Report: A's offered Scutaro three years

According to FoxSports.com, the Oakland A's offered Marco Scutaro a guaranteed three years, in a deal which would have translated to more money for the free agent shortstop. Scutaro signed a two-year, $12.5 million deal with the Red Sox, with a mutual option for 2012. The A's were the team mentioned in by Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein which forced the Sox' hand when it came to getting a deal done. "There was one team in particular that was really pushing aggressively, with a quicker timetable, and it looked like it was going to get done before the winter meetings," Epstein said. "So we acted quickly and Marco rally wanted to be a Red Sox and we wanted him to be a Red Sox and it came together rapidly over the last couple of days." For more details from the Scutaro press conference see the Full Count Blog.

“I’m obviously talking totally hypothetically. Any transaction involving the Red Sox, I think there is a level of comfort,” Hoyer said in a conference call. “Most of the players over there were drafted by Jason. For a large part of that, I was the assistant GM. Knowing the player’s background, knowing their personality, there’s a comfort level in that, and frankly, I guess, a lack of risk compared to...
