Earlier today, I wrote for Sports Rumor Alert that the St. Louis Cardinals, who are in need of a catcher, were interested in trading for Minnesota Twins' Kurt Suzuki. The Cardinals appear to be moving in a different direction, however.
The San Francisco Giants have a need for a starting pitcher now that Matt Cain is on the disabled list. Even before that, they were on the lookout for another starting pitcher, and have expressed interest in Boston Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
In a chat earlier today on ESPN.com, Jayson Stark said that the Giants "really want" to add another starting pitcher.
The Detroit Lions seem less than excited with their defensive superstar, Ndamukong Suh, this off-season. The Lions defensive tackle has been milking his success during his four professional seasons to try to negotiate a new contract. However, with Suh's franchise tag in 2015 already weighing in well above $20 million, the Lions' cap space is looking fairly cramped. ESPN journalist Chris Mortensen has claimed that the team seems less than optimistic about signing Suh to a larger contract moving forward.
