Items on the Red Sox and Mets..
- Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com has a list of suggestions for fixing the Red Sox and writes that the club should seek out a starting pitcher who can make a difference. Ryan Dempster of the Cubs, Heyman writes, would be a solid fit.
- Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com (via Twitter) wasn't confident that David Wright would be a lifelong member of the Mets a year ago but now thinks that there's a good chance the club will pony up more than $100MM to keep him.
- Mets reliever Tim Byrdak could use support from a second lefty in the bullpen, but pitching coach Dan Warthen told Rubin that the club is unlikely to deal for one. Byrdak has made a league-leading 19 relief appearances.
- The Red Sox signed Pablo Murena, a 17-year-old catcher out of Panama, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com. Murena became a catcher just a couple months ago and the team was impressed with his arm strength at the position.
