Justin Masterson and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a $9.5 million, one-year contract.
With the offseason officially upon us, we say goodbye to the 2014 teams that we loved and hated and to the players on those rosters. I say this because the free agency period begins on Tuesday and there are many, many big-time players and MVP caliber athletes who can make an impact wherever they sign and cause chaos to the team they leave.
The Boston Red Sox built a World Series champion in 2013 by avoiding the expensive free agents they’ve made mistakes on in the past. They’ll have to do it again this winter.
The New York Giants continued their assault on their own free agents Thursday, reaching an unofficial deal with defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka as training camp nears.
Word out of the New England Patriots training camp is that several free agents are joining the team this fall.
