not only did the Celtics land Kevin Garnett, but the AL East leading Boston Red Sox have acquired closer Eric Gagne from the Texas Rangers. According to ESPN.com "Boston sent left-hander Kason Gabbard and minor league outfielders David Murphy and Engel Beltre to the Rangers" for the once dominant closer. Gagne set the all time record converting 82 straight save opportunities for the Dodgers but three surgeries had all but ended his career before this year’s comeback performance. The Rangers did a great job of getting maximum value for their free-agent-to-be. Not only did they acquire three prospects for what is likely a rental by Boston, the Red Sox also are reportedly picking up 2.1 million of Gagne’s performance bonuses.

Various sources are reporting that the Braves have finalized a deal with the Royals for RP Octavio Dotel, sending SP Kyle Davies to Kansas City.
Dotel will be a very nice bullpen piece for the Braves, who are showing signs of an urgency to win now. We are not sure exactly how Bobby Cox will use him, but there are some theories that John Shuerholtz will now be willing to deal Bob Wickman and make Dotel the closer. If that does not happen then the Braves will have a formidable bullpen with Wickman, Rafael Soriano, and Dotel.
Davies is a 23 yr old pitcher who has been very inconsistent during his tenure with the Braves. Once touted as the best pitching prospect in the organization, Davies has struggled this year going 4-8 with a 5.76 ERA. Royals GM Dayton Moore has spent the last decade or so with the Braves, so he is very familiar with Davies and must feel that his best days are ahead of him.
As a Braves fan, I am sad to see Davies go because I know he has a ton of potential, but the bullpen was beginning to break down and now is aided by another big arm.
The St. Louis Cardinals are desperate for starting pitching, and it shows. ESPN.com is reporting that they "acquired right-hander Joel Pineiro, optioned to the minors last week by the Boston Red Sox, and cash for a minor league player to be named." Pineiro certainly isn’t going to fill the void left by injured ace Chris Carpenter but I guess when you have Kip Wells and Anthony Reyes combining for 23 of the Cardinals 53 losses, you can’t be too picky. Who knows, maybe this will turn into another Dave Duncan reclamation success story.
Stay tuned, only 2 and a half hours left until the deadline.
ESPN.com is reporting that the Dodgers have dealt Wilson Bentiment to the Yankees for reliever Scott Proctor. The Dodgers have been looking for bullpen help and apparently they believe Proctor will be just that. Bentiment was only batting .230 with the Dodgers but provided some pop and still has some upside. Plus, he can play about a million positions so he might be viewed as ARod’s replacement if/when he opts out at the end of the year.
Sorry I’m a bit behind on the rest of the rumors and trades. I’ll try to catch up as the day progresses.
The Cincinatti Reds have traded pitcher Kyle Lohse for Matt Maloney, a lefty from the Phil’s Double A team. Lohse has had an up and down season but maybe a change of scenery will help him out. Several teams had been rumored to be kicking the tires on the Reds’ starter, I would have thought the Reds could command more for him.
