of prospects including shortstop Jean Segura. The Halos gambled on getting a rental in Greinke and the move back Antworten

The Toronto Blue Jays made a couple of deals heading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline a year ago and both were designed to shore up the bullpen. They dealt outfielder Travis Snider - a former first-round pick - to Pittsburgh for reliever Brad Lincoln and sent Eric Thames to Seattle for another hard-throwing reliever in Steve Delabar. At the very least, Alex Anthopoulos won the Delabar deal, seeing as how he blossomed into an All-Star (with a little help from the fans) this year. The Mariners ended up dealing Thames to Baltimore for another minor leaguer. The swap with Pittsburgh hasnt quite panned out so far. Lincoln has had a couple of shining moments with the big club, but has spent the bulk of this season with Buffalo in Triple A. It was a pretty active week headlining up to the deadline last year. The Angels landed the biggest name getting right hander Zach Greinke from Milwaukee for a trio of prospects including shortstop Jean Segura. The Halos gambled on getting a rental in Greinke and the move backfired when he signed with the Dodgers in the offseason. And the Angels didnt even make the postseason. Detroit did well, giving up three prospects - including pitcher Jacob Turner - to Miami to get right-hander Anibal Sanchez and second baseman Omar Infante - two players who were key in getting them to the World Series against the Giants. The Dodgers new ownership made some huge noise, getting Hanley Ramirez from Miami and Shane Victorino from the Phillies before pulling off the biggest blockbuster of many a year on August 25, getting Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto from Boston in a nine-player swap. Those deals didnt exactly pay immediate dividends for the Dodgers, partially because Crawford was injured. But a year later, with a boost from Yasiel Puig, they are in first place in the National League West and look like they could be World Series contenders. Still, the team that did the best at the deadline a year ago was San Francisco. The Giants added Hunter Pence from the Philllies for outfielder Nate Schierholtz and two prospects and then second baseman Marco Scutaro, who turned into a playoff hero from Colorado. Pence added a colourful quirky brand of leadership that helped propel the Giants to their second World Series victory in three years. Ironically, the Giants could turn into big time sellers this year now that theyve fallen to fourth in the NL West. The Dodgers and Arizona are only seperated by a game and a half in the West, so they could both be active. St. Louis is on top in the Central, but could be in the market for starting pitching. With Tim Hudson suffering that horrible broken ankle, East-leading Atlanta could be looking for a pitcher as well. The American League could be a little quieter, since Texas has already landed Matt Garza from the Cubs and Baltimore has picked up late reliever Francisco Rodriguez from Milwaukee. White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy could be the biggest starting pitcher name to get moved this time around. Its hard to say where the Blue Jays stand in all of this. Theyre 10 games behind Baltimore for the second Wild Card spot with 61 games left to play, so loading up for a run doesnt make much sence. The Blue Jays arent about to "blow it up" either, when their stated plan was to be serious contenders for a three-year span. I could see a reliever or two being moved. Lefty Darren Oliver (whos close to retirement) comes to mind and maybe a utility-type player such as Emilio Bonifacio. If any starting pitcher is moved, Id bet on Mark Buehrle. He upped his stock considerably with that two-hit shutout of Houston on Thursday night (yeah, I know it was only the Astros). Buehrle might look good in the rotation of a National League contender like the Dodgers, Cardinals, Diamondbacks or Braves. The most interesting team to watch might be the Yankees. Theyre only 2 1/2 games back of the second Wild Card slot in the AL and re-acquired Alfonso Soriano. The Yankees are always in it to win it and being this close may be just the temptation they need to go all in again. The non-waiver trade deadline is this Wednesday afternoon at 4pm et. Elsewhere, right-hander Marcus Stroman is continuing to put impressive numbers with the Blue Jays AA New Hampshire affiliate. On Wednesday, he struck out 11 members of the Harrisburg Senators over 6 2/3 innings in a no decision. The 59" flamethrower is 5-2 with a 2.99 ERA. Hes struck out 79 while only walking 19 and opponents are only hitting .216 against him. In his last five starts, Stroman has gone at least six innings and twice into the seventh. He just might be a candidate for the Blue Jays starting rotation next spring.Los Angeles Lakers Shirts . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. Lakers Jerseys 2019 . As he recorded his 23rd and 24th points of the evening, a segment of the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd expressed their appreciation for the Raptors point guard with a smattering of MVP chants. . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night. Fake Lakers Jerseys . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Lakers Jerseys 2020 .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have placed centre Cody Hodgson on injured reserve and recalled two players from their AHL affiliate in Rochester.Arsene Wenger says the atmosphere at the Emirates on Thursday was the most downbeat he has witnessed in his 20 years with Arsenal.There were a number of empty seats for the Gunners clash with West Brom as fans showed their frustration with recent results.While the hosts were comfortable 2-0 winners against the Baggies thanks to Alexis Sanchezs double, they are competing only for a top-four spot rather than the Premier League title after an inconsistent run of results.

Many Arsenal fans stayed away from the Emirates while others made they feelings known Some of the fans didnt go to show that they are not happy, said Henry on Sky Sports Now. Now Arsene is saying they should come to the stadium and support the team and Im going to have to agree with that because you have to support your team all the way even if you think they are not performing at the level that you want them to. You can always express what you feel about your team after the game but come to the game and support your team.Its up also to the players to bring them to the stadium and to have something to look forward to. But again, Im more of a believer of come and then if youre not happy with the team, you can say something at the end of the game.Look out for the extended interview with Arsene Wenger on on Sunday, with the Arsenal manager giving his thoughts on Leicester, why he thinks they could struggle next season and how the Gunners need to improve.Also See:Henrys Arsenal assessmentRace for the top fourSky Live: Sunderland v ArsenalHenry on Rooney and Rashford ' ' '
