Re: with Tejada staying put

Apparently Miguel Tejada has told the O's that he doesn't want to be

The RedSox have pretty much concluded that Manny is not going
anywhere.

My guess is that the Sox, still w/o a SS, will send Marte to TB for
Lugo.  TB then needs a SS and has been one of the few teams to not
laugh when Omar mentions Kaz Matsui.

Omar may still want Baez but probably can't get him w/o offering
Heilman which, to date, he has not been willing to do.

Clearly the endgame is murky but Tejada's move (or non-move as it is)
may give the Mets one last chance to dump Kaz somewhere.



From your fingers to Omar's ears.
