Report: Sox not getting Jackson from Cubs

According to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com (via twitter), outfield prospect Brett Jackson is not part of the potential compensation package that the Red Sox will receive from the Cubs in exchange for releasing general manager Theo Epstein from the last year of his contract. Asked whether she knew what the Sox wanted in exchange for Epstein, Muskat said, "No. But do know #Cubs Brett Jackson is not in the package."

Jackson, 23, a first-round pick in the 2009 draft, split last season between Double-A Tennessee (where he hit .256 with a .373 OBP, .443 slugging mark and .816 OPS in 67 games) and Triple-A Iowa (where he hit .297/.388/.551/.939). The left-handed hitting Jackson had a combined 20 homers and 21 steals between the two levels.

The Sox and Cubs had struggled to find common ground in the early stages of the negotiations between the clubs, with the Cubs offering...

Schilling: Crawford can rebound, Lackey can't

Former Red Sox pitcher and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling, in a call-in to the WEEI Sports Saturday Show, said that he believes Carl Crawford is strong enough to overcome both his disappointing first season in Boston as well as the suggestion by Sox owner John Henry on Friday that he was against the signing of the left-fielder.

"So I’m going into next season as Carl Crawford playing for an owner that doesn’t want me there. That’s awesome. I’m fired up," Schilling said sarcastically, before a more direct assessment. "The one thing about it is that that’s probably one of the few guys that will get after it a little bit harder.

"Of all the stuff to come out of this year, he was the one I felt worst for because he works as hard as anyone in the game. You can ask anyone who’s been around him. And yes, he’s making the money that’s in the contract, but there’s a guy who...

Former Red Sox auctioning World Series ring

According to the Boston Herald, former Red Sox reliever Scott Williamson is planning to auction off his 2004 World Series ring to help finance an overbuilt home and an indoor baseball facility in his town along the Indiana/Ohio line.

The auction will run through Oct. 25 and is to be conducted online by Cincinnati-based Everything But the House auctioneers (ebth.com), with the opening bid starting at $1.

Williamson is part of a family of four, including his wife, Lisa, 8-year-old son, Reece, and 6-year-old daughter, Cambrie. The house the family has lived in in Guilford, Ind., since '04 has become too much of a financial albatross. 

"In baseball, I thought, ‘What is one of the most important things that happened in my career that I could give up to accomplish something...
