V-Mart close to sign with Tigers

1

"The Tigers are close to a deal with catcher Victor Martinez on a four-year, $50MM deal, reports Ignacio Serrano of El Nacional (link in Spanish). Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets to confirm the report. Serrano says Martinez accepted the Tigers' offer, and there will be a deal barring an unforeseen event." source: www.mlbtraderumors.com

GREAT DEAL ON RED SOX JACKETS

+

MLB is having a 50% off sale on last year's Majestic Authentic Premier jackets. I always wanted one, but they were too expensive for me. However, I will most certainly take advantage of this. For me, $60-70 is a reasonable price for a jacket. I can't figure out how long the offer lasts, though.

Sox looking to trade Scutaro?

+

Probably just talk, but kinda interesting. More than likely, this is just some Sox insider relaying some team(s) asked then about Scutaro. I can't see much upside to this trade, because I can't believe the Sox will get much, in terms of young prospects in return. I could see a scenario where some team needs a decent, cheap veteran SS for 2011 and may have an expensive arbitration or pending FA to dump to the Sox. Remember, if Lowrie enters the starting lineup, the Sox will need a good, versatile IF player that can play 3 positions like Lowrie. If Lowrie becomes the full-time SS or 3B, the team won't want to move him around, allowing him to settle into one position.

Red Sox Meet With Reps From Crawford, Werth, And Beltre

I guess this isn't too suprising. No word yet if Boras still claims Adrian Beltre should be paid Torii Hunter Money or not.

MLB honors Red Sox for community involvement

2

It's always cool to see a team do good in its community. In addition to Wakefield winning the Clemente award earlier this year, now the team as a whole is being recognized for its work with students. Each year, the Sox are selecting 25 young students—fifth graders—from Boston public schools, and working with them throughout their middle and high school years, in addition to giving them $10,000 college scholarships. It's a really neat idea, and as someone particularly interested in education, I am especially pleased to see this happening in Boston. I hope it's something the rest of MLB can use as an example for the future.

Three Year Deal for Joaquin Benoit and Tigers

+

Benoit spun last year's huge bounce back performance into a 3year/$16.5M contract. Wow. I know all of us want Theo to go out and sign a big name reliever, but isn't $5.5M per year kind of a lot? Or is that just me?
