Astros/Red Sox Deal Cooking?
Buster Olney tosses a little trade rumor nugget out in today's blog:
"By the way: the Red Sox had multiple scouts tracking the Houston Astros on Thursday, at a time when the Astros are looking for a starter (Matt Clement? Wells? Arroyo?)"
Let's see here...what might the Red Sox want in return? Jason Lane to replace Trot Nixon? Seems that if the Sox need anything, it's a corner infielder in the event Mike Lowell doesn't pan out. I can't really find a good match just perusing the Major League rosters. Perhaps a three-team deal is in the works or it's something more minor.
