Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports has a few hot stove offerings…
- Rosenthal names the Cubs, Cardinals, Rays, Phillies, and Marlins as teams with bullpen question marks. I'm thinking the Blue Jays might be able to extract something useful for their veteran relievers in a few months.
- Rosenthal speculates that Blue Jays starter Shaun Marcum would be attractive on the trade market. Marcum is under team control through 2012. It's not known whether the Jays would entertain trading Marcum for even younger and cheaper players.
- Carl Crawford should command at least $12-14MM per year and at least a seven-year contract as free agent, opines Rosenthal.
