Red Sox Tried to Land Felix Hernandez

The Red Sox went after Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez before the deadline and according to the Seattle Times were willing to pay a hefty price. Theo offered the Mariners a pick of any 5 of the following players in exchange for Hernandez:

RHP Clay Buchholz
RHP Daniel Bard
RHP Justin Masterson
LHP Nick Hagadone
RHP Michael Bowden
LHP Felix Doubront
OF Josh Reddick
SS Yamaico Navarro

I find it hard to believe that the Mariners would turn down Buchholz, Bard, Masterson and Reddick for Hernandez but GM's are demanding a ton for good starting pitchers as we saw with Toronto and Halladay. The report also says Theo tried to get the Padres involved in a 3-way deal where the Sox would get Hernandez but the Mariners also turned that down.

After yesterday's performance, I doubt Buchholz will garner much attention anymore.

I have constantly said that he is overrated. I really hope he can get it going because the Sox really need him right
