Rumorville: Jarrod Washburn

Lots of rumors floating around after the game tonight, I was wondering what people smarter then me would trade for Jarrod Washburn.

Rumors started up when in Ken Macha's post-game he sounded optimistic when talking about Melvin looking for a starting pitcher. Tim Dillard still hasn't been named the starting pitcher for Tuesday's game, especially since Mike Burns pitched today which rules him out for a Tuesday start. Coincidentally Washburn's next start is also Tuesday, leaving til Monday afternoon to get a deal done, if thats what they're looking for. 

Additionally, Tom H reported tonight that he "knows for a fact" the brewers are discussing Washburn and are hoping they can sign him after the seasons over since he is a wisconsin native. 

Also, Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times said earlier "I'm starting to doubt he'll take the mound on Tuesday night in a Seattle uniform," Baker writes. "A big reason why is that things are happening in Milwaukee and some decisions will have to be made in short order."


Clearly shortstop is the main target for the Jays, J.J Hardy comes to mind first but I'm sure the Jays would prefer Escobar since he would be available for much longer. I'm sure either way the brewers would want something else as Washburn's contract is up after this season. Maybe a almost major league ready pitching prospect for Escobar and Washburn? I'm not all that familiar with the M's farm system. Or Jack Z maybe goes for a few lower level prospects since it is in fact only a two month lease. 

Discuss.

Update:  Brewers pulled Escobar out of a AAA game today. His team was getting blown out, but the Nashville squad waited all the way until the seventh inning to yank him. 

Brandon Morrow has also been mentioned in trade rumors from the Mariners
