VMart Trade Thread

ESPN.com wrote:Now that the Indians have traded Cliff Lee, rival executives fully expect Cleveland to deal All-Star catcher Victor Martinez in the 48 hours before the trade deadline.

"I don't think they'd move one without thinking about moving the other," said an AL official.
...
The Boston Red Sox have had extensive talks with the Indians about Martinez, and even after acquiring Adam LaRoche from the Pittsburgh Pirates last week, they still have interest -- although it is not exactly clear how the Red Sox would squeeze in playing time for all the players who would be affected by a trade for Martinez, most notably third baseman Mike Lowell.

The Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers have also been talking with other teams about acquiring a hitter.

any of those 3 teams would be nice. sox have the prospects to make it happen. not sure about the other two. vmart in arlington is intriguing. also vmart and mcab back to back would be pretty slick as well.

Can't wait to see him get traded to a better lineup.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Rumor (gasp) had it the Sox turned down Buchholz straight up for him, so unless they plan on going Bowden/Kalish or something similar I don't think the Indians look this way. Unless of course they ask for a package similar to what they got for Lee, I think they can find a bag of used balls out back and make it work :-b
Also after acquiring LaRoche I agree with the sentiment that they don't have the room for all these batters. It's not like Lowell's having a terrible season.

Texas has arguably the top farm system in baseball right now. They have plenty to deal. Of course, why they'd spend on another bat rather than an impact arm is beyond me...

Especially a C/1b bat (Salty, Max Ramirez, Smoak, Davis, Blalock). The Rangers will not trade for him, I'm confident of that much.
