ManRam not likely. . .

Just three more hours to go before the trade deadline.

ManRam not likely. . .


Just three more hours to go before the trade deadline.

Here's what we've got thus far:

1) Manny Ramirez is not an option, unless the Red Sox wrap him in paper, put a bow on his head, and give him away to the Phillies. The Phillies aren't just shooting down the Ramirez reports privately to the media, they have told the Red Sox they don't have strong interest.

2) George Sherrill and Brian Fuentes likely aren't options. The Rockies have played there way into semi-contention, and any deal to get Sherrill would have to be huge.

3) If the Phillies land a lefty arm, it will likely be either Pittsburgh's John Grabow, San Francisco's Jack Taschner, or Kansas City's Ron Mahay.

4) Reading short stop Jason Donald is a guy several teams around the league like and could be a nice bargaining chip now or in the future.

5) Pat Gillick said the Phillies were not interested in Tiger-turned-Yankee Pudge Rodriguez.

6) Jayson Stark is reporting over on ESPN that the Cardinals would be willing to part with Kyle Lohse for the right price.
