Again, not a lot out there this morning.
Ken Rosenthal says the Red Sox signing John Smoltz doesn't make them any more likely to deal Clay Buchholz for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and suggests that they'd be open to trading Michael Bowden and Daniel Bard for Salty. Rosenthal also says the Red Sox and Rangers haven't talked since the winter meetings.
And on another sort-of-baseball related topic...the son of former major league Bobby Tolan was shot recently, by the police, in his front yard, not too far from where I live. Ugly story, and a black eye for our community down here.
