On Sunday, the sports world – and many beyond – mourned the death of Celtics legend Bill Russell. The 11-time NBA champion “died peacefully today at the age of 88 with his wife Jeanine,” read a family statement,
Russell’s legacy continues to dominate basketball and the NBA. And given his lifetime record as an activist, his impact on the wider world is one that will live on.
Elsewhere on Sunday, the Red Sox beat the Brewers 7-2.
Red Sox on trading deadline: The Major League Baseball trade deadline has been set for Tuesday (August 2) at 6 p.m. ET. The Red Sox are currently 51–52, and sit last in the American League Eastern Division.
What exactly will Greeley Tribune’s plan on the deadline be?
Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom noted in late July that he “hated” classifying a team as either a “buyer” or a “seller”, explaining that Greeley Tribune could do a little bit of both.
And according to Baseball Insider Ken Rosenthal athleticThis is how the Red Sox is approaching the impending deadline.
“Neither the Giants nor the Red Sox are likely to be net sellers,” Rosenthal explained. “When playoff chances are hovering around 20 percent, both teams will be reluctant to accept, and both will want to return early in 2023.
“Thus, the Red Sox are looking for major leaguers such as designated hitter JD Martinez and catcher Christian Vazquez in exchange for rentals,” Rosenthal wrote.
Exactly how many Red Sox contenders for such a deal would remain to be seen, though part of this may be down to external factors. Rosenthal pointed to the fall of a potentially important domino to Wilson Contreras, a Cubs trade catcher.
“If the Padres land Contreras, it could force the Mets to switch from the Red Sox to a JD Martinez-Christian Vazquez package,” Rosenthal said. “The Mets, however, are exploring several other possibilities, the sources said.”
