Angels acquired 2B Gordon Beckham from the White Sox for a player to be named later or cash.
On a day where their pitching depth took a major hit, the Angels shored up their middle infield depth with the addition of Beckham. The former hot-prospect, busted out with the Pale Hose in just his second year with them and he hasn't been able to recover since. Perhaps a change of scenery will help, but he'll be serving as the primary back-up infielder. How many at-bats he sees is not yet known.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Dallas Cowboys are hold off on placing Tony Romo on Injured Reserve in hopes of still making the playoffs.
Oh Jerry. Look, the most reductive outlook you could possibly have on Dallas' playoff chances is that the Cowboys are only two games out of the division lead. But that's ignoring the fact that they're also tied for the worst record in NFC and just one win better that the two worst teams in the league. If the Cowboys were smart, they'd be taking the perspective that they have a very, very good shot of getting a great draft pick. But it sounds like they're taking an approach that's going to cost them draft slots on the belief that Matt Cassel is leading them to the playoff. Freakin' Jerry. Analysis: Brett Talley
Chandler Parsons is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game.
Parsons has been sitting out in back-to-backs this season and will apparently continue to do so for now. The last time Parsons sat, Dirk, Felton, Williams and Matthews all played over 35 minutes, and no other bench guys saw even 20 minutes in Parsons' absence. So if you're looking for an uptick in usage for any Mavs, you should probably count on the other starters getting the extra work. Analysis: Brett Talley
