They should kick the tires on Fowler, he doesn't have a long term deal.
Rockies are beyond desperate for starting pitching. Maybe a deal that includes Mike Leake wouldn't get hung up on immediately.
And I have a feeling the lines of communication for the Reds and Rays are open. I wouldn't be surprised at all if a deal is made that we'll hear was first discussed last offseason or during July.
