The former Boston outfielder spoke earlier this week and indicated that there are indeed some teams showing interest. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) The non-tender deadline for the league came and went on Wednesday and everyone, including Matt Barnes, was kept. So with that, where does the Red Sox roster stand now?

FanPost Friday: Your Hall of Fame Ballot

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ Who would you vote in? It’s that time of year again: The time of year when we decide which players for whom we celebrate their careers by honoring them with enshrinement in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The rules are simple. Every year, baseball writers are given a ballot with around 25 names on it. The players on this list have been retired for over 5 years, and will remain on the ballot for as many as 10 years. Writers are given 10 votes. They may vote for 0 players, 10 players, or any number of players in between. If a...

OTM Open Thread 12/4: It is Friday

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ Happy Friday everyone. Not a whole hell of a lot going on in the sports world today as far as I can tell. There is some college basketball and college football, though none of those games look particularly exciting to me personally. The new Mandalorian episode came out today, too, though no spoilers there. I typically don’t watch until Saturday. Other than that, you’re on your own. Use this space to discuss whatever you’d like. As always, just be nice to each other.

Non-tendered players who could be of interest to the Red Sox

Non-tendered players who could be of interest to the Red Sox

Photo by Stephen Brashear/ Exactly what the headline says. Wednesday was the non-tender deadline around the league with teams having to decide whether or not they’d keep their arbitration-eligible players under contract for 2021 or non-tender them and send the players to free agency. Given the perceived economic landscape after the pandemic season, the expectation was that this deadline would be a terrible one for players. I think it ended up being a little better than expected, but it still wasn’t great. In total, there were 59 players who entered free agency,...
