MLB Trade Rumors: Boston Red Sox & Middle Relief

Boston Red Sox - Backup plan falling apart - The Boston Globe: "They sent Michael Bowden to the bullpen in Pawtucket because they’d love to solve the thinning middle-relief situation from within rather than expend prospects for a veteran reliever, but they’re exploring those possibilities as well. Major League sources have the Sox linked to Toronto’s Scott Downs or Cleveland’s Kerry Wood. It appears Wood wouldn’t cost as much as lefthander Downs, because all Cleveland would want is for the Sox to take on the remainder of the $10.5 million deal and deal with the option Wood has in 2011. So far, the Sox have resisted that, and a similar deal for Arizona catcher Chris Snyder."
