11:24 AM ET 07.24 | The trade deadline is fast approaching. MLB teams are frantically trying to find that missing piece to help them make it to the playoffs. A report from the Chicago Tribune says that the Chicago White Sox turned down an offer from the St. Louis Cardinals for shortstop Alexei Ramirez. That report has since been refuted. That leaves a lot of this story in question. Are the Cardinals actually interested in Alexei Ramirez. Heyman discredits the Tribune report but says it wouldn't surprise him. That isn't convincing or riddled with proof.
