I want to wish every one of you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving, a day to give thanks for every blessing bestowed upon you. We all have so much to be thankful for. Nadia and I are going to have a quiet dinner at home as the rest of my family will be out of town. Thanksgiving dinner for two is a first for me but it should be nice. Now, on to baseball, what little there is of it...

Yesterday's story from the New York Daily News may have overstated the urgency of the Boston Red Sox completing a deal to add Roy "Doc" Halladay to their pitching staff. Don't expect him to sign BEFORE the winter meetings, as reported...that would be a long shot, especially with multiple teams vying for his talents.

Remember the name Marco Scutaro. He is a free agent shortstop, a position the Red Sox need to fill until 19 year old Jose Iglesias grows into the role. Scutaro can also play second and third base so the three year deal he desires could be a good fit. There are multiple teams that have expressed interest in Scutaro so he won't come cheap. His agent recently said this...

“Boston is at or near the top of Marco’s list of where to sign but quite a few teams have expressed interest,” said his agent, Peter Greenberg. “There’s a lot of teams interested in him in different situations. We still have to have lots of conversations and we obviously have to finalize terms at a certain point but clearly, looking at this situation, Marco has a lot of interest in coming to Boston."

I wonder how many similiar quotes to different teams Mr. Greenberg has released. I hope he's right, though. Boston clearly needs a starting shortstop.

That's it for this wonderful Thanksgiving Day Thursday 2009. I wish every one of you the, food, maybe a parade, football and full stomachs. Eat what you want, drive safely and as always, BE WELL. Thanks for stopping in. I'll see you tomorrow, bright and (too) early.
