The Red Sox "aren't optimistic" they can convince Aaron Cook to stay put, as Cook is eager to pitch in the majors again. The veteran right-hander can opt out of his contract on May 1 if he isn't called up to the Red Sox Major League roster before that date. With Daniel Bard and Felix Doubront pitching well, Boston doesn't have a spot in the rotation for Cook unless, as Rosenthal notes, the club "does something" with Clay Buchholz.

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/ Is Clay Buchholz the highest value buy low guy now? he has a team friendly contract, controllable through 2017 (gaurenteed through 2015) and he has solid number 2 years in the past. What would you be willing to give up to get him? Is he the last piece the Royals need to compete for the playoffs in 2013? and last hypothetical question: Is GMDM savvy enough to get a solid Royals friendly trade to go through? (I think it's safe to say cherington is not one of those Beane type GM's)
