Found February 01, 2012 on RedSoxLife:
The rumor mill keeps mentioning Sox interest in Bartlett, but all reports seem to refer to this Jayson Stark column (emphasis mine): If the Red Sox decide this spring they don’t like their shortstop options, one guy who’s still out there is Jason Bartlett. The Padres have been listening on Bartlett all winter. But the Red Sox would have the same reservations that have kept other clubs from dealing for Bartlett: He’ll make $5.5 million this year, and he has a $5.5 million option for next year that will vest if he plays even semi-regularly. As we’ve seen all winter, the Red Sox are pushing hard to get under the luxury-tax threshold by 2013 at the latest. So they've been telling teams that if they add an infielder, it’s more likely to be somebody who works cheaper than Jason Bartlett.Right, the luxury tax. How much are bleacher seats again?
