The Cubs aren't offering discounts, at least not yet. Unless a club is willing to part with some of its best young talent, Cubs executives Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer seem comfortable holding onto Ryan Dempster and Matt Garza. It still seems likely that Dempster will get traded, but the Dodgers, Red Sox and others are far from comfortable with the asking price.
The Rangers have scratched pitcher Roy Oswalt from Monday's start against the Red Sox with tightness in his lower back. Scott Feldman is scheduled to pitch in Oswalt's place.
The Tigers are surging and the White Sox are making moves. The Indians, meanwhile, have remained pretty much the same in the American Central.
Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez is as surprised as anybody to see his name popping up in trade rumors.
And while some teams certainly valued Quentin as a trade target, the Padres, apparently, held the view that he's better off remaining in San Diego, so much so that the team has finalized a three-year contract extension that will keep the right-handed-hitting slugger and San Diego native home for the foreseeable future.
James Shields and Ryan Dempster are two of the bigger names being bandied about as the non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches. The focus of the Deadline continues to focus on starting pitching.
When pitcher Matt Garza was pulled from Saturday's 12-0 loss to the Cardinals after three innings, at least half of the 43,424 at Busch Stadium, and probably most folks linked into baseball's rumor mill, thought the Cubs had made a trade. Instead, the problem was cramping in Garza's right triceps.
The non-waiver Trade Deadline can't come soon enough for Cubs players, especially those who have seen their names mentioned on Twitter or heard rumors from family.
Most of the scouts at Busch Stadium to watch Ryan Dempster on Friday stayed to watch Matt Garza on Saturday to see if he might be a better fit before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline.

The Chicago White have acquired right-handed pitcher Brett Myers and cash considerations from the Houston Astros in exchange for right-handed pitcher Matt Heidenreich, left-handed pitcher Blair Walters and a player to be named later.
The Astros continue to deal, sending veteran pitcher Brett Myers to the White Sox on Saturday.
There is no doubt the Braves would like to add Brewers ace Zack Greinke or another top-flight starting pitcher before the July 31 Trade Deadline.

The Mets do not have to do anything in their next 10 games to convince general manager Sandy Alderson that he should be a buyer at the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline. Injuries to starters Johan Santana and Dillon Gee haven't changed Alderson's mindset that the Mets are still in the race for a National League playoff spot, but poor results will.
With July more than half over and the All-Star break fully in the rearview mirror, a single topic dominates baseball these days: the approach of the non-waiver Trade Deadline. Clubs are sorting out whether they're buyers or sellers and trying to assess how new Draft-pick compensation rules affect their valuation of players, all while also trying to, you know, win ballgames.
Manager Don Mattingly said that current trade rumors about the Dodgers' attempts to beef up their roster for the stretch run sure beat the alternative.
