The latest buzz

Still nothin’ doin’ on Halladay, according to both the Toronto Sun and Olney.

Robo and Morosi at Fox continue to beat the Victor Martinez-to-Boston drum.
And it’s a good drum, because it makes so much sense, given both
Boston’s needs, their young talent, and Mark Shapiro’s demonstrated
desire to take less than anyone else for All-Star talent (sorry, Tribe
fans).

But, tipping off the fact that Robo’s source on the Martinez deal is
an Indians’ source, he notes “Other, unidentified teams are believed to
be interested in Martinez as well.” Which is the trade deadline
equivalent of “sure, I have a girlfriend, but she lives in Canada” and
“I had another guy lookin’ at that car just yesterday.”

Alex Bregman shaved his mustache off in the middle of Sunday’s game

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
