Rosenthal (FS):

Sources: Astros fielding offers for Myers and Wandy. As Morosi reported, Twins on Myers. Told Astros not that motivated. We’ll see.

If the Twins get Myers and Kenny ends trading Hudson for Edwin freakin Jackson, Kenny’s trading deadline moves would be a spectacular failure.

Nightengale (USAT):

Curiously, Lance Berkman had recently exercised his no-trade rights for possible deal with White Sox before accepting Yankees’ trade.

Nightengale (USAT):

white sox Sox GM Kenny Williams, the king of the trade deadline, is quietly exploring possibility of acquring Brett Myers from Astros

Fangraphs on Myers: 113 K / 42 BB, 3.10 ERA, 3.52 FIP, 3.78 xFIP, 2.8 WAR, 49.8% GB%, .294 BABIP, 7.01 K/9, 2.61 BB/9, 0.74 HR/9

Contract:

  • 1 year/$5.1M (2010), plus 2011 mutual option
    • 10:$3.1M, 11:$8M mutual option ($2M buyout)

Getting Myers, unlike Edwin Jackson, makes sense. And it has JJ’s approval!

UPDATE: Nightengale (USAT):

White Sox have Edwin Jackson included in current trade package for Dunn. If Sox get Dunn, then will try to land Astros’ Brett Myers

That would fix things.

White Sox interested in 1B Lance Berkman?
