MLB Trade Rumors: Prince Fielder and 10 Stars Who Could Still Be Traded

Another front-line starter moved teams Sunday, adding fuel to the fire that will hit a full-on burn this week with the MLB trade deadline set for Saturday.

The Los Angeles Angels swooped in and stole Dan Haren out from under the East Coast suitors like the Phillies and Yankees.

Now Haren, among the National League leaders in strikeouts even in the midst of a comparatively off year with the struggling Diamondbacks, will solidify an Angels staff trying to close a seven-game gap against the Texas Rangers.

The A.L. West has owned the headlines thus far when it comes to big trades, with Cliff Lee landing in Texas.

With another big name off the wish list, who’s the most likely players to move over the next week and where are they going?

George Steinbrenner Dead: The Boss’ 25 Most Memorable Yankees Moments

It’s hard to sum up the history of arguably the most influential sports figure of the last 50 years, but we’ll give it a try.

He promised winning and delivered by demanding it of every member of the Yankees organization.

Did Gaga get herself kicked out of the Yankees clubhouse forever?

The 10 Worst Hairy Faces in Major League Baseball Today

It’s almost a ritual in baseball.

From Al Hrabosky to Dennis Eckersley to Rollie Fingers, facial hair has been part of the charm of the game.
