Brewers Inquire On Wood

We learned a week ago that Brewers GM Doug Melvin has eight or nine different free agent relievers on his radar (apparently aside from Francisco Cordero or Scott Linebrink).  Four of the relievers are known: Matt Herges, LaTroy Hawkins, Ron Mahay, and Troy Percival.

Some new facts emerged today, courtesy of Tom Haudricourt (as usual).  Haudricourt says Percival wants more years and money than the Brewers are comfortable with.  I'm guessing that means $5MM+ annually over three guaranteed years?  Seems crazy but that's my guess on what he's asking.

We also learned a fifth reliever on Melvin's radar: Kerry Wood.  The Red Sox and Cubs are the frontrunners but the Brewers have inquired.  If Wood somehow gets three years...wow.

Browsing the available relievers, I'll guess that Keith Foulke, Jeremy Affeldt, David Riske, and Octavio Dotel are the other guys.
