Red Sox Rumors

Of course the big Red Sox Trade Rumor of the last few years has come true as the Red Sox finally locked up Adrian Gonzalez, but that doesn't mean there aren't more great Red Sox rumors out there.

Red Sox Rumor Rundown:
The Red Sox are reportedly interested in lefty reliever Brian Fuentes who was traded from the Angels to the Twins in 2010 after Twins All Star closer Joe Nathan was shelved for the season. Fuentes made $9,000,000 in 2010 and an ERA of 2.81 and a WHIP of 1.06 while saving 24 games and blowing 4. In just 2009 Brian Fuentes had a career year saving 48 games but that might have had more to do with who he was playing for as his ERA was 3.93. In an average year it would seem you could expect a mid 3 ERA from Fuentes and 30 plus saves.

Another Red Sox rumor has them interested in former Red Sox reliever Ron Mahay who pitched for the Red Sox in 1997 and 1998 after being drafted by us in the 18th round in 2001. Mahay pitched in 2010 for the Twins for $4,000,000 and appeared in 41 games putting up an ERA of 3.44 and a WHIP of 1.21. He had 1 win and 1 loss in 2010 and no saves with 1 hold. At 39 years old you have to wonder how much gas he has left in the tank.

More Red Sox rumors have them interested in Koji Uehara of the Orioles. For the services of the lefty Uehara they are reportedly battling the Brewers, Twins, Mariners, and Cardinals. One would suspect the stiffest competition for Uehara to come from the Brewers and Mariners as the Mariners are a good fit likely for the Japaneese born pitcher and the Brewers need any arm they can get. The 35 year old Uehara had a nice season for the Orioles in a relief role putting up a WHIP of .95 and ERA of 2.86 saving 13 games while holding 6 and blowing 2.   

As mention the big Red Sox Trade Rumor for Adrian Gonzalez got done, one of the main reasons why it was a rumor for so long and got done is maybe because what is now rumored that Gonzalez has wanted to play for our Red Sox for a long time. 

The rumor out of the Carl Crawford camp is that it might take a long time to get a deal done, so make sure to check back for all the latest Crawford to Red Sox rumors. In our opinion this is the best rumor that could become reality, we just love Crawford and think he could be a fixture in Boston for years.

If you have any thoughts about these or more Red Sox rumors we missed leave them below.
