The rumor du jour had the Giants, Red Sox and Mariners working on a three-team deal. The Mariners would wind up with Manny Ramirez to play left field, the Giants would get Richie Sexson to play first base and the Red Sox would get closer J.J. Putz and center field prospect Adam Jones, among others. Seattle would, under one scenario, also land starting pitcher Noah Lowry.

If there was a pattern to be detected in the Manny Ramírez trade talks here, it was this: The Red Sox are focusing on getting a closer in return. Committed to switching rookie closer Jonathan Papelbon to the starting rotation, the Sox do not want a repeat of 2003, when they did not have an identifiable closer until GM Theo Epstein traded for Byung-Hyun Kim two months into the season.

The Red Sox are expected to meet soon with the Brewers to inquire about the availability of their former closer Derrick Turnbow.

According to someone who was at the meeting, Dodgers GM Ned Colletti told his people yesterday morning that a deal with the Red Sox for Manny Ramírez was "the longest of long shots." One Dodgers official rated the chances of a deal "at 5 percent . . . at best."

Casual interest in Jason Jennings has graduated to concrete proposals with the Rockies considering a three-way trade with the Cubs and Pirates involving young pitchers and outfielders Jacque Jones and Brad Hawpe.

Dontrelle Willis isn't going anywhere. That's what the Marlins are telling anyone who inquires about the personable and gifted lefty. The Yankees did call and so did the Mets and they were both told the same thing.
-- New York Daily News

A White Sox source said the team had discussed the availability of three-time Gold Glove center fielder Vernon Wells, who can become a free agent after the 2007 season. The Blue Jays would seek at least a starting pitcher and a center field prospect for Wells.
