The New York Daily News reports that the Sox and Mets have talked, along with the Phillies.
The Phillies, also looking to add to their rotation in a thin market, are willing to give up closer Tom Gordon in a deal with the Sox, according to a source.
Ken Rosenthal also weighs in on some of the Sox rumors, discounting the Jason Schmidt rumors as ludicrous but also floating the name Freddy Garcia. He doesn't offer anything solid, but informs us that the Sox did inquire about Dontrelle Willis and Andruw Jones before getting laughed off the phone. I found this quote to be very telling too.
