The Boston Red Sox are interested in New York Mets outfielder Jason Bay. Jason Bay
He would prefer to sign with a West Coast team. However, he would only be willing to sign with two East Coast teams, which is the Boston Red Sox and the Cleveland Indians.
The Indians have considered signing Bay, but no contract has been offered yet. The Indians is managed by Terry Francona, who Bay played for during the 2008 and 2009 season with the Boston Red Sox.
He is looking for familiarity and an opportunity to play regularly. Boston is able to offer him a starting position in the outfield.
The New York Mets released him last week.

I remember the details. I’ve always been able to remember details. I will never be a Hall of Famer and will never lead the league in strikeouts, and am in no imminent danger of joining the 300 Victory Club.

Today in Coney Island, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon and pitcher Johan Santana, distributed boxed lunches to residents in Brooklyn that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
Afterward, Jeff Wilpon spoke with reporters and said that the team’s top priority remains retaining both David Wright and R.A. Dickey.
Wilpon says negotiations are “on-going” with both players.
He also added that...
The Mets announced they have named Jim Malone Strength and Conditioning Coordinator.
Malone, 45, was the Mets’ Strength and Conditioning Coach in 2002. He was the minor league Strength and Conditioning coordinator for the Kansas City Royals from 2000-2001 and the Cleveland Indians minor league Strength and Conditioning Coordinator from 2004-2005.
Malone spent the previous seven...
The Boston Red Sox have signed catcher David Ross to a two-year deal worth $6.2 million.
The deal was reached over the weekend. Ross was in Boston for a physical this week before it could be finalized.
Ross played 62 games for the Atlanta Braves last season, his 11th in the major leagues. He batted .256 with nine home runs and 23 RBIs. Atlanta went 54-35 in his starts at catcher...
The Mets are going back to blue in 2013, at least for a few games.
The club may not be ready to contend in the NL East next season, but they’ll be among the sharpest-dressed teams in baseball when they take the fields in their new alternate road jerseys.
The jersey also features the All-Star Game patch, with the Mets hosting the Midsummer Classic this season at Citi Field.
Now that it’s official that R.A. Dickey has won the NL Cy Young, hopefully the trade talks surrounding him begin to subside.
It’s sad that the Mets are in such a financial bind that they can’t find the money to lock up a Cy Young award winner to a contract extension.
Sure, the arguments for trading him make sense. His value is at an all time high, and the Mets could maybe...
Tom Werner‘s accomplishments in the game of baseball have not gone unnoticed.
The Boston Red Sox Chairman will be honored with the Dave Winfield Humanitarian award at the In the Spirit of the Game Sports and Entertainment Spectacular on Jan. 12, 2013.

Right before heading to their giant mansions and speed boats that can also turn into underwater compounds for the weekend (I don't really understand the lifestyle of the rich), the Red Sox signed David Ross to a 2 year, $6.2 million contract. You may not find that particularly noteworthy in an offseason dominated by Josh Hamilton's contract demands and Walt Weiss' managerial...
The home plate at Fenway Park got plenty of use this season as the Red Sox had one of Major League Baseball’s most productive offenses. Another productive unit will be crossing home plate again this spring when the Fourth Annual Run-Walk to Home Base Presented by New Balance finishes at the most historic of historic end points.
The fundraiser supports the Red Sox Foundation and...
Red Sox Nation surely wants to see Cody Ross back in Fenway next season, but the market for the outfielder may be much larger than originally thought.
Enter the Atlanta Braves, one of several teams reported to have interest in Ross. According to Fox Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Braves view Ross as a candidate to play left field everyday, with Martin Prado moving from left to third base...

The R.A. Dickey story has come full circle. Just three short years ago he was best known for a Chris Mad Dog Russo rant on YouTube. Today, he is the NL Cy Young Award winner and poised to land a multi-year deal at the age of 38. In-between there has been a couple of near no-hitters, a climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro and a personal memoir. He’s captured the heart of Mets’ fans in a...
Not even five months after the monstrous trade between the Dodgers and Red Sox that saw nearly a quarter of a billion in salaries changing hands, it looks like the AL East is set to acquire some payroll from a National League team. And the team doing the buying is probably not who you’d expect. Reports [...]
