Red Sox Free Agency
Tony Massarotti and Marc Bertrand had differing opinions on the Yankees signing Jacoby Ellsbury, and it made for interesting debate on the Felger and Mazz program.
By not signing Ellsbury and letting catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia walk in free agency, it shows that the Red Sox have learned from the mistakes of their past. And for that they deserve kudos.
MLB insider Jon Heyman of CBS Sports was a brief guest on Tuesday’s Gresh & Zolak show, but plenty of Red Sox hot stove talk was covered in a short amount of time.
Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe said on Toucher & Rich this morning that Pierzynski’s rep has largely been overblown, but Gresh is legitimately worried about the veteran catcher’s prickly personality.
Toucher and Rich spoke with Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe on Tuesday morning after word came out that the Red Sox agreed to a 1-year deal with catcher A.J. Pierzynski.
Tony Massarotti fears that the Red Sox are already feeling the pressure of “feeding the monster” and could very well make the same mistake twice in signing the wrong players.
The Red Sox offseason was a hot topic of discussion Tuesday on the Gresh & Zolak show. To cover it, Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe was in studio and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports called in at noon.

The Red Sox have had ongoing negotiations with free agent outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher, according to a report.
The Boston Red Sox may have three catchers on their roster right now, but that won’t stop them from pursuing another.
