Marlins trade Redman to Oakland. GM Larry Beinfest: "You want to try to stretch your payroll as far as you can. We were not able to stretch it far enough. This is part of the business. Mark Redman did a tremendous job for this ballclub. Thankfully, we have another starter coming back in A.J. [Burnett]." (Yahoo!)

Bad knee may keep Vizquel with Indians. They traded him to the Mariners for Carlos Guillen, but he failed his physical. (Yahoo!)

john: "phew ... Vizquel failed his physical!!! Everyone can now breathe a sigh of relief, ... Well at least until the next stupid trade." (Trident Fever)

Kevin: "I swear, I actually heard happy music in my head when the Vizquel deal fell apart. It was 'La Cucaracha.'" (One Hundred Sixteen)

Yankees complete trade for Javier Vizquel. That's what it says. They mean Vazquez, obviously, but I guess everyone has Omar on their mind. Nick Johnson passed his physical (swung a bat and didn't break any bones). (Boston Globe)

Guillen says he has deal with Angels. Two years, $6 million for Jose. (Yahoo!)

Boston acquires Bellhorn for player to be named. "The Red Sox may seek other second-base candidates, but Bellhorn wants to win the job. He also can be a utility player after playing all four infield positions and in the outfield each of the past two seasons. His acquisition could end Damian Jackson's one-year stint as Boston's utility infielder and outfielder." (Yahoo!)

Slowly but surely: Sox, A-Rod inch closer to blockbuster trade. Step by step...Inch by inch... (Boston Herald)

Changing Sox: Nomar is headed to Chicago for Ordoñez. "The Red Sox moved a gigantic step closer to finishing the long-awaited trade for superstar Alex Rodriguez when they agreed yesterday to send shortstop Nomar Garciaparra to the White Sox for outfielder Magglio Ordoñez, contingent upon completion of the Rodriguez-for-Manny Ramirez megadeal, National League sources told Newsday yesterday."
