I'm sorry, if they're not discussing names and it looks like it may well be possible, don't call it a "rumor".
I'd call it a rumor. By definition a rumor is something that has uncertain truth. There are issues with should it be posted or should it be said "some guy said such and such and I heard this that and the other" but that's really beyond the point.
But the title as it stands is true, or at least more so than the jokes you put up. Tejada said that he would love playing for the cubs. (WGN/http://www.mlbtraderumors.com)

They should be contenders (at least far moreso than the O's), they have a gaping hole at SS, and they have some top-tier prospects in their system. I don't think Boston can compete prospect-wise unless they dealt Marte, which probably won't happen.
If this deal went down, I think the Cubs would have to send Ronny Cedeno and either Rich Hill or Felix Pie back. Hill and Pie are the only prospects the Cubs have who are "untouchable," but it's funny how that word loses its meaning when Miggy Tejada's name comes up.
Oh, and just throw Wood's name out of the equation. He's not worth a dime right now. C-Pat maybe, but the Cubs would be far better off holding on to him and starting him in RF next year.
The O's could turn around and sign Nomar to a one-year deal for a fraction of what Tejada was making and either sign some other big names or hold off and save some money for next year's market.
If (and it's a big IF) Tejada gets traded, I think Chicago is the only place it could happen. That's just IMHO, though, of course.
Boston wouldnt necessarily have to give up "top prospects" if they are dealing Manny. Manny for Tejada would be the basic parameters of a deal. Boston may have to eat some of Manny's contract as well.
Its sort of a moot point now since Tejada said he didnt demand a trade. But if he changes his mind, Chicago would def. not be the only possibility.
