Ricciardi: Sox not trading top prospects
By: Jay Asser

ESPN baseball analyst J.P. Ricciardi joined The Big Show on Friday afternoon to talk about the mentality of the Red Sox approaching the trade deadline, the chaos surrounding the deadline, and the etiquette between general managers when trying to make a deal.

 

"I think it’s safe to say that the Red Sox are not going to trade Casey Kelly and any of their really, really good prospects because they know they’re a big part of what their future is going to be," Ricciardi said. "I can see them doing some minor things, addressing the bullpen and maybe addressing a bat somewhere, but I don’t think you’re going to see them going above and beyond and doing something crazy."

 

Ricciardi also touched on the probability of big-name players such as Prince Fielder, Jayson Werth, Dan Haren, and Roy Oswalt being moved over the next nine days.

Minors to test for HGH immediately
By: DJ Bean

A major foot has dropped in the attempt to clean up professional sports, as MLB commissioner Bud Selig announced Thursday that testing for human growth hormone is to begin immediately in the minor leagues. 

 

Blood testing for HGH does not exist in the majors, but Selig was able to implement it in the minors because most of the players in farm systems are not yet in the MLBPA. 

 

The players' association would have to approve any plans of Selig's to test for HGH in the majors. Currently no other professional league in North America conducts the blood testing.
