This was on Mlbtraderumors today...Manny, Vlad Progressing Toward Deals By Ben Nicholson-Smith [January 20 at 4:44pm CST]
Manny Ramirez and Vladimir Guerrero may not be on our free agent list much longer. Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes hears from various sources that both players are moving toward deals (link in Spanish). One source tells Rojas that Ramirez is likely to sign by the beginning of next week.
The Angels, Twins, Rangers, Rays and Blue Jays have shown some interest in Ramirez, but Minnesota just added Jim Thome and is no longer interested. The Angels, Rangers and Rays are pursuing him most aggressively. Rojas hears that Manny wants to prove himself after a disappointing season; money, it seems, is not the slugger's primary concern.
A person close to Guerrero told Rojas that the Orioles have the inside track on signing him, but the Angels are another possibility.
