In his latest column, 10 Degrees: Red Sox want to trade Josh Beckett, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports dishes on the Boston Red Sox looking to move starting pitcher Josh Beckett, the Miami Marlins desire to cut payroll, the chances of the San Diego Padres moving third baseman Chase Headley and much more. Let's take a look...

  • The Marlins aren't in "full-on dump mode," so they may keep Josh Johnson. But the team does plan on cutting payroll next year and have focused their efforts in acquiring young, cheap players.
  • Contenders and non-contenders have created a competitive market for Padres third baseman Chase Headley, but San Diego has yet to decide whether they will move the 28-year-old before the trade deadline. We looked at a few additional Headley rumors this morning.
  • There is enough interest in Kansas City Royals closer Jonathan Broxton for a deal to get done by the trade deadline. The Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants are among teams interested.
  • Passan opines Cliff Lee "is the perfect buy-low candidate for any team that wants a real ace," but the Phillies haven't shown willingness to move him -- yet.
  • Passan also touched on the Josh Beckett rumors as well as the Rays handling of right-hander James Shields as the deadline approaches.
