on the ESPN.com MLB page, Vasquez is supposedly close to being traded. Does anyone with Insider know which teams are in the mix?

I have insider; all it says is that they expect a deal within the next 2 weeks; no teams are mentioned.

EDIT: I just checked Insider Rumblings, and the unnamed GM they talked to said he thinks Vazquez is going to Boston.

Vasquez wants a trade so that he can be closer to his family in Puerto Rico. He has submitted a list of 6 teams to which they can't trade him.

The unnamed source in Insider Rumblings says he thinks Vazquez is going to Boston because their GM was Theo Epstein's assistant and knows the Boston farm system well, and that Boston has young pitching to trade and Arizona wants young pitching.

However, this was probably written before Boston traded Anibal Sanchez. They'd probably have to give up Jon Lester to get him, which they probably aren't willing to do.

You're right. ESPN Insider is basically baseless rumors that they overheard. There are very little facts behind them.
