Gammons: Sox interested in Beltran deal

MLB and NESN analyst Peter Gammons checked in with The Big Show on Wednesday afternoon from the winter meetings in Orlando to discuss a number of topics, including the possibility of Carlos Beltran coming to the Red Sox, who will win the battle for the services of Cliff Lee and the Red Sox’ bullpen situation. 

 

Gammons was asked if he thought there was interest from the Red Sox to make a deal with the Mets to acquire Beltran, as has been rumored over the past couple of days.

 

"There is," Gammons said of possible interest from Boston. "They talked - Sandy Alderson and Theo talked about it - but if it happens it'll be a month from now. The Red Sox told the Mets that there is no way in the world they are going to trade Matsuzaka straight up for Beltran. They will keep talking. I think it's a great idea for one year. The Mets want you to take him for about $10 million in contract and they wanted some...

Boras believes Beltran will 'be a Met'

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Speaking to reporters at the Dolphin Resort Hotel, Scott Boras said he has not been in communication with the Mets regarding his client Carlos Beltran, who has been rumored to be of interest to the Red Sox but does have a no-trade clause in his current contract. Beltran has battled issues with his knees, and is owed $18.5 million for 2011, the final year of his current deal.

 

“Carlos is doing well. Obviously, having gone through surgery last year early in the season helped him in his return to play. He’s doing fine,"Boras said. "He’s working out with a conditioning coach daily. His plan right now is to be a New York Met. He has a no-trade clause. If anything were brought to him, it would depend on what the situation were. But I’d say that right now, his expectation is to be a Met next year."

 

According to major league sources, any deal involving the...

Boras won't close door on Beltre, Sox

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- While speaking to the media following the press conference to announce Carlos Pena's one-year deal with the Cubs, agent Scott Boras was asked about if one of his clients, Adrian Beltre, was disappointed that a return to the Red Sox would seem to be in doubt now that the team has acquired first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Boras insinuated, however, that the Sox could possibly still make some sort of move to find a place for Beltre, despite the fact third base now appears to be occupied by Kevin Youkilis.

 

"Adrian Beltre is a player, when you have somebody who performs like that in the marketplace, who is that good a defender, that good a complete player … You just never know what a team is going to do because a player like that is available," said Boras. "When people are telling me clubs are in or out, I've been in this business way too long to have things change, a player moved, or whatever happens...

Sturm: 'I'm not happy with the situation'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins winger Marco Sturm, nearly traded to the Kings last week, remains unsure of what his future holds. Sturm agreed to waive his no-trade clause to facilitate the deal, but the trade fell through. The 32-year-old estimated that he is 10-14 days from being able to play in games as he comes back from a torn ACL and MCL, but not knowing where he'll be has been hard on him and his family. 

 

"I'm happy I'm still here, but I'm not happy with the situation," Sturm said after practice on Wednesday. "It's been hard on me and my family. It's not fun, but I've got to try to make the best of it, and we'll see what happens."

 

Sturm has not spoken to Peter Chiarelli since last week and hasn't heard anything from the team about potentially being sent to Providence. The team cannot afford his $3.5 million salary cap hit, so they would need to either move him, send him to Providence, or shed salary...
