Some serious termoil going on now. The Baltimore Sun has Andy MacPhail saying that there is no trade right now and Adam Jones is not headed to Baltimore for a physical. Geoff Baker reiterates his previous words here. Over at SI.com, Jon Heyman writes that there is still an excellent chance for a deal to get done. At Prospect Insider, Jason Churchill writes that the deal is 99% done. He is also hearing that the players going to Baltimore will be Adam Jones, George Sherrill, Chris Tillman, Tony Butler, and Kameron Mickolio. That's a lot. I hope the Mariners get Bedard signed to an extension ASAP. I think that that might be holding this deal up a little bit.

Big news from Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times. The Mariners have acquired LHP Erik Bedard from the Orioles. Shannon Drayer noted that Adam Jones had once again been pulled from Winter Ball in Venezuala earlier today. Turns out the Jones was actually traded this time. No word on any other players involved yet. Jones is heading to Baltimore for a physical tomorrow. The usuall players are noted, George Sherrill, Brandon Morrow, Chris Tillman, Carlos Tuiascope, and Wladimir Balentine. I'll be sure to add the players involved as soon as I find out.
