Trades Update – Victor Martinez About to Move?

As of 2 PM this afternoon, the Mets have not announced a trade. But there are still two hours to go before the deadline.

Meantime, the Twins have acquired Orlando Cabrera, the Tigers have traded for Jarrod Washburn, the Dodgers found someone to take Claudio Vargas off their hands, and the Red Sox may be on the verge of acquiring Victor Martinez.

Roy Halladay, Adrian Gonzalez, Heath Bell, Scott Kazmir, and Mark Hendrickson are still property of the same teams they were with last night.

Wait …. someone CARES that Mark Hendrickson will be traded or not traded? How did that one make the wire?
