With the upcoming MLB deadline, here are some of the teams looking to trade away their players.

As the MLB trade deadline nears, several teams have key players that could make a great difference elsewhere. For the most part, they would be half-season rentals to be stronger playoff contenders. As part of these potential deals, these sellers will look to pick up top prospects for the near future. Take a look at some of the teams looking to trade away some of their players:

Mark Cuban Says Twitter Could Have Been Key to Signing DeAndre Jordan

By utilizing Twitter, the deal might have been able to be finalized.

Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban still hasn’t gotten completely over losing DeAndre Jordan to the Clippers, and now he has an interesting technique in retrospect. After agreeing to the initial deal, Cuban said he should have made Jordan change his Twitter profile picture. By doing that, it would have made the deal seemingly more done.

 

Titans and Marcus Mariota Finally Agree on Deal

Marcus Mariota will now have time to get prepared for the upcoming season.

After rumors spread over the Titans’ inability to sign Marcus Mariota, the two sides ultimately came to a resolution on a deal. The main issue at hand was having offset language, which would not require the Titans to continue paying him if he were to leave for another team.

Roger Goodell: You Hate Him, NFL Loves Him

You probably hate Roger Goodell.

 

He botched BountyGate. He bungled the Ray Rice scandal. His handling of Adrian Peterson was anything but perfect. Who knows what really happened in the Greg Hardy situation?

 

And it’s taking longer to sort out over-inflated footballs than it took to work out an Iranian nuclear deal.

 

But you know who loves the NFL’s commissioner?

Burning Questions as the New Orleans Saints Enter Training Camp

With training camp soon, here are some questions the Saints will need to answer.
Questions as the New Orleans Saints Enter Training Camp

The fact that the Saints missed the playoffs by less than a game, while sporting a losing record, is simply unbelievable. But that shows how up in the air the NFC South is, and how minor improvements can have drastically positive consequences. They ranked first in total offense and in the top 10 in points, but ranked near the bottom in total yards and points allowed. The offense should continue to put up big numbers, so the real question is how the defense can improve.

 

Brandon Phillips Dazzles with Behind the Back Toss

The play helped preserve a one run lead for the Reds.

Not much has been going right for the Cincinnati Reds this season, but Brandon Phillips may have made one of the top plays of the season. With men on first and second down by one, the Cubs’ Jorge Soler hit a tough grounder right up the middle that could’ve tied up the game. However, Phillips raced to the ball, slid to the ground, and flipped the ball behind his back to the bare-hand of shortstop Eugenio Suarez. Suarez then stepped on the bag to end the inning.
