Major League Baseball’s trade deadline has come and gone, which means it’s time to dust off the infield dirt and see which moves could have a significant effect on those teams eyeing deep October runs. Here’s a look at five of them: RP KOJI UEHARA & RP MIKE ADAMS, TEXAS RANGERS
Perhaps no team read this year’s trade market better than the Rangers. Texas general manager Jon Daniels was focused on one thing leading up to July 31 — improve the pitching staff. With few rotation arms available at a reasonable cost, Daniels turned his attention to solidifying a bullpen that unraveled in the Rangers World Series’ loss to San Francisco last year.
The NBA laid off 114 people this week in a cost-cutting move it says was unrelated to the lockout. Sort of.
According to league spokesman Mike Bass, “The layoffs are not a direct result of the lockout but rather a response to the same underlying issue — that is, the league’s expenses far outpace our revenues.”
With the NBA claiming annual losses of $300 million, it’s unclear if more pink slips are coming.
Anthony Galea did not provide Tiger Woods with performance-enhancing drugs.
That was the message from Galea’s former assistant, Mary Anne Catalano, through her attorney Ron Personius on Monday. Galea, a Toronto doctor with known ties to high-level athletes such as Woods, Alex Rodriguez, and Carlos Beltran, pleaded guilty last month to importing misbranded and unapproved drugs — including human growth hormone — into the U.S.
When Derek Jeter became just the 28th player in Major League Baseball history to collect 3,000 hits Saturday, he cemented a legacy already encased in stone. For the New York Yankees captain, his resume had already passed inspection by baseball’s Hall of Fame.
Now that he’s crashed the 3,000-hit party, we can focus our attention on who might one day join this fraternity. It’s an achievement within arm’s length of several big league bats. The question remains, however — is time on their side?
