Extra Bases

The suspense builds

It’s midday in Music City, and the GMs have been occupied in housekeeping meetings this morning. Negotiations between the Sox and Twins are expected to resume in earnest this afternoon; the wild card is whether the Yankees will re-enter the fray…..There is still some uncertainty, even though the Sox sent the Twins medicals on Jon Lester, whether a package involving Jacoby Ellsbury remains a viable option for the Twins. Nick, Amalie and myself will try to furnish answers when they become available.
