Trade Deadline Live Blog

After a very busy Saturday, we still have four hours until this year's non-waiver trade deadline expires. We've already seen Michael Bourn go to the Braves this morning, and the Rafael Furcal trade to St. Louis become official.

Who's next? What are your thoughts on the trades so far? Share your thoughts here.

Events I'm still waiting for:

- Ubaldo Jimenez has to pass his physical to make the trade to the Indians official.
- Will Rich Harden ultimately get dealt to the Red Sox, or is that deal officially dead?
- Where will Heath Bell end up?
- Will B.J. Upton get dealt?
- Will the Pirates get an outfielder to go along with their acquisition of Derrek Lee?
- Will the Reds trade for anyone?
- Will the Cubs trade anyone, anyone at all, away, or are the likes of Jeff Baker and Reed Johnson just too viable for their 2012 chances?

La-La-La-L.A. Gets Lord Stanley!
Just a few things that caught my eye:
  • Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal celebration? # priceless. I wonder if he'll ever get his gloves back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist stopped the 50th shot of the game. He couldn't stop the 51st. #connsmythe if the Rangers had found a way to come back in this series.
Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.
