Red Sox Repeatedly Told Mauer Is Not Available

Pioneer Press: Richard Marshall
According to Hall of Fame writer Peter Gammons, the Red Sox were told multiple times over the last few months that Joe Mauer would not be available in a trade. Speculation has swirled around the possibility of the Twins trading their All-Star catcher, but, at least according to Gammons, the door was definitively slammed in Boston's face. The Red Sox already have three catchers on their roster—and that's before a rumored acquisition of C/DH/1B Mike Napoli. If there is some sort of Master Discipline Plan somewhere in the bowels of Yawkey Way, we sure would like to see it!
