Don't have much of an update, but thought you deserved some update.

We've been making calls through the day and what we are hearing is that the Orioles are making calls and listening, etc.

One exec termed it "pretty quiet," another believes it could go either way, that a Ty Wigginton or Will Ohman trade is still possible.

The sense right now is that Wigginton will play in tonight's game against Kansas City, that there really is nothing being offered that's worth dealing Wigginton. The same probably can be said for Ohman.

Again, we know things can change right up to 4 p.m. And execs wouldn't tell us something was "close." Because that would send us into a frenzy. So really it's just hurry up and wait as usual. Which is even more unnerving for the players than the media and fans.

In 2004, Wigginton watched the stadium clock at the trade deadline while he was on the field taking batting practice. And when it clicked past the deadline, he pumped his fist. Only to be told moments later that he was needed in the team office. And he was immediately informed that he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

So what we know now may not hold true in two-plus hours.

Hope that was helpful. And stay tuned.
