Thursday Trade Deadline Running Post

2:33pm: Padres talks are progressing with multiple teams, with Tyson Ross as a key piece

1:21pm: Wonder Boy Chris Cotillo "hears" that the Blue Jays are interested in adding Andrew Cashner

1:20pm: The Yankees are poised to strike, which sounds really threatening.

1:02pm: (Twiddles thumbs)

With Hamels and Price off the board, that leaves the San Diego pitchers as the most-linked pitchers to the Astros. The Astros stuck to their guns on Kazmir as the lone rental...

Lunchtime: The bobblehead this weekend looks like a cross between Lloyd Christmas and George Bush

11:20am: Price to Toronto is "imminent"

11:27am: This is getting redundant. Toronto and Detroit are getting close.

11:26am: Toronto may be willing to send Daniel Norris to Detroit.

11:13am: San Fran is now sad as it looks to everyone like Price is going to Toronto

11:07am: Jon Paul Morosi says the Astros would have a better chance at landing Price if they are willing to move McCullers or Velasquez.

10:57am: Rosenthal says Blue Jays may be close, talks "won't go on much longer" for Price

10:50am: Toronto "appears to be a strong favorite" for David Price

10:44am: Blue Jays are making a major push for David Price

9:54am: Jon Morosi apparently said on MLB Network that the Astros are talking about Ross or Cashner "plus" Kimbrel. Kimbrel is under team control through 2017 with a team option for 2018. Ross is under team control through 2017, Cashner through 2016.

9:31am: The Tigers are confident they can get a big haul for David Price.

8:45am: The Dodgers may acquire Alex Wood simply to enhance their proposal for Price.

8:36am: Bob Nightengale says that the Dodgers, Yankees, Blue Jays, and Astros plan to bid seriously on Price.

8:33am: Gammons reports that Crane has approved any deal to add payroll, Crane and Luhnow have talked on Price, but the Padres are more likely, and Mark Appel is available.

8:00am: Some League executives think Price is headed to the Dodgers.

7:57am: Ken Rosenthal explains what happened with Wilmer Flores last night, and a larger point about reporting the Trade Deadline.

7:53am: Because life isn't fair, the Cardinals will get $1 billion thanks to rights from a new network deal, and a minority stake.

7:17am: Houston is talking to Detroit about David Price

7:16am: Hamels told the Phillies he would not accept a trade to the Astros. His wife apparently has relatives in the burning hellscape that is the Metroplex.

1:10am: One GM thinks today is Padres GM AJ Preller Day.
