MLB Trade Rumors: Deal or No Deal? Updating the 12 Hottest Names on the Block

Could the Wahoos be on the verge of acquiring the top pitcher on the market? Signs are starting to point to yes.

Carlos Beltran, Colby Rasmus, Edwin Jackson and Kosuke Fukudome were all off the market before the weekend, taking their talents to new cities and new teams, and while the flurry of activity has died down somewhat today, there's no doubt that this lull is nothing more than the calm before the storm.

Saturday has brought a lively mix of action and reaction from a few teams. The Rangers pounced on the opportunity to pick up a top-flight reliever and dealt two players to the Orioles to get Koji Uehara. And the D-Backs, who are just four games back of the Giants snatched solid starter Jason Marquis from Washington.

The rest of the day should be just as entertaining and will likely feature moves from teams like the Boston Red Sox, who are closely pursuing Erik Bedard (although not as close as they were before his implosion last night), the Indians, who appear to be making some moves that might be pre-cursors to dealing for Ubaldo Jimenez, and the Atlanta Braves, who are hot on the trail of Carlos Quentin among others. And look out for the New York Yankees, who haven't talked a big game so far, but are still the Yankees.

There are still some incredibly big names on the market, including B.J. Upton, Ubaldo Jimenez, and Heath Bell.

All could be looking for new homes tomorrow, but for now, they'll have to settle for being members of this list, the 12 hottest names still on the block.
