Gordon: Blue Jays strike again, land Price Live

Once upon a time acquiring Colby Rasmus from the Cardinals was kind of a big deal for the Toronto Blue Jays. But this summer the franchise is aiming much, much higher in the increasingly frantic MLB trade market.

First the Blue Jays landed pricey shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who teed off in his Toronto debut. Then they zeroed in on Detroit Tigers pitcher David Price, apparently edging the San Francisco Giants in the bidding for the top rental property on the market.

The Blue Jays are desperate to win right now. They will not take "no" for an answer. They might still be looking for more help.

With Price off the market, the Giants will be looking elsewhere for pitching help. Count the White Sox among the many teams looking for offensive help. (Right now the Cardinals aren't pushing hard for an outfielder, since the team is holding out hope that Matt Holliday could contribute by October. But that could always change of something attractive emerged.).

The Los Angeles Dodgers finally completed a three-way deal with Miami and Atlanta to bolster their pitching, adding Mat Latos, Alex Wood and the Ghost of Bronson Arroyo. The Marlins and Braves loaded up on prospects to fast-track their rebuilds.

Here is the latest trade chatter on the Twitterverse:
