08:09 AM ET 07.28 | Ubaldo Jimenez may be on the move, after all. On Tuesday afternoon, we heard an official for a contending team utter these momentous words about the Great Ubaldo: "My guess is, they move him." ... The Reds are in. The Yankees and Red Sox are in. The Rangers, Tigers and Blue Jays are on this trail. An executive of one club involved in these talks says he was told that two National League teams, yet to be identified, are working on this deal, as well. Other clubs are conjecturing that one of them almost certainly is Washington. So that tells us six to eight teams are actively talking to the Rockies, with four days left until the trading deadline. If you think they're all just checking in to get some tips on the best ski lodges in Aspen, better think again. "You don't do this with your best pitcher," said the official quoted at the top of this column, "unless you're ready to trade him."

I guess since Beltran has been traded the media needs someone else to focus on everyday.

It's in the Rockies best interest to at least see what kind of players other teams will offer for him. But with the contract he has there is still no reason to trade him for the sake of trading him.

The Yankees really don't need a farm system.

The Haynesworth story is the big news today ... even MLBers are commenting on the NFL thread related to this subject.

If anyone can turn that guy around...I would put my money on Belichick.

Defensive tackle...supposed to be a monster, but conditioning and motivation issues led to lackluster performances in Tennessee and Washington...the Patriots just traded for him, contingent on him passing a physical

Looks like the price for Jiminez is going to be higher than he's worth. I don't think we can afford to give up the few prospects that we have.
