11:00am CDT – Update on the three-team deal. The Padres would get outfielder Ryan Ludwick from the Cardinals, Jake Westbrook goes from the Indians to the Cardinals and the Padres would send one prospect each to the Indians and Cardinals.

10:58am CDT – Tom Krasovic reporting that the San Diego Padres are the third team involved in the Jake Westbrook deal with Jake Ludwick going to San Diego and Westbrook going from Cleveland to St. Louis.

10:57am CDT – Another deal I failed to mention from last night was the Yankees acquiring Austin Kearns from the Cleveland Indians.

10:56am CDT – Looks like the Adam Dunn deal to the White Sox is dead according to Joe Cowley.

10:52am CDT – Anthony Castrovince, MLB.com beat writer for the Cleveland Indians, reports that there is now a third team involved in the Jake Westbrook to the Cardinals deal. More details still to come.

10:51am CDT – The White Sox apparently called the Dodgers about acquiring Manny Ramirez. According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the White Sox wanted the Dodgers to pay all but $1 million of what was left of Ramirez’s contract with no player coming back.

10:49am CDT – The Arizona Diamondbacks still would like to move Kelly Johnson or Adam LaRoche according to Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports.

10:46am CDT – The San Diego Padres are apparently deep in talks with the Cardinals about outfielder Ryan Ludwick. The Padres have been in need of an outfield bat and his .281 batting average to go along with 11 home runs would fit the bill.

10:39am CDT – Let’s get to the news of the morning so far.

Adam Dunn is still a member of the Washington Nationals and apparently the White Sox are none too happy with how things have transpired thus far.

The Arizona Diamondbacks traded catcher Chris Snyder last night for cash and a player to be named later to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates say they have no interest in flipping Snyder to another team.

One deal this morning is close and it’s the St. Louis Cardinals who are very close to landing Cleveland Indians’ right-hander Jake Westbrook. Several sources are reporting it but the deal is not complete. Westbrook is scheduled to pitch for the Indians in a few hours from now so we’ll see what happens.

10:37am CDT – Good afternoon baseball fans and welcome to one of the most exciting days of the baseball season, maybe even more so than the All-Star festivities. It’s the trade deadline.

This is the day where all of us fans sit on the edge of our seats waiting to see what kind of deals our teams are going to make. We want certain players, we hear certain rumors, we get our hopes up, and we wait.
