MLB Rumors: Erik Bedard, Miguel Tejada & Brian Roberts

Following up on my post last night about the four-player trade for Erik bedard, I checked the local papers this morning for any additional information.  The Cincinnati ones had no new baseball stories since December 9th.  However, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun offers this update on the leading suitors for each of the Orioles' three big players.

At this point, it appears the Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Dodgers and Seattle Mariners have emerged as the leading contenders for Bedard. The Houston Astros have been the most aggressive suitor for Tejada, and the Chicago Cubs have honed in on Roberts.

While Mr. Zrebiec does not mention the specific names I heard yesterday (Joey Votto, Homer Bailey and Josh Hamilton), he does include the Reds as one of the leading suitors.  Maybe that 75% figure mentioned yesterday is as solid as it gets in the trade rumor mongering.
