Jayson Stark reports that the Red Sox and Yankees are both very interested in Cubs left-handed reliever Scott Eyre. Steve Phillips just mentioned the likelihood of the Cubs trading Eyre as well. He's apparently fallen out of favor with manager Lou Piniella, as he has not pitched at all since being activated from the disabled list following a groin injury on July 23rd. Lou has instead used lefties Sean Marshall and Neal Cotts over Eyre.
The 36-year-old reliever has a 4.91 ERA in only 11 innings pitched in 2008.
Update-(4:20 PM ET): I'm watching the Cubs destroy the Brewers yet again, and Eyre is warming up. It's past the deadline... so yeah, he's obviously not being traded.
