Alex Speier of WEEI has the latest Red Sox buzz from the GM meetings…
- Theo Epstein confirmed that he has a new contract, but wouldn’t reveal the terms. About a month ago, SI.com’s Jon Heyman said it was worth about $7MM over three years.
- It seems that Mike Timlin plans to pitch in 2009, but it won’t be for the Red Sox. Timlin, 43 in March, posted a 5.66 ERA in 49.1 innings this year. It might be time to head back to the NL.
- Paul Hoynes says Sean Casey also won’t be back with the Sox next year.
- Epstein will meet with Scott Boras this week, with Jason Varitek an expected topic.
