Graziano's Latest: Schoeneweis, Rhodes, Pavano
By Tim Dierkes [July 30 at 6:51pm CST]

Here's a look at the fresh rumors from Dan Graziano of the Newark Star-Ledger.

* The Yankees, Tigers, Rangers, and Rays have talked to the Mets about Scott Schoeneweis. The Mets might prefer to acquire a replacement if they move Schoeneweis. Arthur Rhodes is one possibility if he doesn't end up in Florida. Geoff Baker believes it's down to the Marlins and Brewers for Rhodes, with the other getting Eddie Guardado.
* The Yanks might have to acquire a reliever now that they've dealt Kyle Farnsworth. Rhodes isn't on their radar though.
* The Ivan Rodriguez trade could kick off other trades for catchers.
* The Yankees have been getting calls on Carl Pavano. One unconfirmed rumor has the Mets interested.
A rosin bag would be too much for Pavano at this point.
