    Kearns for Lidge would have been an interesting trade but no way Houston does that trade straight up. Lidge has way too much potential his confidence is just shot right now plain and simple.

    I really think Lidge is just one of those guys that in this situation, needs a change of scenery.

    I would've loved to have Lidge for Kearns.

    Since the market is so overpriced for relievers, it would've probably cost us our entire team for Lidge, and the Reds would've paid it.

    Update 20 mins ago

    Both the Astros and Angels are offering significant major-league talent for Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada, FOXSports.com has learned.

    Orioles owner Peter Angelos, who said last month that the team would not trade Tejada, could reconsider his position due to the quality of the proposals.
    The Angels are offering right-hander Ervin Santana and Class AAA shortstop Erick Aybar, according to multiple major-league sources.

    The Astros are offering "prime major-league pieces," a major-league source says, topping the proposal they made for Tejada last off-season.

    The Tigers and Dodgers also have shown interest in Tejada, who has emerged as a hot trade commodity in part because he is signed through 2009 at an average salary of nearly $13 million per season.

    The Angels, pushing hard to add an impact hitter, also are among the teams pursuing Nationals left fielder Alfonso Soriano, who is a free agent at the end of the season.

    But considering the Nationals' steep asking price for two months of Soriano, the Angels might prefer three-plus years of Tejada, whom they likely would move to third base.

    The Astros, who have become increasingly aggressive in their search for another slugger, would play Tejada at shortstop and include their current shortstop, Adam Everett, in the package for Tejada.

    The Astros' offer for Tejada last off-season was Everett, closer Brad Lidge and an outfielder, either Jason Lane or Willy Taveras. The talks died after Tejada rescinded his request to be traded.

    Lidge, who is struggling this season, likely would not be included in the Astros' revised package; the Orioles are happy with their young closer, right-hander Chris Ray.

    The Angels, sources say, made the second-best offers for Brewers left fielder Carlos Lee, who went to the Rangers on Friday, and Indians first baseman Ben Broussard, who went to the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Aybar, who is batting .314 with a .361 on-base percentage and a .480 slugging percentage at Class AAA Salt Lake, was the centerpiece of the Angels' offer for Lee, and the player that the Indians wanted for Broussard.
