Olerud to Boston?
A source said the Red Sox are talking to the Mariners about a deal that could send first baseman John Olerud to Boston.
Olerud, who has played for the Mariners since 2000, is in the final year of his contract, which pays him $7.7 million this season.
The Red Sox might also be looking for help in the bullpen, after right-hander Scott Williamson left a game Wednesday with an injury. The most likely Mariners relievers to be discussed would be veterans Shigetoshi Hasegawa and Ron Villone.
