Rumors from the Winter Meetings

I'm not going to post links to all of these because many of them are just hearsay. With that said...

I've heard that the Mets are close to acquiring Erik Bedard, but if they want him they may have to pick up Miguel Tejada's salary. I would assume that they would swing Tejada to some other team (maybe the Dodgers or the Angels) shortly after acquiring him.

The Diamondbacks are interested in trading for either Joe Blanton or Dan Haren, but those talks are still in the preliminary stages. They definitely have the pieces to acquire one of them, but without Carlos Quentin to deal, it might be tougher.

There's a rumor that Scott Rolen might get traded to the Brewers for Chris Capuano, but there are concerns about both Rolen's contract and his health.

The Mets will be playing the White Sox in the second annual "Civil Rights" game on March 29. So there's that...

The Red Sox are interested in Brian Fuentes, says ESPN's Amy Nelson.

Elijah Dukes did end up getting traded to the Nationals for a player to be named later.

More to come later...
