Buster Olney sums up the known Troy Percival suitors thusly: Yankees, Brewers, Giants, Astros, and Rays. He obviously wouldn't close for the Yankees, but might be able to pitch the ninth for the other clubs Olney named.
The 38 year-old Percival is a fascinating story. He missed all of 2006 and joined the Cardinals this year and posted phenomenal numbers - 1.80 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, 3.6 K/BB. Suddenly he's primed to snag a closer gig again, if he wants it.
What do you guys think? I am okay with it, if he comes cheap and is willing to be a set-up man to Wilson. I don't think he will be willing to be a set-up man, so I think he goes to the Brewers.
