From New York Daily News Sources:

The Red Sox are in full pursuit of 1B Adrian Gonzalez.

The Padres are shopping Heath Bell and he could be added to a Gonzalez deal... if the Red Sox are willing to deal youngster Daniel Bard.

The Marlins are also in the mix for Bell

Talks continued between the Yankees and the Mariners for veteran LHP Jarrod Washburn. With Washburn's contract set to expire at the end of the season, the Yankees aren't willing to give up any of their blue-chip prospects for a two-month rental player.

Rumors from the Chicago Tribune

Look for the Cubs to add the versitile Marco Scutaro to play second base; in the finally year of ownership (finally!) the Tribune will hope to go out with a bang (or maybe at least one playoff win).

If Shapiro would expect to receive Buchholz, Bowden and Anderson for V-mart, he needs to put the bottle down and step back from the phone.

Rumors from the NY Daily News

It will be interesting to see what develops, but my guess is Victor Martinez goes to the Red Sox.  The Padres are just talking about Adrian Gonzalez to see if someone will over pay.  The Padres need at least one player to build around, and the Red Sox are not very interested in a .250 hitter.  They have that in David "PED" Ortiz.

The Indians will have to get some major talent from the Red Sox to pull off a trade.  Otherwise, they can wait until next year and get a multiple, high ceiling, low level prospects.  I would say the Indians would need Clay, Bowden, and Lars to get a deal done.
