While the market has been quiet on him to this point, with the winter meetings approaching, teams are beginning to turn their interest towards outfielder Shane Victorino. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that seven teams, including th...

After Clayton Kershaw‘s 2011 performance, for which he won the Cy Young Award, I wasn’t sure I could be more impressed with him going forward. That’s not to say I was certain he had peaked, but it would no longer come as a surprise to me or anyone else. What impressed me so much about his 2012 season though, was the fact that he had another fantastic season...
You can never have too much pitching, but I think the Dodgers might take this notion a bit too far.
The Dodgers are considered the front-runners this winter by multiple sources for the services of Zack Greinke. With the Dodgers' rotation already full, someone is going to have to go if the team does indeed sign the right-hander.
The Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw...
I'm a HUGE Chad Billingsley fan, and though he's perhaps the most polarizing Dodger of the last decade this side of Jonathan Broxton - I leave out Juan Pierre because the love for him was insane to begin with - I don't judge him on body language or any garbage like that. His stats speak for themselves, and he's been a very good pitcher over his LA career, and one...

Adding some fuel to the Jon Lester trade rumor fire, Rob Bradford has a source saying that the Red Sox and Lester have not begun to discuss an extension. With just two years left on Jon Lester’s initial extension, signed back in the 2008-2009 offseason, now would typically be prime territory for extension talks. After [...]
The Boston Red Sox have had ongoing negotiations with free
agent outfielder Nick Swisher, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
The Red Sox have had ongoing negotiations with Swisher and
Boston signed free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes earlier this
offseason, but they continue to be in the market for another as they view the
veteran as a platoon...
So says the Red Sox' PR Twitter account (which is weirdly a protected account, so I can't link directly to the tweet).
Colbrunn is 43, and played 13 years in the bigs for seven teams on nine different stints. Despite his world-traveler status, he had a pretty decent career -- .799 OPS and .289 AVG, albeit during the steroid era. One potential concern? His OBP was just...
On a day dominated by the Yankees bringing back old guys, the Red Sox have their own bit of gossip, as Buster Olney tweets of Andrew Bailey's availability.
I would say this one ranks even lower in likelihood than the Lester-for-Myers rumor, mainly because Bailey's value is so low it's incomprehensible that the team would pawn him off.
Last year, the Red Sox acquired...
Jon Lester‘s name has been thrust into trade discussions.
On Monday night, it was reported that the Royals were interested in acquiring Lester from the Red Sox –– in exchange for top prospect Wil Myers –– to bolster their starting rotation alongside Ervin Santana.
On the heels of the trade talks, WEEI.com is reporting that the Red Sox haven’t had any discussions with...
The Red Sox announced that they have traded reliever Sandy Rosario to the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday for future considerations — either a player to be named later or cash.
A 27-year-old who spent the majority of 2012 toiling in Triple-A for the Miami Marlins, Rosario put together a pretty good campaign in the minors. The right-hander yielded just three runs in 26 innings...
The Red Sox acquired Andrew Bailey last winter in one of Ben Cherington's first moves as general manager. At the time, Boston was trying to replace Jonathan Papelbon, and had to do so on the limited budget that Cherington inherited fr...
The Boston Red Sox selected former major-league player Greg Colbrunn as their hitting coach. Colbrunn has chosen over Red Sox minor-league hitting coordinator Victor Rodriguez, former Arizona Diamondbacks hitting coach Rich Schu and Atlanta Braves assistatn hitting coach Scott Fletcher, The Boston Globe reported. He spent the past three years in the New York Yankees' minor...
The world keeps spinning. The Red Sox offseason is spinning as well. The speed of both varies greatly. The Red Sox have met with free agent first baseman and catcher Mike Napoli while also signing outfielder Jonny Gomes. They will continue looking at other outfield options at the moment hoping that they can find [...]
About 11 months ago the Red Sox traded Josh Reddick to Oakland in exchange for Andrew Bailey. Now, Boston could be flipping the closer again.
Bailey’s fourth season in Major League Baseball was easily his worst, as the former All Star underwent thumb surgery during spring training and didn’t make his first appearance for the Red Sox until Aug. 14. Once he returned he was largely...
