Trade Talk Tracker: The David Price sweepstakes is getting more interesting

The Stew's Trade Talk Tracker follows the juiciest rumors in MLB until the non-waiver trade deadline on July 31. We'll give you the day's most important links about who may (or may not) be changing teams soon.

THE PRICE IS RIGHT: The Cardinals want and need David Price. [USA Today]

AND THIS WILL HELP: The Cards got the No. 3 pick in the competitive balance lottery Wednesday, which could help them land Price from the Rays. [@BNightengale]

HOWEVER: The Rays aren't ruling out that they'll actually be *buyers* and not sellers between now and the trade deadline. Hmmm. [@JimBowdenESPNxm]

THE KEMP QUESTION: The Mariners, Indians and Rangers are interested to some degree, but are the Dodgers really trying to move Matt Kemp? [Fox Sports]

QUIET IN HOUSTON: Don't expect the Astros to be selling all too much. [CBS Sports]

BASTARDO DRAWING LOTS OF INTEREST: Phillies reliever Antonio Bastardo is getting scouted by Royals, Pirates, Blue Jays and Tigers. [CSN Philly]

MORE RELIEF: The Pirates also are interested in D-backs reliever Oliver Perez. [@jonmorosi]

FLYING TO CINCY? The Reds like Phillies outfielder Marlon Byrd. [@JimBowdenESPNxm]
