No talks on Drew

There were no talks between the Red Sox and Scott Boras on the J.D. Drew matter on Wednesday, but there was still the possibility the sides would get together this week in an attempt to settle the contract.

Drew’s agent, Scott Boras, still has Barry Zito on the market and with the Yankees contemplating a deal for Randy Johnson to Arizona, San Diego, or San Francisco, Boras has been busy.

Johnson’s co-agent, Alan Nero, declined comment on the status of the proposed deal for Johnson. If Johnson is dealt, Boras might get the Yankees involved on Zito. Already, the Rangers, Mets, and Giants have shown interest in Zito, but the Rangers want a decision by the weekend.
