FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles have offered pitcher Jimmy Haynes to go along with outfielder Jeffrey Hammonds for Japanese star pitcher Hideki Irabu, but that might not be enough to outbid the Seattle Mariners, New York Mets or Cleveland Indians.The Padres expect to complete a deal sometime today or tomorrow, and, according to sources, they are looking for a starting pitcher in the deal, to take the spot Irabu was supposed to assume. Seattle can offer pitcher Scott Sanders -- traded to the Mariners by San Diego during the off-season -- back to the Padres, along with another player.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Orioles have placed their bid in the San Diego Padres' de facto auction of Japanese star pitcher Hideki Irabu. But even if the Orioles can make a deal with the Padres, there's no assurances they could sign Irabu, who is saying he won't play for anybody but the New York Yankees.Officials from the Orioles and Padres spoke for the fourth consecutive day yesterday, and sources familiar with the negotiations say the Orioles have submitted a list of players available for a trade -- one of a handful of written offers the Padres have received.
