You could either file that headline under “Pointing Out the Obvious Possibilities” or “Most Vague News Ever”. In this case it’s more of the latter. Jason Grilli tweeted the following early this morning.
Early trip to Nashville. Long journey to get to this point but this is what I worked for. Will be a full day. #pumped

Based on those comments, we can only assume that he’s heading to Nashville to sign a deal. Tom Singer mentions that Grilli is expected to take the stage as a new owner of a two-year deal. At this point we don’t know who Grilli will be signing with, and honestly we don’t know for sure that he will sign today. To the second point, I don’t think he’d be heading to Nashville, and talking about his long journey to this point if he wasn’t at a conclusion. He’s been connected to the Cubs and the Brewers, and the Pirates want to bring him back.
I’ll keep this post updated throughout the day as more information becomes available. Also, I’m pretty sure it’s a law that when talking about Grilli I have to point out that former MLB player Gary Sheffield is his agent.
