Default on the scene with the Boston Red Sox.

Red Sox Wanted To Discuss Lester Deal More In Spring - RealGM Wiretap
Ben Cherington says he wishes the Boston Red Sox had some time with negotiate with Jon Lester prior to the 2014 season.


Lester agreed to a deal with the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday. He became a free agent this offseason after the Red Sox dealt him to the Oakland Athletics in July.


The Red Sox made Lester an offer of $70 million over four years asics gel kayano 20 mens australia , which has been reported multiple times. Cherington wishes Boston had a chance to improve that offer, which he felt was a starting point.


"Back at the beginning of this process, we made a commitment with (Lester's agent Seth Levinson) and Jon to not talk about the details of the conversations publicly and we've honored that," Cherington said. "So I'm not going to stop honoring that now.


"The problem when pieces of conversations or pieces of information get put out without the whole context of what's going on, it can sort of shape the public narrative. All I can say is that we had a lot of conversations prior to making an offer. I think there was a decent understanding on both sides of where, back in spring training, and during the season, of where the range of both sides were looking. We felt that we could enter into a conversation, and we could start a conversation and that’s the only way you get to a deal, is to start a conversation. We just weren't able to have the kind of dialogue back in the spring asics gel kayano 20 womens australia , or during the season, that we wanted to.


"As I've said before, can we learn things from what happened? Sure. Always can. But right now, once you get into free agency, it becomes a different animal. We understand that. Simply put, the Cubs offered more than we did and he made a choice and we respect it and wish him nothing but the best. We go back to focusing on putting our team together and we feel really good about where we are."

White Sox To Release Jeff Keppinger - RealGM Wiretap

The Chicago White Sox have requested unconditional release waivers for Jeff Keppinger.


Chicago signed Keppinger to a three-year, $12 million contract in the 2012-13 offseason.


The 34-year-old batted just .253.283.317 in 451 plate appearances last season and hasn't played in the Major Leagues this season.

锘? The other day I was paired up for a round of golf with a fellow who I had never played with before. As often happens, our conversation got around to comparisons between golf courses. I asked him what he thought of one of the newer courses in our loop called Glencairn, just outside of Milton, Ontario asics gel kayano 20 australia , Canada. "That's not a North American style course" he said somewhat derisively. Right at that point we were interrupted, so I didn't have the opportunity to ask him what he meant by the comment. But having had this discussion with quite a few fellow golfers, I had a pretty good idea. When it was opened, Glencairn was promoted as a "links style" course, and playing there was supposed to make you slap yourself and say, "Hey, did I just get transplanted to Scotland." But the truth is, for most of us, our preconceived notions about "links style" golf are based on nothing more than this sort of advertising hype. There is some debate about just what a "links style" course is supposed to be. Things that come to mind are the absence of trees, firm sandy turf asics gel lyte iii black tan australia , large gently undulating greens, and areas around the greens where the ball can be run up or even putted. In North America fabricated links courses like Glencairn also include other features intended to "make you think you are in Scotland" -- deep bunkers that sometimes even try to be "sod-walled", the occasional "burn" meandering through or across several fairways, high uncut grass that is referred to as "fescue", lots of pictures in the club house of St. Andrews, Muirfield and other famous Scottish courses, tartan carpets, and of course lots of Scottish sounding names for the restaurant, lounge, and so on. Judging from the conversations I have had with fellow golfers asics gel lyte v black speckle australia , what they do not like about these "links style" courses is mostly an aesthetic thing. They don't have enough trees and they are not green enough. First of all there is the lack of trees. In large parts of North America the soil and climate are ideal for trees. Generally speaking, the most heavily populated areas -- the areas that have the most golf courses -- also have the most temperate climate, and therefore the most trees. So the original North American courses were often cut out of forested land. Even if it was not the intent of the original course designer, the trees became an important part of the "look and feel" of the course. Tree lined fairways are what many North American golfers came to expect. The matter was quite different with the original links courses of Scotland, England and Ireland. In these places "links land" referred to the area along the sea coast between the sand dunes and the more useful land further inland. This was considered ideal for golf courses because, generally speaking, it was not useful for much else, vegetation was relatively sparse so maintenance could be kept to a minimum, and it was often viewed as quasi-public land -- much like beaches still are in many places, and so was ideal for recreational purposes such as golf. Trees were absent from these courses because they could not grow in this seaside environment. The soil was generally too sandy and not mineral-rich enough to support the kind of trees we are used to in North American forests. The other thing most North American golfers like is lots of green. Green grass asics gel saga womens australia , green trees, green greens. If their golf course is not lush and green they think something is wrong. This "need for green" also has its origins in our climate, vegetation and soil conditions. The same soil and rain conditions that support towering maples, oaks and pines, are also ideal for the thick, lush varieties of grass we use in most of our fairway.
