Outfielders headline waiver trade deadline as teams prepare for September

(Getty Images)Major League Baseball's waiver trade deadline rarely results in huge deals, but contending teams can still make upgrades while heading into the final month of the season.

The Cubs struck first, picking up Austin Jackson from the Seattle Mariners. While the Cubs were rumored to be involved in acquiring other players, the team was unable to get anything else done prior to the deadline.  

Other contenders must have taken notice, as three more outfielders would change teams before the deadline passed. 

[Check out Big League Stew on Tumblr for even more baseball awesomeness.]

The Kansas City Royals acquired Jonny Gomes from the Atlanta Braves for minor-league shortstop Luis Valenzuela. The 34-year-old Gomes hasn't hit much over the past two years, but has consistently performed better against lefties over his career. He's not much of a threat defensively, so it looks like he'll mostly be used as a reserve/pinch hitter once the team reaches October. Gomes is also regarded as a strong clubhouse presence, and it's possible the Royals valued that down the stretch. There's no word on whether the Royals will utilize Gomes on the mound

The San Francisco Giants added Alejandro De Aza from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for pitcher Luis Ysla. De Aza's overall numbers for the season are underwhelming, though he's been much better since joining Boston. In 60 games with the club, De Aza has hit .292/.347/.484. He did so in just 178 plate appearances, so there's some concern about small sample, but it's clear the Giants think he has something left in his bat. Like Gomes, De Aza is expected to be used as a reserve down the stretch. 

Finally, the Los Angeles Dodgers picked up Justin Ruggiano from the Mariners for a player to be named later. Ruggiano began the year in the majors, but was sent to Triple-A after hitting just .214. Ruggiano has been more effective against left-handers over his career, and will likely be used as a platoon/bench option in September.

None of the moves made Monday are considered major, though all four players can provide value for their clubs down the stretch. For teams in a playoff race, even the smallest tweak can make a big difference in October.

RG3 blames intern for social media snafu, liking Dan Snyder hate page

Roger Griffin III is trying to his get his life, his career and his passwords back.

According to SB Nation, Griffin's official Instagram account "liked" a post from another user that slammed the Washington Redskins, their "sorry ass team owner" and dropped an #ImpeachDanSnyder hashtag for good measure (in case the subtlety hadn't come through earlier).

[Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today!]

Griffin then responded with a block-lettering mandate headlined "I JUST WANT TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT" and then went on to throw "one of the interns" under the bus for authorizing the previous like, saying he didn't have access to his own passwords. (An aside: Has Hillary Clinton tried that one yet?)

The always-blame-the-intern routine might work for other folks in D.C., but Griffin's approval rating is hovering at Rick Santorum-esque levels currently.

[Yahoo Daily Fantasy Football: Enter our $1 Million Week 1 contest]

Remember when Griffin vowed to quit social media? Yeah, that was fun while it lasted. Even two weeks ago when Griffin tried to be both deferential and confident in the same interview, it came out twisted. Why? It's because too often his cup runneth over and Griffin uses the pronoun "I" where "we" might be the better substitute.

But it's too late now. That ship has sailed; social-media posts can be unliked, posts can be removed and all that, but we know what the deal was in the first place.

Instead of an intern, Robert, we suggest getting an editor. They save our bacon on a daily basis.

DeAndre Jordan leaves agent Dan Fegan after controversial summer

DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers speaks to the media during a press conference. (Getty Images)When coveted free-agent center DeAndre Jordan broke a verbal agreement to join the Dallas Mavericks to return to the Los Angeles Clippers, analysts and observers wondered what could have changed his mind over the course of just a few days. Did the Clippers wage an assault to convince him L.A. was the place for him? Was their emoji science too tight? Was Blake Griffin's chair barricade just too strong?

[Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball]

While speculation over the cause varied and did not absolve Jordan of his mistakes, the most informed takes suggested that the shot-blocking, oop-dunking dynamo had felt pushed into the Mavericks deal by agent Dan Fegan, who has a longstanding relationship with Mark Cuban. The smart money said that Jordan would not retain Fegan's services for long after his reversal.

That has now come to pass. According to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times, Jordan has parted ways with Fegan and his fellow representatives at Relativity Sports:

Jordan informed agents Dan Fegan and Jarinn Akana last week that he was moving “in another direction,” said an NBA official not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Despite leaving Relativity Sports, Jordan still had to pay the agency the 4% it earned when he re-signed with the Clippers for $88 million over four years.
Jordan now has left three agents in seven seasons – Joel Bell, Wasserman Media Group and now Relativity Sports. He can’t sign with another agent until 15 days have passed after letting his former agents go.

Liz Mullen of the SportsBusiness Journal reported that Jordan's Clippers teammate Austin Rivers has also left Relativity to join ASM Sports, although it's not clear if his decision is related to the Jordan saga.

[Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today!]

Reports at the time of Jordan's decision to go back to the Clippers indicated that he felt Fegan had pushed him towards the Mavericks due to his relationship with Cuban. The two have worked together on several deals in the past (not all successful) and were thought to have orchestrated Jordan's move to Dallas in some detail. Jordan's dissatisfaction seemed clear on the day of his move back to Los Angeles, when he apparently did not contact Fegan about his change of heart and left a number of interested parties in the dark.

Jordan will now need to find new representation, although his new four-year deal takes away some of the urgency. Whenever he decides to make his choice, it's likely that prospective agents will want some kind of explanation of what went down with the Mavericks, Clippers, and Fegan.

Tyler Seguin called out by ex-Leafs CEO for 6 a.m. parties

We’ve written about a lot of shocking stories here, but perhaps none more confounding as what you’re about to read.

OK, deep breath:

A 23-year-old, who gets his summers off work, is having parties until 6 a.m. in August and failing to properly clean up his trash.

And that’s why we have capital punishment, people.

The true patriot who brought this story to our attention is Richard Peddie, former CEO of the Toronto Maple Leafs and a man who stands next to a brick wall for his Twitter avatar. At around 6 a.m. on Tuesday morning (when we assume the party ended), he snitched on Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin, who is in Yorkville this summer and has apparently been having some all-night ragers:

Clearly, Seguin needs to be the Zac Efron to Peddie's Seth Rogen and invite him to the kegger.

So here's a former NHL executive, trafficking in idle gossip about an NHL player, knowing full well that this accusation is a match to gasoline when said player was basically run out of Boston for partying like a 21-year-old.

But Peddie isn’t just acting like your great aunt as she clutches her binoculars and calls the police about “those suspicious types across the street”; he’s declaring that a 23-year-old having a 6 a.m. rager is predictive of anything other than that 23 year olds love having 6 a.m. ragers.

Hey, it’s not like the former CEO of the Maple Leafs would have any reason to tarnish the reputation of Tyler Seguin, a.k.a. the one that got away, right? 

Look, it’s hard to give any reformed party boy the benefit of the doubt in a post-Patrick Kane society, but I know 43 year olds that are loud and untidy when they have [expletive] all to do in the dead of summer – and they’re not even multi-millionaires. 

So outside of not being able to run for a seat on the neighbourhood board for Bloor Terrace or Yorkville Estates or whatever the hell, this is just Peddie, er, petty gossip.

And with that, we congratulate Tyler Seguin for being the rare player that’s getting run out of Toronto despite never having played for the Leafs.
