From Pravda:

Still seeking right-handed relief help, the Giants have accelerated their pursuit of right-hander Bob Howry, who became a more attractive option Monday when his former team, the Chicago Cubs, declined to offer him salary arbitration.

No arbitration? No second-rounder required?Then Howry is a perfect fit. His numbers for the last four years, courtesy of Baseball-Reference.com:

One of these things is not like the other; one of these things is just not the same.

He'll come at a decent price, he won't command a long-term deal, and his peripheral stats are still strong.

Brian Wilson, Bobby Howry, Jeremy Affeldt, Sergio Romo, and a scrum for the last three spots? I'll take that head start on a 2009 bullpen

Good rumor. Gooooood rumor. *scratches rumor behind ears*
