According to a report by's Rob Bradford, the Red Sox have listened when other teams have inquired about troubled former ace Josh Beckett. While the sources have said "nothing is close" and that the exercise is just "kicking the tires", just the hint that the big Texan is on the bloc says a lot. Any deal would be tricky—and Boston would likely have to eat a big chunk of salary if they want anything usable (read: not Brent Lillibridge II) in return.
