The Percival Chase

My apologies to the loyal readers hoping for more posts this weekend - my wife and I are painting the condo.  Good times.

For those keeping score at home, here's a summary of Troy Percival's suitors.  He won't be returning to the Angels, but plenty of other clubs want in.

Though interest hasn't been confirmed, Devil Rays manager Joe Maddon thinks highly of Percival.  The Indians are another club where only speculation exists.  Let's add the Cubs to that list; Phil Rogers notes the team's interest in the 2004-05 offseason.  Back then, the Cubs wisely decided to open the season with LaTroy Hawkins at closer given Joe Borowski's broken hand.  OK, maybe not so wisely. 

Last week, two teams publicly showed interest in the Tigers and Phillies.  Now we know the Marlins are "closely monitoring" Percival as well.  It wouldn't be right to have a Marlin season go by without the club resurrecting a closer.

Speculated interest: Devil Rays, Indians, Cubs
Confirmed interest: Tigers, Phillies, Marlins
Not interested: Angels
