Sox Get Another Piece for the Bullpen Puzzle

Are the Sox Still Concerned with Beckett Shouldering the Load?

"The Sox, according to a major league source with direct knowledge of the negotiations, threatened to call off the deal because of health concerns over Beckett unless the Marlins included Mota." -- 11.25, Snow/Edes, Boston Globe

"But sources said the Red Sox demanded that Mota be included in the deal because of their concerns about Beckett's shoulder." -- 11.25, Miami Herald

Sox Don't Give Beckett the Cold Shoulder
