Here we are at the Hot Stove Cool Music roundtable discussion hosted by Theo Epstein and Peter Gammons. It’s a fundraiser for a Foundation To Be Named Later.
The panelists are John Farrell, Rich Hill, Curt Schilling, Bronson Arroyo, Mike Reinold, Mike Hazen, Bob Tewksbury and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The topic will be developing pitchers.
Two little pieces of Red Sox news:
• Jonathan Papelbon and Jacoby Ellsbury filed for arbitration. The sides will exchange figures on Tuesday. The hearings do not start until Feb. 1, so there is plenty of time to make a deal.
• RHP Matt Fox was released. He was DFA’d back on Jan. 5.
