We'll be updating this post throughout the day with any trade happenings.
Update: Fresh off the presses I make this post, Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes been traded to the Oakland A's for Yoenis Cespedes.
Update 3:05: Andrew Miller on the move. He's been a shutdown lefty reliever. The Orioles pen was already pretty good.
Andrew Miller went to Orioles for Eduardo Rodriguez— Peter Gammons (@pgammo) July 31, 2014
Update 2:40: Look at Topkin giving info on his sources, not over-promising what he knows. Now there's a journalist.
2:30 update: I can play this game too. "The Rays are just working out the details on a David Price trade. They have several options." Did I lie? Nope. Did I tell you any thing? Nope. Do I have a source you care about? Definitely not. Not impugning Stark. Just saying that I could play. (This update was Ian, with a bad attitude, not Erik on the by-line.)
#Rays "close" to trading Price, sources say. Destination still unclear.— Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) July 31, 2014
2:20 update: Well, maybe you can
Dodgers reiterated they're not back in on David Price— Peter Gammons (@pgammo) July 31, 2014
2:10 update: Wait, I thought Joc Pederson was off limits? You mean you can't trust what GMs say?
1:50 update: Things are confusing :/
Deadline Day is fun. Two tweets from prominent, veteran, national reporters less than 30 minutes apart: pic.twitter.com/jIRl6O37od— Aaron Gleeman (@AaronGleeman) July 31, 2014
One reporter says Price is definitely moving, the other says he's not.
12:45 update: St. Louis is getting John Lackey from Boston for Joe Kelly and Alan Craig, per Peter Gammons just now on MLBNetwork.
Source: David Price trade talks intensifying following the Jon Lester deal. Chances of Price trade have increased in last 12 hours.— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 31, 2014
Intensifying means lots of yelling, I think.
Lester trade happened early enough that it's opened up the overall market. Rays have Price, Zobrist, Joyce, Rodriguez. Lots of action.— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 31, 2014
Rodriguez. That's new.
