Rumor Mill

  • The Red Sox had discussed a Trot Nixon and Tomo Okha for Dustin Hermanson trade with the Expos, but those talks seem to have cooled off, despite the fact that, with the Ramirez signing, the Sox need to deal an outfielder.  (The Boston Globe, 12/13/00)

  • The Red Sox have spoken with Seattle about pitcher Brett Tomko.  Boston players in the mix may include Troy O'Leary, Trot Nixon, and Scott Hatteberg.  (ESPN, 12/8/00)

  • Now that the Dave Nilsson signing has fallen through and Dan Duquette has managed to destroy Rico Brogna's lifelong desire to play in Boston for the rest of his career, the Sox may make a panic trade with Detroit for first baseman Tony Clark. (The Sporting News, 12/1/00)

  • John Valentin maintains that his knee will be healed by spring training, meaning that he and Chris Stynes would likely share the third base duties to begin the season. (The Sporting News, 11/22/00)

  • Pedro Martinez, during his Cy Young press conference, said he wanted Carl Everett back next season, and that he's confident that he can fit in in the clubhouse. That should pretty much put an end to the Carl Everett trade rumors. (The Boston Globe, 11/14/00)

  • The Red Sox have discussed a Troy O'Leary/Dustin Hermanson trade with the Expos. (The Sporting News, 11/10/00)
