Rangers lost out on Hamels, are going to make a hard run at Greinke.  They've got the farm, they've got the cash, and they've got the motivation.

I wonder if they're willing to part with Profar.

ESPN says Greinke is definitely being traded.

Ryan Roberts officially traded to the Rays for INF Tyler Bortnick.


Bortnick sounds like something you call your annoying little brother

Unless they get Olt and move Ramirez for a shortstop I'd think that's what they'd want.

Brewers' GM was himself quoted as saying so (per Charlie and Dave last night).

Honestly, of their three big prospects, he's the one position they can afford to trade. Beltre will eventually be gone and they always need pitching.

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the Former Nat thread or here in the Non-Nats trade watch. 

Locally, media outlets are stirring, saying that not only is the Dempster-to-the-Dodgers deal still alive and kicking, but that the Dodgers and Cubs have had some discussions about including Alfonso Soriano or Bryan LaHair in the trade for Ryan Dempster. LA is also looking for offense as well as pitching -- but where would the Fonz play on the Dodgers?

Dodgers are also looking at Johnson of Miami and Shields of TB for pitching, as well as Greinke, but a surprise rumor surfaced (to ME it was a surprise) that the Dodgers are trying to pry Justin Morneau and Josh Willingham from the Twins.

Per Rosenthal:

Greinke is indeed going to Los Angeles.  But to the Angels, not the Dodgers.

Quote from: Ken Rosenthal
Deal is done: Greinke to #Angels, sources tell me

Angels send their #'s 2, 4, and 9 prospects to Milwaukee in the deal. Nice haul for Doug Melvin.

Really good job, he damn near matched the Padres haul for Latos and A's for Gio

With the number of wild card teams doubling, you have to think that more teams think they're in the hunt and would be buyers compared to the prior situation.

Thus, higher prices paid for primo win-now talent.

Jean Segura is the big piece. Top 50 prospect. Two double A pitchers.

If we had wanted him, it would have cost Rendon

This is really good news for us. I was pretty concerned about the Braves landing him.

Scutaro to the Giants.

Colorado Rockies ‏@Rockies
#Rockies have acquired INF Charlie Culberson from #Giants in exchange for Marco Scutaro and cash considerations.

Trade for a catcher, Rizzo!  And try to find one who can hit a breaking ball.

I think the change in the playoff format probably is the driving force. Melvin did a good job of matching up with the team that had the best surpluses to Brewers needs.

And, in a related note, that probably means Norris back to Sac'to or Suzuki to TB.
