These are uncomfortable days to be a baseball player in demand. The trading deadline is Tuesday. Rumors are flying and a player can be told at anytime to pack his bag and join his new team.

At the All-Star break last year, Ubaldo Jimenez went to the Rocky Mountains for some quiet time with his family. The rumors still found him.

"One of my friends sent me a text saying the Rockies are looking to trade you," said Jimenez. "That was two weeks before the trade deadline."

Thus began Jimenez's journey from Denver to Cleveland.
