The Red Sox, looking to add an impact outfielder to their lineup this winter, are taking their cuts: After meeting with free agent Carl Crawford in Houston recently, the traveling road show continued when general manager Theo Epstein and manager Terry Francona met with free agent Jayson Werth and his representatives in Chicago on Wednesday evening, according to sources with knowledge of the talks.

There are no indications that a deal is close with either player, as sources say the discussions are "continuing." Plus, both Crawford and Werth remain highly sought after by other clubs.

Crawford remains the Angels' top target as well, and owner Arte Moreno and Co. continue to put on a full-court press. Though the Angels have been linked to free agent closer Rafael Soriano as well, Crawford remains far and away their top priority. One source with knowledge of the Angels plans says they want Crawford "bad."

Either Werth or Crawford would play well in Fenway Park, which is why Epstein and Francona have made the rounds from Houston to Chicago. It is believed that Scott Boras, Werth's agent, also conducted talks with other clubs while in Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday morning.

I would agree with your assessment that the Yankees season wasn't as disappointing as the Red Sox, but it was more impressive that the Red Sox were able to play as well as they did with almost half of a minor league roster.

Although, your final two sentences blows up your whole argument, "World Series or bust!!! At least the Yankees made it to the dance." Really?? This is a total contradiction. Either it's all or nothing, unless the Yankees make the playoffs and the Red Sox don't is what seems like your argument should be.

I think were all missing the biggest reason for all this spending. I think the players are the ones who wouldn't want salary caps. This has alot to do with the players union. That's why you never hear players on the bad teams say well this team and that team buy their championships. It's not the Yankees fault its like this. Blame it on Curt flood.

look at the div the twins play in. If the yankees played in that div they would win 105 to 115 reg season games a year, the twins would finish a consitent 3rd or 4th in the east. HELLO!
