Royals GM ready to deal
Kansas City Star


"The Royals have been linked in discussions with San Diego to send Beltran and Randa to the Padres for third baseman Sean Burroughs, outfielder Xavier Nady and another outfielder, perhaps Terrence Long. Baird met Friday night with Mets general manager Jim Duquette. The Mets are looking to acquire an impact hitter, such as Beltran, but are likely to balk at Baird's price of third baseman David Wright. The Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs and Dodgers are also believed to be interested in Beltran."

Cameron's Stock Takes a Hit
New York Times

"While Kansas City's Carlos Beltran set his stance for future negotiations on Friday, Mike Cameron just tried to defend his place as the Mets' center fielder of the present and the future. The Mets are among a handful of teams that have expressed an interest in trading for Beltran, but the odds of their landing him have never looked so steep."

Soriano, Ordonez may be on Mets' wish list
Newsday


"Cameron can take solace in the fact that if the Mets hang around in the NL East race, they are more likely to target rightfield candidates, such as Alfonso Soriano, who would have to switch from second base if Texas makes him available, or Magglio Ordoñez, who recently turned down a five-year, $70-million offer to stay with the White Sox, but is on the disabled list after knee surgery

Will Mets deal Erickson?
New York Daily News


"With Scott Erickson's return from a left hamstring strain looming, Mets brass has considered the possibility of trading Erickson if success by Jae Seo and Matt Ginter allowed. But a night after Ginter held the Twins to one run in 7-2/3 innings and did his part (before the Mets coughed up the lead and were swept at the Metrodome), the Royals chased Seo (3-5) with two out in the fifth inning."

Pressure may be on Yankees GM to make a deal
New York Daily News


"Mariners righty Freddy Garcia has been linked to the Yanks for weeks and Pirates righty Kris Benson is readily available, but Cashman has said countless times he has not felt pressure to make a trade and wanted to wait to see how the market develops. Since the Yankees have virtually no realistic minor-league pitching options, however, he may no longer have that luxury."

You cant say that you blame them though. Everybody needs a really good player that they can start to build their roster around. I'd take him if I was a low budget manager or even if I already had another guy playing his position

Meanwhile, they are both reporting that Jon Rauch could be part of the
package the Whitesox would use to get Ortiz.

2) According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Jamie Moyer to the Yankees

Ordonez for Jones? Say it ain't so, Kenny deal
Chicago Sun-Times


"The Sox reportedly are talking about acquiring (Andruw) Jones to fill their need for a center fielder and sending (Magglio) Ordonez to the Braves, who are desperate for a power-hitting outfielder.

Wow, Andruw Jones for Magglio, that would be a huge trade.

Andruw is more known for his defense and Magglio his offense although they're both great all-around players.


I knew the Yanks would be looking for another starter but I didnt think it would be in June. I hope they dont get someone like Big Unit or Glavine, they're plenty full of all-stars as is. I'm still a bit shocked that George let Beltran slip away.


This would be the perfect time to deal Adrian Beltre, he's hot as can be right now. He has really struggled the past two seasons and is on fire right now, they'll get much more for him if they trade him now, especially since it's unlikely he'll resign with the Dodgers.
