Baseball Trade Rumor Central
The mainstream media has picked up the internet story that was reported here over the weekend-4 Team deal involving the Sox, DRays, Orioles, and Mets. Anna Benson must be seeing her career amibitions crashing right before her eyes.

Anna, Get Your Gun
A blockbuster four-team trade rumor has disgruntled Manny Ramirez coming to the Mets from Boston and reliever Danys Baez from the Devil Rays. The Red Sox would get shortstop Miguel Tejada from Baltimore and center fielder Joey Gathright from the D-Rays. Baltimore would get Julio Lugo from Tampa as its shortstop and possibly starters Kris Benson from the Mets and Matt Clement from the Sox. The Rays would get cheap players with big upsides as well as prospects, such as Aaron Heilman and Jae Seo from the Mets.
-- New York Daily News

O's Will Lament Acquiring Matt Clement
The Orioles' goal is to obtain at least two significant big-league pieces for Tejada. Boston's offer of Ramirez and Clement wasn't dismissed immediately, but it should be. The Orioles see Clement as talented but classically underachieving, a la Benson. While the Cubs are willing to deal Mark Prior, whose value decreased with durability questions, the Orioles are more interested in Carlos Zambrano or Derrek Lee, who haven't been offered.

Please Ride Your High Horse To Boston,
Mrs. Glaus
One high-ranking major league executive who monitored Arizona's unloading of Troy Glaus to Toronto said, ''He really wanted to go to Boston." With two third basemen on the roster and no center fielder or shortstop, the Red Sox realized they couldn't burn potential trade pieces on Glaus, as much as they've long salivated over putting his swing in Fenway Park.
-- Boston Globe

A Deal With The Devil
No one with the Red Sox will publicly admit this, but the Devil Rays, according to multiple baseball executives, are no easier to deal with in trade talks than they were under former GM Chuck LaMar. Tampa Bay continues to seek the Sox' top non-pitching prospect, third baseman Andy Marte, in exchange for Lugo, who hit .295 and stole 39 bases last season but becomes a free agent at season's end.
