Red Sox Seek Lefty Relief; Rangers Out On Beckett

The latest on the Red Sox, with less than two hours remaining for Ben Cherington to make a deal…

  • The Red Sox are in the market for a left-handed reliever, according to Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com (on Twitter McAdam credits Peter Gammons for first reporting the news). Adding a lefty reliever would allow the Red Sox to move Franklin Morales back to the rotation, McAdam writes. Here are some southpaw relievers for Cherington to consider.
  • The Red Sox and Rangers definitely won't revisit the possibility of a Josh Beckett trade, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. The sides could re-engage next month if the right-hander clears waivers.

It’s sad. I looked forward to the trade deadline every year for getting some pieces to fill the holes.

Now I am watching this year’s deadline praying that Beckett is shipped out and he waives his 10-5s…

Based on what is available now and scheduled to be a FA this winter, Josh is better than almost every one of them.

Similar to Rangers adding to the BP to put Ogando in the rotation

Being able to add Morales to the rotation would be just as good as most of the realistic SP options out there

Who would get bumped, though? They’d have to be planning to move someone. probably Cook?

Probably Cook. Maybe Nationals would be interested in some Cook/Shoppach deal

I think Beckett would look great pitching a game number 2 for the Dodgers! If boston eats half the contract and dont expect an A or B plus prospect, maybe a B or 2 C’s.

Wonder if there’s a possible deal between the Cubs and Red Sox for James Russell?

David O’Brien tweeted last night: #RedSox have one of their top scouts here tonight at Turner Field for
#Braves vs. #Marlins, and I’m told he’s not here to see #Marlins.

Wonder if the 2 innings pitched by Luis Avilan were an audition?

Perez for Dempster sounds great for Texas, but doubt it would get done..

They just got Craig Breslow from the Dbacks for Podsednik and Albers.

A lefty in the bullpen is why they put Morales back out their. Oh good grief. He was their best starter.
