SIX INCHES OF SNOW, BUT THE STOVE IS HOT:
A Tejada-for-Ramirez Trade Might Not Be Far-Fetched (Jorge Arangure Jr., December 10, 2005, Washington Post)
In private conversations on Friday between the Orioles and Miguel Tejada's representatives, the shortstop's trade demand first surfaced and Baltimore, according to one team source, has begun listening to offers for their superstar. The Boston Red Sox, likely offering Manny Ramirez, could be a suitor, and the idea of a Tejada for Ramirez deal has not been dismissed by Baltimore. Several teams have already expressed interest but Boston may be the best fit.
"It is a logical suggestion," one team official said of the Tejada-for-Ramirez possibility. "It does seem unlikely. But who knows?" [...]
The Red Sox have already made overtures, and Angelos said he wouldn't have a problem trading Tejada to an American League East team if that's what the front office desired.
