Anyone have any ideas who this wild-card team is? Anyone hear any rumors about it? I would like for it to be the Sox, but Im not getting my hopes up.

"There are other conversations," said Minaya. "I did say yesterday there was a wild-card team out there. I did have a conversation with that wild-card team. I did make a proposal to that team. That team -- put it this way, we're pretty much one player away with this team. I'm not going to say who I'm closer with.

"They brought up a proposal today that I said, 'OK, we just have to hit on the next guy.' If we hit on the next guy ... I'm not going to say who that team is."

Interesting. It seems like the Yankees might be backing out and Theo Epstein feels that the Red Sox and Expos are not close to a deal (http://cbs.sportsline.com/mlb/story/6028915) , so this mystery team may just be the one to make a deal with Montreal.

Thats right. There is that Dunn/Lopez rumor floating around. They might be the wild card team.

Since the Expos are from Canada, will a deal make Kenny Williams the International Man Of Mystery (That's a man, man).
