The Sox are taking the patient approach to the offseason, in stark contrast to what they did last year. It’s unsettling, but nothing out of the ordinary, really.
- He wasn’t the best or the healthiest reliever for the Red Sox, but Andrew Bailey still has some value. Thing is, how much would he be worth to the Sox? (Red Sox could non-tender Andrew Bailey)
- Mike Napoli‘s still the guy for Boston’s first baseman job, not simply because he’s good, but because there’s really no other options out there. (Red Sox Depth Chart: Mike Napoli still ideal at first base)
- The fallback for the Sox, Dioner Navarro, has signed on with the Blue Jays. The amount of decent catchers on the market is dwindling by the day. (Dioner Navarro deal eliminates one Red Sox option)
- Here’s a decent idea: why don’t the Red Sox look in to trade for Logan Morrison? Maybe not for the player himself, but to open up new opportunities. (Red Sox could trade for Miami first baseman)
- Even though the Red Sox haven’t really made a big push for a shortstop, Rafael Furcal says the Sox have taken an interest in him this winter. (Rafael Furcal Says Red Sox Among Teams Interested In Him)
- It’s about time for David Ortiz‘s Celebrity Golf Classic, and you can bid on quite a few interesting tickets and trips there. (Auction underway as part of Ortiz Classic)
- Billy Beane is a master at deals like this. (A’s Add Scott Kazmir, Keep Doing A’s Things)
So, naturally, Napoli has about all of these.
