There is something of interest in the Teixeira report, though. Sure, we do not know whether he is actually going to...
Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Wednesday night it is "unlikely" the team will add a starting pitcher at this point despite a source saying the team has a "great chance" to sign Roy Oswalt.
