Red Sox to check Ramirez' wrists

The deal between the Red Sox and Rangers that would send Mike Lowell to Texas for minor league catcher/first baseman Max Ramirez is still not complete, with part of the process including the exchange of medical records. While it has been well-documented that the Rangers' concerns center around Lowell's surgically repaired right hip, sources say that the Sox also have to be satisfied with previously injured parts of Ramirez' body -- both of his wrists -- before completing any trade.

 

Multiple baseball sources expected that the condition of the wrists would not be serious, but the Sox wanted to confirm that assessment before finishing the deal. Ramirez, who is currently leading the Venezuelan Winter League in home runs (12) while hitting .236, experienced soreness in his right wrist in June and then was sidelined in July by tendinitis in his left wrist.

Report: Mets offer Bay 4 years, $65M
By: DJ Bean

Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman reported via Twitter that the Mets have offered free agent outfielder Jason Bay a four-year deal worth $65 million. It had been reported prior to this week's winter meetings that the Angels and Mariners also would be in the mix for Bay, though multiple outlets this week have suggested neither team will make a strong push. 
 

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the Mets determined over the winter meetings that they could be players in the bidding for Bay, John Lackey and/or Matt Holliday.

Now, with reports of the official bid, it appears that they are coming closer to finding out just how good its chances are of acquiring the All-Star.*
 

Bay hit .267/.384/.537 last season with the Red Sox while leading...
