Peter Gammons, in his blog yesterday morning, mentioned a few options for the Red Sox’s closer vacancy:
"Would Seattle deal J.J. Putz for Manny? Dubious. Scott Boras would like to get Eric Gagne to Boston; problem is, are the medicals real or off the set of General Hospital? Joe Borowski has been calling now that his medicals were declined in Philly."
With Manny and Matsuzaka at the forefront, it’s easy to forget that Boston is also in the market for a closer. No sleep for Theo. Perhaps he’ll be speaking to Dave Littlefield in hopes of acquiring Matt Capps or Mike Gonzalez?
