Marshall to the Browns or Ravens?
The rumor mill continues to churn regarding potential destinations for Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall. Last night, we heard that the Ravens might be interested. We're hearing rumblings of Brandon possibly being traded to the Browns. The package would include, per the rumor, Browns kick returner/receiver Josh Cribbs and one or more draft picks. Such a move also would likely put Braylon Edwards in play for a trade elsewhere.
Rockets trying to move McGrady
Houston also seems to be very active in trade talk, particularly in trying to move Tracy McGrady we're told. McGrady will be out for the first 20-30 games of the regular season, but there is some thought that he might be able to help a playoff team down the stretch, particularly since he's in a contract year. Its tough to see how many teams would be able to absorb the 20+ million dollars he's owed next season. The New York Knicks might be one of them. Houston would be looking for a shooting guard in return.
Red Sox, Rangers talked trade
Brad Penny and Manny Delcarmen have been the pitchers most often named in trade rumors as the Red Sox try to figure out how to best utilize their overstocked staff. But according to one report, Takashi Saito could be the Sox hurler who is eventually dealt. According to FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox spoke the the Texas Rangers about dealing Saito, the 39-year-old relief pitcher with a lifetime 2.00 ERA, in exchange for first baseman/designated hitter Hank Blalock. While that deal was put on hold after the Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton suffered a hernia -- Blalock's presence in the lineup became essential after Hamilton was sidelined for what is expected to be six weeks -- Rosenthal noted that Saito has been in demand by a number of teams.
