Ken Rosenthal, your favorite hot stove reporter, has a new article up. Let’s discuss.
- The Red Sox seem inclined to keep Coco Crisp unless they’re blown away with an offer. Jayson Stark noted last week that the Sox don’t want to eat any of the $11MM owed to him.
- The Rays still like Matt Murton, and are not content with Nathan Haynes as their only outfield acquisition. Rosenthal says the Cubs are asking for a lot for the 26 year-old, who is hitting .333/.487/.333 in 30 Triple A at-bats.
- Rosenthal notes that Jed Lowrie is pretty well blocked in Boston with their infielders signed through at least 2010. Could bring something nice in trade.
