REPORT: Red Sox NOT At Forefront Of Stanton Chase

Well, take your pick of reports—either the Red Sox are already deep in trade negotiations for Giancarlo Stanton OR they are not even in the "forefront" of the effort to land the MLB home run king. The truth likely lies somewhere in between—but it wouldn't surprise anyone if Dave Dombrowski takes the much safer route of signing J.D. Martinez and either Eric Hosmer or Carlos Santana to address the offensive funk in the Boston lineup. The latest reporting—by's Jon Heyman—cites a Marlins source claiming the Red Sox have not (as yet) been "deeply involved" in the Giancarlo chase. Stay tuned.
