From Bob Nightengale of USA Today, via MLBTR:

The Oakland #Athletics,desperate for infield help,have jumped into trade talks for #Marlins Hanley Ramirez, joining#BlueJays and #RedSox.

I've got to rush and film the Getting Blanked Show, so we'll have to resume this later, but quickly I'd just like to say, it's probably nothing, probably due diligence, and that the very wise @MLBTRBen says that he doesn't see the Jays as actually offering the best package for him– though Oakland and Baltimore, he figures, could be aggressive.
