to the July 31 trade deadline (4 p.m. ET) Joe Maddon Jersey , but there are several additional moves that have a chance to be made.The Minnesota Twins came into the 2018 season with the idea that they were good enough to contend with the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central. It hasn't worked out that way, as the Twins are nine games behind the Tribe after losing three of four games to the Boston Red Sox.They are even further behind in the wild-card race, as they trail the Seattle Mariners for the No. 2 spot by 13.5 games.As a result, the Twins are in a sell mode as the deadline approaches, and second baseman Brian Dozier could be among their most valuable commodities to move. The San Francisco Giants and Cleveland Indians are two of the teams that are most interested in Dozier, according to Twins beat writer Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.Dozier is not having the kind of explosive year with the bat that he did in either of the last two years, but he still represents something of a power bat at a middle-infield position. Dozier has a .224/.306/.404 slash line with 16 home runs and 52 runs batted in. Dozier belted 42 homers and knocked in 99 runs in 2016, and he hit 34 homers and 93 RBI last year.Dozier was especially hot in the second half of the season in each of the last two years.While the Indians are on their way to winning the AL Central and have their sights set on competing with the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees in the postseason, the Giants are in fourth place in the NL West.The Giants have a 53-54 record and have dropped seven of their last 10 games, and they are 6.5 games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers.The Cincinnati Reds picked up pitcher Matt Harvey off the scrapheap after the New York Mets parted company with him early in the season.While Harvey appeared to have lost most of his velocity and was pitching poorly at the time of his departure from Citi Field http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-willson-contreras-jersey , he has bounced back nicely since joining the Reds.Harvey has a 5-4 record in his 14 starts with Cincinnati, and he has a 4.44 earned-run averaged with a 1.192 WHIP. That's not a superstar level, but it is fairly competent.That's good enough to interest the Milwaukee Brewers, who have a strong need to upgrade their starting pitching. MLB network insider Jon Morosi tweeted that talks between the Brewers and the Reds are ongoing about sending Harvey to Milwaukee.Andy Martino martinonycMets having many, many trade discussions about Zack Wheeler, but the tone seems to have shifted since Wednesday. Heres why:gcFXEBk5c3One other potential move among pitchers involves Zack Wheeler of the New York Mets, who has won his last three starts and has pitched with increased efficiency.Wheeler has pitched 7.2, 7.0 and 6.0 innings(per Baseball-Reference) in those three starts, and he has allowed six earned runs in those three starts. Wheeler is 5-6 with a 4.11 ERA and 116 strikeouts in 120.1 innings pitched.The Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Brewers and Yankees are among the teams that have shown the most interest in Wheeler Albert Almora Jr Jersey , according to MLB insider Jon Heyman of Fancred.It seems likely that the Mets might be most interested in dealing with the Brewerssince the Phillies and Braves are division rivals and sending him across town to the Yankees could be dangerous.The Mets may end up keeping Wheeler unless any of the potential trade partners improve their offers. BOSTON (AP) — The San Gabriel Mountains shimmering in the distance will be a welcome sight for the Los Angeles Dodgers after two chilly, failed nights at Fenway Park.No team has overcome a 2-0 World Series deficit in 22 years, but that is the tall task the Dodgers face after crumbling before the 37-foot-high Green Monster.“It’s going to be warmer, and hopefully our bats get hot, too,” Cody Bellinger said after Wednesday night’s 4-2 defeat to the Boston Red Sox.No wonder they were California Dreamin’ about Thursday’s flight home.Used to the balmy breezes at home and usually hospitable weather in the NL West, Los Angeles hadn’t started a game this year in a temperature below 58. Facing a 53-degree temperature at the start of the opener, the Dodgers lost 8-4. It was just 46 in the first inning for Game 2, and the Dodgers’ bats were cold again — their last 16 hitters retired in order.“This is the first time we’ve played in obviously weather like this — San Francisco a little bit, but nothing like this,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said before the game. “So it’s an adjustment Kyle Hendricks Jersey , and that’s part of the home-field advantage and especially being in the bullpen, where you have a little heater, but still have to kind of get hot and stay hot. It’s more of a challenge.”Ryan Madson was unusually open about how out of sorts the Dodgers were on late October nights in the northeast.“Last night in the bullpen, we had a couple of heaters going,” he said before Game 2. “It was warm out there, but to get up and move around. I didn’t feel as gummy as usual when it’s 75, 80 degrees. So I’m going to make that adjustment tonight, move around a little bit more. I’m going to tell the guys who didn’t pitch last night, just move around a little bit more than usual, move your knee joints. But maybe they’re young and they don’t feel it.”Madson’s problem was the lack of movement on his pitches, as well as a changeup he threw for a wild pitch in Game 1. Brought in to relieve Hyun-Jin Ryu and protect a 2-1 lead with the bases loaded and two outs in the fifth a night later http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-mike-montgomery-jersey , he walked Steve Pearce and gave up a two-run single to J.D. Martinez before throwing a single offspeed pitch.“The ball’s not going where I want it. Last night it was pulling down to the left, and tonight it was high to the right,” Madson said .Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt was annoyed at the conditions experienced by his relievers in a bullpen just in front of the right field bleachers.“Brutal. Pretty brutal,” he told Sports Illustrated. “What I don’t understand is why baseball allows it. You’ve got the rubber right there and people literally standing over you.”Fenway’s frenzied fans benefit the Red Sox, a big-league best 57-24 at home during the regular season and 8-1 in the World Series since 2004.“They live baseball 24 hours, seven days a week,” said Boston manager Alex Cora, who played for the Dodgers from 1998-04 and for the Red Sox from 2005-08. “They were into every pitch. Two strikes, they stood up. Madson came in and he was wild, and they were screaming and they were loud. Sometimes we take them for granted, honestly.”If Los Angeles is to recover Ian Happ Jersey , it will be at Chavez Ravine. The temperature for last year’s World Series opener at Dodger Stadium was 103 degrees. A more temperate mid-80s is forecast for Friday, when rookie Walker Buehler starts against Rick Porcello in an attempt to spark a turnaround. With a right-hander on the mound for Boston, most of the Dodgers’ top four home-run hitters are likely to be back in the starting lineup: left-handed batters Max Muncy, Joc Pederson and Bellinger were all benched in Boston along with the switch-hitting Yasmani Grandal.“We’re going to shuffle it up for Game 3, but it’s not because of necessarily performance, it’s kind of who the starting pitcher for those guys is,” Roberts said.But even if the Dodgers win at least two of three to force the Series back to Boston, they would still have to win at least once at quirky, noisy Fenway. There is no sign they can warm to the task.
