SI Story

Don't think Adam has posted this story and if so sorry for the repeat.  Some interesting comments about Tex. (Still don't know the italics function)

Potentially, the five biggest names who could hit the trade market are Alex Rodriguez, Vernon Wells, Manny Ramirez, Miguel Tejada and Mark Teixeira. Though it's much more likely that all five stay put than all five go, a quickie poll of executives suggests that the order of the likeliest to be traded, from most likely to least, may be: 1. Wells. 2. Teixeira. 3. Tejada. 4. Ramirez. 5. A-Rod.

A Tejada-for-Teixeira trade has been discussed, but the Rangers wanted Baltimore to sweeten the pot by including top young pitcher Erik Bedard. Teixeira's weak first-half performance has Texas at least considering whether to trade him rather than commit to a long-term contract that may approach $100 million. Some execs could see Teixeira going to Detroit for, say Jeremy Bonderman, who, like Teixeira, is two years away from free agency. But one executive said, "If I were Detroit, I wouldn't do that."
