Rumors, rumors, rumors

Jul 23, 2009, 10:51 AM EDT

They’re starting to fly like crazy, so we may as well throw them out there like so much pasta at so many walls:

The Brewers are supposedly “serious players” for Halladay.
I’m not buying it. For one thing, they went that route last year with
Sabathia and I doubt they’d do it again. For another, the rumor comes
from Jon Heyman and he’s pretty much always wrong.

Nick Cardafo of the Boston Globe
thinks that Theo Epstein’s little moves yesterday with LaRoche and
Duncan suggests that he’s going to make a play for Halladay. Maybe so.
Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea for him to try and turn Clay Buchholz
into a big bat while his value is still high, too, because based on his
first couple of big league starts he looks like he has nibbler’s
disease.

Morosi has a bunch of stuff:
The Indians may trade Cliff Lee to the Rays, though it could take a
three-way trade to make that happen. The Twins could use infield help
and may be thinking Orlando Cabrera or one of the Pirates’ guys.
Finally, it appears that no one is all that interested in Matt
Holliday. My guess is that he’s going to be acquired in exchange for
some magic beans right before the deadline next Friday, because the A’s
probably need the couple of million he’s owed more than they need the
draft pick he’d bring when he walks after ths season.

As always, these rumors are guaranteed to be 100% dicey, doubtful and dubious, or your money back!
