Red Sox Ready to Move On without Bay

The Red Sox are still confident that they can hit well enough during the 1st half of the 2010 MLB schedule to stay in the thick of the playoff race.  The Red Sox expect Casey Kotchman to get a lot of time at 1st base with Kevin Youkilis moving over to 3rd base while Mike [...]

Closure on Bay Front – Slugger Signs with Mets

At least he isn’t in the AL.  Jason Bay signed with the New York Mets today, bringing some closure to the Red Sox pursuit of the free agent slugger.  Bay played a great year and a half for the Red Sox, but his age and the dollar amount desired proved too much for the Red [...]

Jason Bay Update – Sort of…

As we reported over the weekend, the Red Sox have considered making another run at Jason Bay to play left field in front of the Green Monster at Fenway Park.  With the new $15.5 million Mike Cameron deal and J.D. Drew still on the books at $14 million per season for the next 2 seasons, [...]

Red Sox Could Up Offer to Jason Bay?!

Rumors out of “free agent camp” are that the Red Sox could up their offer for Jason Bay to keep playing left field in front of the Green Monster at Fenway Park.  Supposedly, the Red Sox had offered Bay a 4-year, $60 million deal at some point this year.  The Red Sox could be willing [...]

Mixed Boat with John Lackey

With the 5-year, $82.5+ million deal on the books with John Lackey, the Red Sox have answered the call made by the New York Yankees in 2008 when they signed both CC Sabathia and A. J. Burnett off the free agent market.  Sabathia and Burnett combined to win 32 games for the Yankees in 2009 [...]

Red Sox Have Competition for Jason Bay – Mets Enter Sweepstakes

The New York Mets have offered a contract to Jason Bay, thereby entering into the sweepstakes for the free agent slugger.  Bay (36 HR’s and 119 RBI’s for the Red Sox in 2009) and Matt Holliday are considered the 2 top free agent outfielders on the market right now.  The Red Sox would love to [...]

Red Sox Acquire Boof Bonser; No News on Bay, Lowell

The Boston Red Sox acquired pitcher Boof Bonser from the Minnesota Twins today for a player to be named later.  Bonser did not pitch for the Twins in 2009 due to right shoulder surgery that he had in February.  In his last full season in the big leagues, Bonser appeared in 47 games for the [...]

Jason Bay Still Red Sox, Theo’s Top Priority; Yankees Land Garnderson

GM Theo Epstein and the Red Sox still maintain that signing Jason Bay is their top priority.  While the left field slugger is high demand (the Angels, Mets and Mariners have all expressed interest in Bay), the Red Sox hope they have what it takes to bring back Bay to Boston – how’s that for [...]

Red Sox Wish List for 2010 MLB Team

Now that the Red Sox have their starting shortstop, they need to turn their attention to the rest of the roster. Even with an already-potent lineup, the Red Sox need to solidify their left position by signing either Jason Bay or Matt Holliday. The Red Sox are even open to acquiring another bat – potentially [...]

Red Sox Offer Arbitration to Jason Bay & Billy Wagner

The Boston Red Sox have offered salary arbitration to each of Jason Bay and Billy Wagner.  The Red Sox declined to offer either Rocco Baldelli or Paul Byrd salary arbitration. If either player declines arbitration from the Red Sox and then signs with another team, the Red Sox will receive 2 compensatory draft picks in [...]
