Red Sox rumors from ESPN's Gordon Edes...
- Edes talked to Jason Bay's agent Joe Urbon, who indicated the timing of Bay's signing won't be affected by Matt Holliday. Edes' team source says Bay remains Boston's top target.
- Edes says Marco Scutaro "almost certainly remains at the top of Boston's list" at shortstop. Scutaro's agent Peter Greenberg left open the possibility of his client signing before Monday's Winter Meetings.
- One of Edes' Red Sox sources says John Lackey is not a target.
- We knew of Boston's interest in Rich Harden and Kelvim Escobar, and Edes adds that the Sox are eyeing Erik Bedard. Edes talked to Escobar's agent (also Greenberg) and learned that Boston is "at or near the top of" his client's list. The righty plans to pitch in winter ball. Escobar had labrum surgery in July of 2008.
