Fla. owner thinks Hanley will retire a Marlin

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Speaking at the MLB owners' meetings, Florida Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria told WEEI.com that he fully expects Hanley Ramirez to remain with his team, and predicts that the 26-year-old will end his career with the Marlins.

 

"Do I think he will retire a Marlin? Yes," Loria said.

 

"I love Hanley. You can tell everybody in Boston that my wife [Julie] is from Massachusetts [Leominster], she likes Hanley too, and she wouldn't let me get rid of him. But you never know. We signed him to a seven-year deal for a reason. There's no reason to think he should not be with us."

 

Ramirez, who has been rumored to be a target of the Red Sox in past years, signed a six-year, $70 million extension during the 2008 season. In 2010, his fifth full major league season, Ramirez hit .300, with 21 homers, and 32 stolen bases. Since arriving with the Marlins in the trade that sent Josh...

Report: Sox stopping at four years for Beltre

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A major league source has told the Boston Globe that the Red Sox are intent on not spending more than four years and $52 million for free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre, and appear to be taking a similar approach toward free agent catcher Victor Martinez. Beltre's agent, Scott Boras, is at the general managers' meetings, and is likely to meet with Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein before all parties leave town Thursday. According to SI.com, as many as 12 teams have touched base with Boras in regard to Beltre, whom the agent was quoted as saying is drawing "unprecedented interest."

Ortiz on one-year deal: 'I'm fine with it'

Speaking publicly for the first time since the Red Sox picked up his team option for $12.5 million, David Ortiz told ESPN.com that he had no problem with the team executing the option despite his preference to work out a multi-year deal.

 

"I was trying to get something different," Ortiz told ESPN.com's Jackie MacMullan. "I wanted to stay here longer. But I got what the team offered me, and I'm fine with it.

 

"My agent tried to talk with [the Red Sox] about something else, but that didn't work out. I thought what I've done here in Boston was well deserving of two years, but I can't do nothing about it now except come back and play.

 

"People are doubting me, I know, but I don't really understand that. It's not like anyone is asking me for something I haven't already done. So you want me to come back and hit? Haven't I done that every year?"

Hale not a finalist for Mets' managing job

ORLANDO, Fla. -- According to multiple reports out of New York, Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale is not one of the four finalists for the Mets' vacant managerial position. The 49-year-old Hale had been among the four finalists for the Blue Jays managing job last month before Toronto hired Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell for the job. According to the reports, the Mets' finalists are Terry Collins, Chip Hale, Bob Melvin, and Wally Backman. Earlier Tuesday, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said that if Hale didn't get the opening with New York, there would be no more changes to the Sox' coaching staff.
