Tom Haudricourt and Anthony Witrado of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel asked Brewers' GM Doug Melvin about an Internet rumor: possible interest from Boston in Chris Capuano. Melvin shot it down, saying he hadn't talked to the Red Sox. I think I'm slipping - I've been chronicling rumors all week and hadn't heard a whisper of this one. And I'm on the Internet!
Anyway, Melvin admitted that he might trade some of his pitching surplus before the season begins. I agree with MLBTR readers that Capuano is the most likely to go. Just seems like he needs a change of scenery. Salary comparison: Capuano makes $3.75MM, Claudio Vargas makes $3.6MM, and Dave Bush makes $2.55MM. Bush has a year less service time than the other two. The Cardinals would be a great match for any of these guys if they weren't in the Brewers' division. One fit could be the Rangers, who have an ailing rotation right now.
