The Sox nearly satisfied Ramirez's request to be dealt away at the trading deadline in mid-summer. There were many rumored deals Theo was pursuing, but the most-rumored one looked like this: The Mets would have received Ramirez from the Sox and Danys Baez from the Devil Rays. The Sox would have gotten Mike Cameron from the Mets and Aubrey Huff from Tampa Bay. The Devil Rays would have received top prospects. The deal did not consummate, and Ramirez is still a member of the Red Sox.
