Here's your morning update, with a little over 30 hours remaining until the trade deadline. Josh Willingham and Kurt Suzuki continue to be the most talked about commodities out of Minnesota. Here's what's been said over the last few hours. Kurt Suzuki Suzuki rumors haven't changed much since yesterday's reveal that the Orioles were "out" of the sweepstakes. I still find that a curious position, but going by Baltimore's lack of a playoff history over the last decade and a half I probably shouldn't be surprised.

Baseball Reference Game Preview John Danks vs. Drew Smyly Another hilariously unlikely game last night, one that fell our way this time. What novelty will today bring?

It seems a foregone conclusion that Jon Lester will be dealt at some point before Thursday afternoon’s trading deadline, but might John Lackey be heading out of town as well? The Kansas City Royals, a source said, have inquired about Lackey, who is scheduled to start Friday against the Yankees. Because of a unique contract that calls for him to be paid $500,000 next season, a number of teams have checked on his availability. He'd seem like a tough guy for the Red Sox to deal, given all the uncertainty about Lester's future.
