Well, the time has come. The trade dead line is rapidly approaching this afternoon. Here is what's on the burner:
-Manny Ramirez may be dealt to the Marlins today in a three-way trade w/ Pittsburgh. Also involved with this deal: Jason Bay (.282, 22 hr's, 64 rbi's) to the Sox, and Florda's Hermida to the Pirates. Sources close to the BoSox are saying it's "less than 50/50 chance".
-Ken Griffey Jr. to the White Sox? Yea right! Right? This time this rumor IS true. The Reds have reportedly agreed to trade the aging right fielder to Chicago. For the last 4 years now, there have been rumors about this deal. This deal has now been confirmed, pending Griffey's approval. Which I am sure he will give the nod to.
-Mark Teixeira was dealt to the Angels on Monday.
-Rightfield Bleachers reported yesterday that Mike Rivera could be dealt.
-Ivan Rodriguez was sent to the Yankees for reliever Kyle Farnsworth yesterday afternoon. This seems to be a Yankee win if you ask me.
I think today will be a quiet day for the Crew in trades. They need to wake up for the game this afternoon though!
