The Indians played at San Francisco on June 26th, and as the Cleveland players began to stretch on the field for batting practice, Orlando Cabrera walked away from the pack and went to shake the hand of someone standing next to the cage -- San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy.

This was a day after the first published report tying the Giants in a possible match with the infielder, and just a couple of days after Cabrera had been told by Manny Acta that he wouldn't be a regular player for the Indians anymore.

As Cabrera walked away from Bochy, he glanced over and saw that I had seen his greetings with the San Francisco manager. And Cabrera smiled and winked: He knew there was a fit for him with San Francisco.

Players say out loud that they ignore the trade rumors and they don't pay attention to it, but the truth is that they can't get away from it this time of year. If their names appear in a trade rumor, their family, friends and teammates will alert them.

Few players have taken the field under more unusual circumstances than Ubaldo Jimenez. After weeks of trade speculation, a deal between the Rockies and Indians was at the 1-yard-line on Saturday evening -- but not quite finished, contrary to many reports -- and so Jimenez took the mound, as the two teams finished their haggling over the last piece of the deal. And predictably, given the distractions at hand, Jimenez was awful.

The last few hours before the trade deadline today will be very anxious, especially for Ryan Ludwick, who is almost certainly going to be dealt to the Indians, for Denard Span -- the object of the Nationals' obsessive search for a center fielder -- and for the small army of right-handed relievers that is likely to be moved today: Grant Balfour (Arizona?), Heath Bell (Texas remains a possible fit), Rafael Betancourt, Kyle Farnsworth and many others.

General managers had been say for a few weeks that there had been a lot of trade discussions, and that while there hadn't been many deals, there would be a bunch coming down the line.

• The Indians were not scared off by the warning signs that hovered over Jimenez and scared off other teams -- the diminished velocity and performance, and the effort by Colorado to trade him in spite of his team-friendly contract.

The Yankees had asked the Rockies if they could give Jimenez a physical examination, if a trade agreement were reached, and were told no. The Red Sox had similar concerns.

But the Indians are taking the chance, in agreeing to trade Drew Pomeranz and others; once Cleveland agreed to put Pomeranz in the deal, one GM said, it was a worthwhile trade for the Rockies. Jimenez must still pass a physical later today, although it's not exactly clear how extensive the exam will be. One inning was a bad way to end it for Jimenez with the Rockies, writes Dave Krieger.

One scout tells Paul Hoynes that he can't believe the Rockies traded Jimenez.

From Stephen Oh of Accuscore: They report Cleveland's chance of making the postseason increased from 17 percent to 23 percent, and that the net improvement is 1.1 wins over the rest of the season. This makes sense given how many starts (about 12) Jimenez figures to make the rest of the season.

CLEVELAND INDIANS, REST OF SEASON
W L WIN% WIN DIV PLAYOFF
Current Forecast 29.7 29.3 50.34% 16.9% 16.9%
w/ Ubaldo Jimenez 30.8 28.2 52.20% 22.7% 22.7%
IMPACT 1.1 Wins 1.86% 5.8% 5.8%

The Yankees told the Rockies on Thursday night that they would not be involved in a Jimenez deal, because of concerns about the pitcher.

It appears that the Yankees won't be able to improve their rotation before the deadline, as Joel Sherman writes.

• The Cabrera deal was an acknowledgment that Miguel Tejada can't be the Giants' shortstop for the pennant drive, writes Henry Schulman. The Giants clearly value Cabrera's ability to play short over that of Tejada, writes Andrew Baggarly, because the offensive numbers for the two players are similar.

• The Tigers made a deal that didn't have star power, in adding Doug Fister and David Pauley, but it might turn out to be a difference-maker for Detroit. And Detroit didn't have to give up its best young arms, as Lynn Henning writes.

• The Rangers' bullpen has been among the worst in the American League, but now they add Koji Uehara, who has 117 strikeouts and 13 walks as a reliever, and they could add Bell, as well, and transform their relief corps from a weakness into a strength. Texas GM Jon Daniels says he'll be satisfied even if Uehara is the only addition.

• The trade deadline suspense is growing in Atlanta, because the Braves' opponents are getting stronger and Atlanta hasn't made a move yet; they've been working on a possible Michael Bourn deal.

• If it's about getting maximum value, then the best time for Houston to trade Bourn is right now.

• The Diamondbacks decided 10 days ago that they would not trade any assets for a short-term rental, given the gap between Arizona and San Francisco. But the tough week for Atlanta, the wildcard frontrunner, may have emboldened the Diamondbacks and nudged them into taking on Jason Marquis and his salary to boost the rotation -- the Braves lost Brian McCann to injury and didn't land either Carlos Beltran or Hunter Pence to augment their offense. Arizona is taking its shot.

Marquis makes the Arizona staff stronger, Kirk Gibson tells Nick Piecoro.

• Hiroki Kuroda decided to not accept a trade.

• Ryan Theriot supports the Cardinals' acquisition of Rafael Furcal; Theriot's right shoulder has been balky and the Cardinals intend to make him the everyday secondbaseman. Furcal won't cost the Cardinals much at all.

