Hanrahan Open To Re-Upping With Sox In 2014

Christopher Evans/Herald
It's kind of refreshing when a new Red Sox player (who's yet to be in a real game) is already floating the idea of a long-term stay in the Hub. Joel Hanrahan, who came in a trade with the Bucs, is slated to be Boston's 2013 closer. But, he will become a free agent after the season. Said Hanrahan, "It has been great here so far. I didn't know what to expect, being traded over here. But I was a fan of this team before and I've enjoyed everything about it. If they want to talk about something, I would listen." If he performs as well as he did against the Red Sox at PNC Park in recent years, there would be lots of reasons to keep him around.
