Now, Sox ARE Reported Interested In Manny Machado

Take any reports on a Boston trade for Manny Machado with a huge grain of salt—in fact, make that one of those mountains of salt at various maintenance areas on the Mass Turnpike. Just yesterday, the consensus was that—while Machado was put back on the market by the Orioles—the Red Sox were NOT among the seven teams still interested in a deal for the 25-year-old three-time All-Star.  Tonight, however, MLBNetwork's Jon Morosi is reporting that Boston is showing "continued trade interest" in Machado. Perhaps more to the point is the follow-up by's Rob Bradford which suggests that the Red Sox interest in Machado is "overstated". Stay tuned!
