Rockies/Braves interested in LaHawk

Jayson Stark is tweeting that the Rockies (which we knew) and the Braves (which we didn't) are interested in LaTroy Hawkins.

This is bizarre. The Braves just got Wagner and Saito, and now have Soriano back. Unless they're planning on dealing Soriano (which sounds likely), why in the world would they need LaHawk?

That said, McTaggart has that LaHawk is on his way to Indy to meet with the Astros reps.

And again, just now, McTaggart says:
Hawkins will meet with Astros this afternoon with hopes of getting deal done soon, perhaps as early as today.
