Rumor Tidbits

I've been looking for some juicy rumors so I collected a few for you readers:

"The Detroit News speculates that if the Tigers and SS Carlos Guillen don't agree on terms for an extension, a replacement will be pricey in dollars or trade. Detroit could deal a pitcher for a shortstop so the club will wait until Guillen's status is resolved before dealing any pitchers. Guillen may opt for the free agent market simply because of the exploding market."

"The Kansas City Star reports the Royals have no interest in re-signing veteran lefty Mark Redman, who remains available on the free-agent market. Redman was the club’s pitcher of the year in 2006 after going 11-10 with a 5.71 ERA in 29 starts. GM Dayton Moore said, “We’re comfortable with what we have at this point.”"

"Moises Alou told the New York Post he’s hoping the 2008 season will be his last. “I want to play good this year and that means the Mets are going to pick up my option and I'm going to come back next year and have a nice two years." When catcher Paul Lo Duca arrived at camp, he also expressed a desire to return to the Mets, as reported by the Bergen Record. Lo Duca had offseason surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left hand and is headed into the final season of the three-year, $18-million contract he signed with the Marlins."

"According to a report on, the Diamondbacks were one of at least eight teams that made overtures to the Yankees last season about acquiring third baseman Alex Rodriguez in a trade.
Diamondbacks General Manager Josh Byrnes downplayed the report.
"I really don't want to comment on it," he said. "The amount of discussions we have with clubs, we probably talk about every player on every team to some degree of seriousness. But I don't really want to discuss that or the nature of it in much more detail."
The report is basically moot, anyway, considering Rodriguez informed Yankees GM Brian Cashman last season he would not waive his no-trade clause, regardless of the destination. The other teams said to have made trade attempts include the Dodgers, Angels, Giants, White Sox, Cubs, Phillies and Indians."
