    Doesn't seem like they're very interested in a reunion...

    It seems less likely that the Rays are interested in bringing back Josh Hamilton, who is being made available by the Reds.

    Then there's this

    The free agent market isn't very promising and the trade market doesn't appear particularly deep, but one interesting name being speculated upon in the media room is former Ray Josh Hamilton.

    The Reds need starting pitching, which the Rays have in some excess, but the question would be whether the Rays want to revisit Hamilton's past, as the No. 1 draft pick whose career was nearly ruined by drugs, then resurrected after he was lost in last year's Rule 5 draft as he made an amazing comeback to play in the big leagues.

    In the end, maybe....but the Reds name is very rarely involved in the conversation - that's why this winter, is at least, more interesting.

    Yeah, remember when someone suggested we were in the running for Cordero, the best pitcher available on the FA market?

    MLBTradeRumors.com --

    Marc Lancaster says there's a 50/50 chance the Rays make some kind of deal before leaving Nashville. He thinks it could be the right fielder or utility guy they're after.

    There hasn't been much trade buzz around the Rays lately, though Marc Topkin speculated on Josh Hamilton today.
