Rumors and Rumors of Rumors

I found this little news nugget that raised an eyebrow:

The Angels avoided arbitration with their top two relievers Tuesday, signing [Francisco] Rodriguez to a one-year, $7-million deal...

With Mariano Rivera nearing retirement in New York, the Yankees are already said to be eyeing Rodriguez as a potential replacement. Rodriguez could command a deal in the four-year, $38-million range."
With his eye toward the future, Cashman would not pass up the chance to snag such a great young arm if available. If there ever was a successor to Rivera's throne, this guy would be it.
