Minors Details Episode 1

Alex Speier is one of our favorite Red Sox beat writers here at OTM. He's also a very valuable resource when it comes to the team farm system. Lucky us, he now has a weekly Podcast and his first guests are: Mike Hazen and BA's Jim Callis!

Agent: Cameron's Rehab is Right on Schedule

According to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston, Cam's agent says his rehab puts him on track to start baseball-related activities a little after the Thanksgiving holiday. Still, the question remains: platoon option or bench player (4th OF in either case) or a trade chip?

Morgan and Miller will not be back on Sunday Night baseball

ESPN isn't bringing back either for TV broadcasts next year. Miller has been asked to be the voice of the broadcasts for the radio (no word yet on whether he will) but Morgan will not be returning. I'll be a little sad to not have Miller there, but I'm still dancing for joy because of this Morgan thing.

Report: Mets to interview DeMarlo Hale

DeMarlo Hale will interview for the New York Mets managerial vacancy on Tuesday or Wednesday, Comcast SportsNet reports...

MLB Trade Rumors Top 50 Free Agents List

Top 50 free agents along with Tim Dierkes' guesses of where they'll end up. His guesses involve the Sox ending up with Jayson Werth, Adrian Beltre, Scott Downs, and John Buck on the list. That would be a team I'd be pretty happy with. Draft pick wise, we'd be losing out on a first and second rounder, but would be gaining a first rounder and a sanwich pick for Martinez and possibly a sandwich for Lopez. If the rumors that the Tigers and Rockies are the main teams involved in trying to get Martinez, the Sox would just be improving their draft position by a decent amount.

Rangers Decline Vlad's Option - Papi Effect?

Does the Rangers decision to decline the $9 million one year option on Vlad signal the market for DH's like Ortiz? Vlad's numbers were about the same as Papi's, and the Red Sox hold a $12 million option on Ortiz. I still like Ortiz in the DH slot for another year or two, and the Sox can quickly put the issue behind them by picking up the option today while trying to negotiate a two-three year deal at less annual cost. Besides, Ortiz has been very reliable and Vlad is a walking DL.

Rockies Drop Miguel Olivo

Olivo is now a free agent after the Rockies made the choice to buy out his mutual option for $500K. Does this mean they will be aggressive going after Victor Martinez...or are they saying that Chris Iannetta is their man for '11?

I would love to play third base, but wherever the team needs me I’ll play. First base, third base....

I would love to play third base, but wherever the team needs me I’ll play. First base, third base. No outfield. I’ll play shortstop if they want me to play short. For me, anywhere in the infield is good.

Youkilis on positions. Why didn't we know this last year, he could've been our solution to short.
