Random Rumors: Glavine, Cordero, Percival

Let's kick things off today with one of those posts packed with random rumors.

  • Tom Glavine's agent Gregg Clifton meets with Braves' GM Frank Wren this afternoon.  They'll talk money.  Wren is expected to offer $8-10MM for '08 plus a mutual option for '09.  Glavine isn't a lock for the Braves - three other teams are interested.  The pool includes the Mets, Phillies, Nationals, Cardinals and Astros.
  • Reds beat writer John Fay recently suggested the Reds might have a payroll around $75MM, giving them only $6MM to spend.  But now Fay is saying he thinks the Reds might go past $75MM.  He believes the Reds will strike quickly with a focus on relief help - maybe even Francisco Cordero.  The Brewers made an offer to Cordero Monday, and the Astros and Royals ar expected to be in the mix as well.
  • Previously it was noted that eight teams were in on Troy Percival, four of which were considering him at closer.  Now we're up to ten clubs, and the Rays are having serious talks with his agent.  The Astros may also be in the mix.
