The Philadelphia Phillies have given up on a prospect they once thought to be part of the team's future. On Wednesday, the team traded Jesse Biddle to the Pittsburgh Pirates for reliever Yoervis Medina. The move is an interesting one, too, because the Phillies actually designated the left-handed pitcher for assignment.
But then again, trading him to the Pirates was no longer a secret for the club because the 24-year-old is expected to miss the entire season after undergoing a successful Tommy John surgery in October of last year.
The former first round pick of the 2010 draft is actually lucky to have found a team that was willing to get him in spite of an uncertain future. more >>
Team president and general manager Dean Lombardi of the Los Angeles Kings is seemingly not satisfied with the lineup he has right now, and the fact that his team is in first place in the Pacific Division that he's looking at getting Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien via trade.
The Kings GM is never backing down from any opportunity to finally grab a Stanley Cup and adding a top caliber talent like Byfuglien is a huge step toward that direction. Of course, the Kings themselves are armed with the right tools and pieces to be able to give the Jets some interesting prospect in return. However, everything remains a rumor up to this point; though there's no denying how interesting it would be should both teams come up with something in the next few weeks.
One thing that makes perfect sense is that the 30-year-old American is a great fit for the Kings. He's one of the best defensemen in the league right now, and yes, Los Angeles should learn a thing or two about his inherent physicality in the ice. The Kings already have the best numbers in defensive plus remarkable goaltending and power play, but they could use an upgrade on the blue line, particularly a top 4 defenseman. more >>
A lot of players in the league are terrified while waiting for the Feb. 18 trade deadline, especially those who are constantly involved in trade rumors. One of them is Milwaukee Bucks center/power forward Greg Monroe, who the team surprisingly placed on the trade market just two weeks before the deadline.
Multiple sources are saying that Jason Kidd's team has made Monroe available but they're only entertaining offers for the right price, though there are no other details as to what they want in return. The 25-year-old big man is in first year of his three-year, $50 million contract he signed with the Bucks when he became an unrestricted free agent before the start of the season.
While it looks to be a surprising move for a team that relies a lot on Monroe's offensive abilities inside the paint, the thing is the Bucks may be looking for better production from him. The team is currently at the bottom of the Eastern Conference with a record of 20-31 and they're only better than the Brooklyn Nets and the league-worst Philadelphia 76ers. more >>
NASCAR's Joe Gibbs Racing announced major executive team changes, with J.D. Gibbs officially joining his father Joe Gibbs, as a co-chairman of the team. The announcement was made last Thursday by Coy Gibbs, Joe's other son and the newly installed vice-chairman and chief operations officer for JGR. Meanwhile, another company executive, Dave Alpern, has been promoted as the team's new president — the same position J.D. left after getting promoted as co-chairman.
But the executive team movement does not end there. JGR also announced that Tim Carmichael will be given additional responsibilities as the chief financial officer, while Wally Brown is the new competition director. The technical director position will be filled by Todd Bowland.
In line with the changes, it was revealed right after the changes that Todd Meredith has resigned as COO, but it looks like it was a decision mutually agreed upon by JGR and Meredith, considering that he still will be acting as a consultant while looking for better opportunities in the industry. more >>
