Among the teams that have expressed interest in Jay Bruce: The New York Mets. Offense needed now, and '17 coverage if Cespedes opts out.

If the Yankees can get Giolito for Miller they should do it and send the Nats a giant floral arrangement shaped like Nationals Park.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Nationals not trading Lucas Giolito in any deals at this deadline...not for Davis not for Miller. They are sticking with their long term plan of having 3 potential or already number one starters in Scherzer Strasburg and eventually Giolito.

'Rookie of the Year' returns to Wrigley

Thomas Ian Nicholas threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field Thursday, 23 years after starring in the film "Rookie of the Year."

Newly inducted Mike Piazza will only be on display Saturday, but his Hall of Fame plaque will be at Citi Field all weekend. The Mets will retire No. 31 in a pregame ceremony on Saturday.

Mets first base coach Tom Goodwin will manage the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League this offseason. The AFL season begins Oct. 11, for the record, which is interesting considering the MLB playoffs are still going on.

White Sox remain potential headliner of trade deadline deals as they continue to talk to Rangers, Yankees, Dodgers, Astros others re: star players. Nationals determined to land one of Davis or Miller before they make a trade for next level type closer.

Padres GM AJ Preller has certainly proved in his first two years of being a GM that he can buy (winter 2015) ; Stand Pat (summer 2015) and sell (winter and summer 2016).

Uni Watch: Chicago's short attention span

Once upon a time, the White Sox dared to take the field while clad in shorts. The ugly truth

Chicago White Sox

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Cubs manager Joe Maddon says Tommy La Stella was not happy about being optioned to Iowa, but that's the reality of the rules and of having too many good players.

As mentioned Wednesday, makes sense in current market for Pirates to talk with other teams about Melancon. They have other closer options.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Padres are not done they are still talking to teams regarding both Derek Norris and Matt Kemp and once again willing to eat significant dollars for right prospects. Number one seller at this year's trade deadline continues getting it done. Tick tock tick tock until Monday 4pm et trade deadline

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Here's a twist to Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy trade talks: Lucroy's contract includes a limited no-trade clause that allows him to block deals to the Indians, Tigers, Angels, Nationals, Twins, Athletics, Padres and Mariners. Cleveland is the most noteworthy team on that list. The provision in Lucroy's contract doesn't preclude a trade, but it's an additional obstacle the Indians would have to surmount.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Still think it's unlikely that Chris Sale gets dealt. But FWIW, the Rangers, Orioles, Marlins & Nationals all had scouts at his start Thursday

Cubs have assembled a fearsome trio

With Aroldis Chapman now in tow, the back end of the Cubs' bullpen figures to be an absolute nightmare for opponents.
