    Mike Myers:


    Mike Myers gushed about Johnny Damon, sounding like the center fielder's campaign manager. Myers was Damon's teammate in Boston for nearly 1 1/2 seasons before agreeing to a $2.4 million, two-year contract with the Yankees, a deal that was finalized Thursday. The lefty reliever wants the speedy leadoff hitter to follow him to New York.

    "I've talked to him and he does have a strong interest in playing there," Myers said. "So hopefully contract-wise everything will get worked out, and me and him can be teammates for the next couple of years again."

Being offered arbitration often doesn't translate into that player staying with their team. But it is clear from the list of people not offered arbitration that the Sox have little interest in their services in the future.

    Renteria, Boston's prize free agent acquisition last winter, has fallen out of favor after a 30-error season. He could be headed to the Braves as part of a three-way deal with the Devil Rays in which the Sox would receive Devil Rays shortstop Julio Lugo while Tampa Bay would get prospects from Atlanta, presumably highly regarded third baseman Andy Marte and another player.

    We're talking about a premier hitter in the prime of his career, That's a lot of offense to replace. It's not easy."-- Craig Shipley, 1/4 of the GM committee
