A few deals and a rumor:

ESPN: Three-team megadeal hits late snag. A proposed three-team deal involving the Boston Red Sox, New York Mets and Tampa Bay Devil Rays "hit a roadblock" Friday night, according to a baseball official familiar with the discussions. The deal proposed would have sent unhappy Boston slugger Manny Ramirez and Tampa Bay closer Danys Baez to the Mets, with the Red Sox acquiring outfielder/designated hitter Aubrey Huff and outfielder Mike Cameron, and the Devil Rays getting two prospects apiece from the Mets and Red Sox...read on.

I think the Red Sox would be making a terrible mistake trading Manny. He's such an offensive juggernaut, that even if they get good value in return his absence will hurt Ortiz and break up possibly the best one-two combo in the game.

And

The Texas Rangers plan to trade pitcher Chan Ho Park to the San Diego Padres for slugger Phil Nevin, a deal that awaited approval from the commissioner's office.

What does Texas need with another bat?

And

The Colorado Rockies have traded the outfielder to the Baltimore Orioles for outfielder Larry Bigbie, according to ESPN.com's Jayson Stark.

Another deal that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me unless this is the beginning of a few more moves for Baltimore.
