Scratch One Name Off That Off-Season Wish List

Less than a day after rumors coming out that Jonathan Broxton wanted to play for a team close to his home state of Georgia, Broxton has already made his decision. And he won't be with Tampa Bay next season:

Shucks, oh well. Broxton would have been an exciting arm to get on an incentive laden deal, but it appears the Royals were willing to offer more money than any other team (around $4 million, according to Jon Heyman).

There are still a number of intriguing options out there on the free agent market, so Rays fans shouldn't lose heart. The list of free agent relievers that are still available runs to around 40 names, and the Rays only have one or two holes to fill.

Personally, I'm still waiting to see how much interest Joel Zumaya gets.
