Crawford To Cubs Rumor Shot Down

ESPN 1000’s Bruce Levine suggested yesterday that the Cubs were preparing an offer for Carl Crawford.  However, team officials told Roger Mooney today that there’s nothing brewing.  Apparently the rumor was Rich Hill, Eric Patterson, and a prospect for Crawford.  That doesn’t seem sufficient anyway.  There was even some talk of a three-way deal involving the Brewers and Yankees, which was from Gotham Baseball.  According to Mooney, none of it is for real.  You be the judge.

In other Rays news, they picked up Al Reyes‘ $2.3MM option and passed on Greg Norton at $1MM.  No surprises there. UPDATE: Reyes actually has a $1MM base salary plus $1.3MM in incentives.
