Yesterday Bob Nightengale of USA Today said that the Astros were shopping closer Brett Myers. Today Astros GM Jeff Lunhow says nopers:
Astros GM Jeff Luhnow told FOX 26 Sports there’s nothing to a report in USA Today that closer Brett Myers is on the trading block.

Seems rather early for people to be shopping closers. Don’t you wait until someone is desperate? And no, I don’t count the Giants as desperate yet given that they have viable in-house options to replace Brian Wilson.
