The people who went to sleep about 9:30 or 10 p.m. because they have early commute to work are in for one heckuva shock when they wake up.

The deal that was, then wasn't

Around 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Mets SS Wilmer Flores and RHP Zack Wheeler were reportedly on their way to Milwaukee in exchange for OF Carlos Gomez. But by 11 p.m. ET, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said the trade "has not and will not transpire." Wait, what?


Flores emotional in Mets loss

A visibly upset Wilmer Flores -- and fans -- reacted to reports that the shortstop had been traded to the Brewers. But the transaction never transpired, and Flores will remain in New York.


Jose Altuve flashes that All-Star glove

The Astros 2B had no business making this play up the middle, but he did -- somehow -- and threw Angels DH C.J. Cron out at first.


Paul Pierce fails with first pitch

New Clipper Paul Pierce's pitch at the Dodgers game Tuesday came up well short of the target. But what do you expect? The Truth ends games. He doesn't start them.


Gordon goes full extension

Marlins 2B Dee Gordon put it all out there to make a great extended catch against the Nationals.


How Mets-Brewers trade fell through

Puig, Dodgers outslug A's

Yasiel Puig celebrated his bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium with a homer and 3 RBIs, as Los Angeles scored 5 in the 7th and 2 in the 8th to rally past Oakland 10-7.

Folks, I get why Flores was crying. I don't get why he was still on the field if at that point it appeared trade was going through. #mets

Gomez's agent says Brewer is healthy

Said Scott Boras, who represents Carlos Gomez: "[Gomez] is injury-free. He's playing every day. I have our players examined rigorously. He has no problem whatsoever. He has not seen a doctor for anything other than his hamstring issue. He is getting no treatment, has not asked for treatment." (via Fox Sports)

Dodgers re-take lead on A's

After Oakland scored 4 runs in the top of the 7th, L.A. responded with 5 of their own in the bottom of the inning, Enrique Hernandez's 2-run double plated the go-ahead run, and Yasiel Puig made it 8-6 with an RBI hit. Follow live

Tulowitzki can play some defense, too

Not only did Troy Tulowitzki homer in his Blue Jays debut, he also made a throw reminiscent of his idol Derek Jeter.

An emotional night for Mets' Flores

"When I came up to hit [in the 7th] I heard everybody cheering," Wilmer Flores said. "I said, why? There's no reason. I thought [a trade] was the only reason. I was sad, being with the Mets forever, and all my teammates here. That's why I got emotional."

A's roar back against Dodgers

Oakland scored four runs in the top of the 7th on a pair of 2-run singles from Brett Lawrie and Eric Sogard to take a 6-3 lead. Follow live