• The Nationals also traded Jerry Hairston, to Milwaukee, while talking about the possible swap of Drew Storen, as Adam Kilgore writes. Davey Johnson addressed the possibility of a Storen trade.

• It figures to be a very busy day for the Padres, who are expected to deal Ludwick, Bell and Chad Qualls today.

• The Twins keep talking about adding a reliever, as Joe Christensen writes.

• The Orioles traded Uehara for two guys who could never fully establish themselves with the Rangers, Chris Davis and Tommy Hunter.

• Mike Aviles was traded to Boston; the Yankees had made a modest attempt to deal for Aviles.

• The Reds say they are not selling, but that doesn't mean they won't work out a trade of Ramon Hernandez, given what's in their farm system -- and the Giants are a perfect fit for Hernandez. Hernandez is trying to ignore the speculation.

• The Red Sox backed out of a Rich Harden trade, writes Scott Lauber.

• For the Mariners, the trade of Fister and David Pauley is just one step, writes Larry Stone.

• The Pirates traded for Derrek Lee.

• Was asked by a number of executives on Saturday: What do you think the Rays are going to do? So far, they've been quiet, as Marc Topkin writes.

• Domonic Brown is an untouchable, says Ruben Amaro.

• The White Sox are done dealing, says Kenny Williams.

• The Marlins continue to be in a holding pattern, with a full intention of holding on to Leo Nunez, Randy Choate, etc., because they feel like those players will help them in 2012, the first year of Florida's new park.

• The trade of Edwin Jackson may foreshadow some moves forthcoming for Tony La Russa and Ozzie Guillen.

• Pence made his debut for the Phillies.

• Houston GM Ed Wade doesn't get the benefit of the doubt, writes Richard Justice.

• Some Mets have taken the Beltran trade as a slap in the face.

And today will be better than yesterday.

Bourn deal.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Spoiler [+]
In a trade that sends Houston Astros center fielder Michael Bourn to the Atlanta Braves for a grab bag of prospects, Atlanta has done very well. Bourn is a significant upgrade for the Braves, a team in position to win the wild card despite muddling along with virtually no production from their outfield this year.

Getty ImagesMichael Bourn is an upgrade for Atlanta both at the plate, and in the field, where he covers a ton of ground up the middle.

Bourn's best tool is his glove -- he covers a ton of ground in center and is one of the league's best half-dozen or so defenders at the position. At the plate he has almost no power, but despite that can at least foul off better fastballs that beat most zero-power hitters, and he draws enough walks to keep his OBP up over .340; his OBP of .363 this year would be third in Atlanta's lineup. Bourn is probably worth more than a win to the team during the rest of the regular season, but this move looks like it's more about improving run prevention in the postseason while reducing the number of automatic outs in Atlanta's lineup by one. He's under control through 2012, solving one position for the team for next year as well.

The return for Houston however is shockingly poor -- quantity over quality, to say the least -- and can't do Ed Wade any good in extending his status as GM beyond "lame duck." It makes me wonder if Houston had a ranking of Atlanta's top 25 prospects but looked at it upside-down. The best player coming back to the Astros is Brett Oberholtzer, a command-and-control lefty who'll pitch at 87-92 mph with an above-average cutter and changeup; he profiles as a back-end starter, maybe a fourth guy in a mediocre rotation. Centerfielder Jordan Schafer is a former top prospect whose career was derailed by injuries, a PED suspension and mismanagement of his career by Atlanta; he turns 25 in September and has hit .217/.288/.286 since the start of 2009 between Triple-A and the majors. He could be an above-average defender in center in time, but the bat is a real longshot to play every day. (He's also currently out with a broken finger.) Right-hander Paul Clemens has a power arm, throwing 91-96, and will flash an above-average curveball, but the command and control aren't there and he has shown a huge reverse split for two years, getting rocked by right-handed hitters this season to a .284/.370/.460 line. Juan Abreu is a 26-year-old right-handed reliever in Triple-A with a huge arm (he'll touch triple digits) but well below-average control; he was signed as a minor league free agent, which means the Astros could have had him for nothing this offseason.

The package is just stuff for a pretty solid big league regular, nowhere near sufficient for a guy like Bourn who has a year and a third of control remaining and will probably remain underpaid by arbitration because the process overvalues power and undervalues defense.

As I understand it, you put someone on waivers, starting with the other league you don't play in, from worst to first searching for a taker. If one is found, they have X amount of time to either agree to a trade, dump him onto the team who claimed him, or pull him from waivers.

Personally I think we gave up way too much for Ubaldo. I understand the front office's belief that we have a legitimate chance to win the division with no clear favorites presenting themselves in the AL Central, however, the Indians paid a steep price with two valuable pitching prospects especially Pomeranz.

I actually wanted Ludwick and thought he would be a good fit in our injury depleted OF. Don't really understand how the Pirates beat us to it.

Nowitness: Are you surprised how successful Ogando has been in the starter role? I'm also surprised you guys gave up the original package offered for Heath Bell to obtain Mike Adams.

P.S. I told you Ellsbury has some pop!
