Rays unlikely to make any trades

July, 31, 2008
It now looks as though the Rays won't make a deal of any kind between now and the deadline. According to sources who have spoken with them, they have backed off Adam Dunn because he would make their lineup too left-handed, and they have been informed by Pittsburgh that Jason Bay is likely to go somewhere else.

The Rays and Colorado already agreed Wednesday that they don't have what it would take to get Brian Fuentes, if the Rockies decide to trade him at all. And that looks less likely all the time.
