Stark's Latest: Abreu, Arroyo, Hudson
By Tim Dierkes [November 13 at 3:41pm CST]
ESPN's Jayson Stark is back with a look at needs and plans for all 30 teams. I highly recommend you read the article, but here are a few highlights. He's also got a fresh blog post here.
The Phillies are eyeing Doug Brocail and Russ Springer.
The Mets like Bobby Abreu, but not his three year, $45MM asking price.
The Reds are quietly listening on Bronson Arroyo, and the Rangers may be interested.
Contrary to previous reports, Stark believes the Mets' first order of business is getting a starting pitcher.
Here's a new one - the Marlins are interested in Orlando Hudson?
The Astros may be trying to move money, and Stark implies trading Miguel Tejada or Jose Valverde could be one path.
The Rockies have "actively explored" signing Jeremy Affeldt, who could also wind up back home with the Mariners. A few more interesting names for Seattle: Joe Crede (if Adrian Beltre is traded), Jason Giambi, and Ken Griffey Jr.
