According to baseball sources, the Red Sox are very agressively shopping Manny Ramirez, as his value has never been higher. "I wouldn't be shocked if the Red Sox traded him by Saturday," says one big league official. The Red Sox are expected to sign J.D. Drew by Saturday and will then be ready to deal Ramirez. The Giants, Dodgers, Padres and Rangers are involved with the conversations. The Orioles have spoken with the Red Sox about Ramirez recently, but their conversations hadn't advanced in recent days. The Indians and Red Sox talked last week, but those conversations are dead.
