    Red Sox have interest in Alexander Guerrero

    Alexander Guerrero no longer looks poised to don Dodger blue. There were reports last week that Los Angeles was closing in on a multi-year contract with Guerrero, but talks have since broken down and FOX Sportsí Ken Rosenthal now reports that itís unclear how heavily the Dodgers will remain involved in the negotiations for the 26-year-old Cuban infielder. CBSSports.comís Jon Heyman reports that the bidding for Guerrero, who remains a free agent, is ďwide open.Ē The Dodgers are still considered the favorite to land Guerrero, but the Red Sox, Reds, Rangers and Giants are among the other teams that may have some interest, according to Heyman. There were reports last week that Guerrero was close to signing a five-year, $32 million contract with the Dodgers, but he has since dropped agent Rudy Santin in favor of Scott Boras. According to Rosenthal, the Dodgers ó at least for the time being ó no longer are willing to sign Guerrero for $32 million, although, Rosenthal says, the teamís position might simply be strategic. This isnít the first time that the Red Sox have been linked to Guerrero. Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 reported last month that the Red Sox were in the mix for the infielder, although Yahoo! Sportsí Tim Brown later reported that Boston was not among the final bidders. Guerreroís strength is considered his offense. He sat out the 2013 season after not making Cubaís final World Baseball Classic roster, though, so there are apparently character concerns.

    I don't know much about him. I really doubt we would bid heavily into him when Bogaerts will have SS next year. Being left off the WBC roster isn't a character concern, guys who they think might defect get left off rosters like that.

    Maybe they think he might be able to play 3B/OF.

    Or maybe it's just Boras being Boras and Heyman helping out.
