Dontrelle Willis Closer To Becoming A Red Sox ?

9. Detroit – The front office got the word late last week that it could keep the payroll at about $134 million, same as last season, which means they can sign a cheap free agent (Darren Oliver, Hoffman) or two. A far cry from last season, when they went all out and had nothing to show for it. They’re also contemplating a deal with Boston to send either Nate Robertson or Dontrelle Willis for Lugo, but some money issues must be resolved.
You can rule out any interest in Robertson, he has been just awful the past two years. If the Sox are to make this deal, which they should it, will be for Willis.
