Nothing else going on, so how about the rumor mill? Coupla quick ones:

–Some voices within the Boston organization want to pursue Brandon Phillips, and move him to shortstop. That’s according to Peter Gammons. Gammons got something right once, I’m sure, but I can’t remember when.

Whether that’s a bunk rumor or not, moving BP to shortstop is a great idea.

–I can’t link to the individual item, because ESPN is still in the dark ages of web design, evidently, but on this page, Jayson Stark says the Reds are one of the clubs pursuing pitcher Noah Lowry.
