This time of year, quite possibly a trade. Not sure where, but since he was linked to both the Mets and Yankees in rumors I figured it'd be relevant enough to post here.
Marte was seen shaking hands with his teammates.
20 bucks its the Yankees for both
WPGB's Rocco DeMaro tells Rotoworld that a deal involving Xavier Nady is imminent.
Damaso Marte might be involved as well. The Rays, Yankees, Mets and Braves were among the team's interested in Nady, with Tampa Bay supposedly the strongest suitor. For what it's worth, Rays shortstop prospect Reid Brignac is not starting for Triple-A Durham tonight. He's someone the Pirates would likely ask for in a Nady deal.

Reid Brignac is NOT starting for Tampa Bay's AAA team tonight, per rotoworld.
Could be coincidence but the Rays were rumored to be interested as well.
Marte wont be a Yankee, we don't really need bullpen help.
If it is the Rays gotta give them credit, they are going for it.
I do think there is a trade, but I doubt it involves the Mets.
Looks like it's the Rays.

UPDATE, 7:51 p.m.: Not sure what to make of this yet. But Phil Coke pitched an inning for Trenton (striking out the side) then was pulled from the game. Might he be on the move for somebody?
Will Carroll has has Nady and Marte going to the Yankees.
Still no word on for what.
I spoke to someone in his family (Nady's). It's pretty abrupt. He was excited to take his new son to the clubhouse next week to meet the guys Nadys and Bays are very close. On the other hand, for him, playing in the last year of the House That Ruth Built has to be special. We'll miss him
Bye Bye Gardner?? I like him
