Nobody is trading anybody

Pardon me for being too reactionary, but the thought of the Astros not selling at a deadline in which they find themselves in the middle of the worst season (so far) in franchise history is too much for me to bear.

Ken Rosenthal says the Astros have had scouts at the D'amo''ba''s and Braves' Triple-A teams in recent days.

The Braves also reportedly like the idea of having Bourn in center field if potential deals with Beltran and "others" (like Hunter Pence?) fall through. A source called that chance "remote."
