The NL Central-leading Cardinals sent minor league outfielder Malik Collymore to their division rivals as part of the deal, announced hours before the non-waiver trade deadline.

The Mets finally landed the bat they were looking for in Yoenis Cespedes just ahead of Friday’s trade deadline, and Cole Hamels confirmed he blocked a trade to Houston before Philadelphia dealt its ace to Texas. Sixteen trades were made Friday ahead of the annual deadline for deals without waivers, but San Diego was among the buyers, not the sellers, to the surprise of some. Hamels was the only top starting pitcher dealt following earlier trades that sent Scott Kazmir to Houston, Johnny Cueto to Kansas City and David Price to Toronto.

With mere hours until the trade deadline, the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays have sent a clear message that they’re going for it – making big moves to try and propel their teams into the playoffs for the first time in a long time. The Astros haven’t reached the postseason since being swept by the White Sox in the 2005 World Series. Toronto’s playoff drought is the longest in the majors, with its last trip coming in 1993, when Joe Carter’s home run won the World Series.

The Astros have added another bat to their lineup as they make a push for the postseason, acquiring two-time All-Star outfielder Carlos Gomez from the Milwaukee Brewers. Houston also received right-hander Mike Fiers in the deal and sent four prospects to the Brewers: left-hander Josh Hader, right-hander Adrian Houser and outfielders Brett Phillips and Domingo Santana. ”This was a move with an eye toward this year, next year and the year after that, more so than five or seven years from now,” Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow said.

Eric Byrnes sat behind the large monitor some 90 feet from home plate watching the screen as the computer told him exactly what to announce for the intimate crowd watching independent league baseball at Albert Park, a full moon in the distance. The visiting Vallejo Admirals and San Rafael Pacifics were thrilled to be part of an experiment using the Pitchf/x automated system designed by Fremont-based Sportvision. The batter’s box is broken down into nine tiny squares, and a yellow spot lights up where the pitch goes, then Byrnes serves as the strike zone umpire by relaying the call.

As wonderful a game as baseball is, when you play it professionally you also have to deal with the business side of the game, which at times can lead to uncertainly and utlmately heartache.  For Wilmer Flores, the likely soon-to-be former New York Mets shortstop, the heartache was plainly visible as he attempted to do his job on Wednesday night. As the Mets took on the San Diego Padres at Citi Field, word began to trickle out that Flores, along with Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler, was headed to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for outfielder Carlos Gomez.  Obviously that word got down to field level and to Flores himself, and it was difficult for him to keep his emotions in check.  Surreal scene. Mets trade Wilmer Flores but leave him in game. Flores then cries on field while playing. pic.twitter.com/0CDpjGpwpS — Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) July 30, 2015 Wilmer Flores has been with the Mets organization since he signed as a 16-year-old in 2007, so it’s easy to understand the emotions he was going through on the field. He’s grown up with the team. He’s made a home in New York. It’s all he knows as a professional baseball player, and it’s difficult to grasp the understand that could end at any moment.  As the innings wore on, everybody waited for Flores to leave the game, knowing it would symbolize that a trade had been completed. But the anticipation, which around social media circles has been termed as #HugWatch, simply turned to despair as Flores was left on the field.  Not the biggest Wilmer Flores fan but damn you have to feel sorry for the kid #Mets — Ethan Anander (@AmazinAsthmatic) July 30, 2015 It’s heartbreaking, really. If completed, adding Gomez would be a major upgrade for the Mets struggling offense. That’s the side we always focus on. But the trade will also significantly alter of the lives of all three involved, which is something we need to consider more. Thanks to Wednesday’s rare and raw glimpse at just how stressful and just how much impact these moments can have, maybe we will.   More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.
