According to FanHouse's Ed Price, the Red Sox will be going after Jason Bay, but not his left field counterpart Matt Holliday:
#RedSox have told people if they don't get Jason Bay they will not spend on Matt Holliday. And word is #Mariners pushing on Bay
The offseason has just become very interesting if this is true. If the Red Sox don't get Bay or Holliday, who is the answer? Jeremy Hermida maybe? Maybe a trade? Maybe Mike Cameron in center field and Jacoby Ellsbury in left?
Boy, I sure do love the hot stove.
