However, Jim Duquette of SiriusXM Radio said on SNY's Mets Hot Stove tonight, Greinke remains linked to the Angels, who is the team's first choice.
The Red Sox are seeking a short-term solution for their starting pitching, and they are willing to pay a lot of money for it (Boston Globe).
15 teams are looking for one or more starting pitchers (CBS Sports).
15 teams? That should bode well for the Mets, who have a couple of quality starting pitchers available... There is a drop off in the free agent market after Greinke, Kyle Lohse, and Anibal Sanchez. Dickey could be a good option for the Red Sox. There were rumors yesterday that the Mets and Sox were discussing a deal for Xander Bogaerts and center fielder Jack Bradley, Jr. and - while that rumor was squashed - Boston is still in the market for an arm. I don't see Rays giving them James Shields or Jeremy Hellickson, and so their trade partners may be limited at this point.
