Rays The Favorites for Nady?

From Dejan Kovacevic:

• Outfielder Xavier Nady and reliever Damaso Marte continue to draw the most interest and, for that reason, they remain most likely to go. But neither will be given away. Two prospects will be sought for each. Nady's prime suitors remain the Tampa Bay Rays -- who might be the favorite because of their wealth of prospects -- and the New York Mets, New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves. Marte's suitors are a dozen deep.

It wasn't too long ago reports were the price for Nady were too high, that same article states the same for Jason Bay's pricetag, meaning the block's top two outfielders are unlikely to land with anyone, including the Rays. As for Nady, I'm mixed, on one hand I think he's okay, but I still can't help but think Matt Murton is just as good.

Also I just found this note from the Beaver County Times:

Among the players the Pirates reportedly have interest among the teams looking to trade are Cardinals right-hander Anthony Reyes and outfielder Chris Duncan, Tigers first baseman Jeff Larish and outfielder Matt Joyce, Yankees right-hander Ross Ohlendorf, Braves shortstop Brent Lillibridge (who was drafted by the Pirates in 2005) and outfielder Brandon Jones, Rays right-hander Jeff Niemann and a trio of pitchers with the Mets’ Class AA Binghamton farm club — left-hander Matt Niese and right-handers Eddie Kunz and Bobby Parnell.
