Trade Deadline Live Blog

So we saw the Jake Peavy trade last night, perhaps facilitated some by the latest wave of Biogenesis suspension rumors. Are there any more relatively big names to be dealt? Who got the better package for their ace - the Cubs with Matt Garza, or the White Sox with Peavy?

I am not a believer in Jose Iglesias - at least, in his bat. I thought that the Red Sox did well to flip him while he still had more value, especially with Peavy signed through 2014.

Do the Cardinals add anyone today? Losing Yadier Molina is a huge blow. How about the freefalling Reds?

Apparently the Phillies aren't going to sell. See Jonah Keri's recent The 30 column (always an excellent read) for more on why this may be logical for them.

Who else can the Angels sell off today? It doesn't help that Ernesto Frieri's value has plummeted in the last 10 days.

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.
