12:17pm: An AL GM doesn't see the White Sox trading Chris Sale.

12:15pm: Comcast says the Astros aren't willing to put CSN Houston's best interests ahead of their own.

10:50am: The White Sox, Diamondbacks, and Angels are working on a three-team deal that would send Mark Trumbo to Arizona, Adam Eaton to Chicago, and Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs to Los Angeles.

10:29am: Washington is shopping Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard, with Clippard drawing "more interest," but Washington would have to be blown away by an offer.

Hey Comcast, STFU, why would anyone do that in business you morons. Stop crying and shut your mouth, you TV services are completely inferior compared to just about everyone else. This "partnership" couldn't end fast enough for me, I would like a real provider/channel to collaborate with, ahem "Fox Sports".

Wow, wish I could edit my comment, spell check fail. Guess I am part of that moron group...

You're hilarious Blazemule.

Astros should take as much money as they can away from CSN Houston.

Here's another interest tidbit from today...

"Heard Astros were very high on Lombardozzi. Bo Porter had hoped to bring him to Houston before Lombardozzi was sent to DET in Fister trade" - @masnKolko on Twitter

Veras/Morse/Hammel would be good signings too.
