2. OK, if not Manny, who is likely to be traded midseason?
Torii Hunter is a free agent after the year, and the Twins don't figure to be able to afford him. So if the Twins fall out of contention before the July 31 trading deadline, there's a good chance they could deal him. Same with Andruw Jones. The Braves would like to keep him, but if they dive, they have to be realistic about their chances of keeping their star centerfielder. Those chances aren't good.
Pitcher Jake Westbrook of the Indians and slugger Adam Dunn of the Reds (no way Cincinnati picks up a $13 million option) are two others. Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki is a free agent after the season, too. All will be talked about in July. A bunch of closers: Bob Wickman of the Braves, Jorge Julio of the Marlins and Todd Jones of the Tigers
