I guess the Astros are serious about keeping Valverde

The Tigers are interested in bolstering their bullpen, specifically in the 9th inning and are looking at six "viable" options:

John Smoltz, Trevor Hoffman, Brandon Lyon, David Weathers, Chad Cordero, Eric Gagne.

Who is not on that list? Jose Valverde.

The Astros are seemingly willing to do anything to shed payroll...anything. But if Valverde isn't an option for a team that will entertain the idea of...say it ain't so...Eric Gagne...let's just say Valverde is probably staying.

Well, if Detroit is looking for help I hope they don't go after Valverde or Smoltz. Jose is the only piece of the bullpen that is reliable and being a Braves fan, I would like to see Smoltz spend his entire career there. I know he is a Detroit native so it could be enticing to bring him there too...
