Hot Stove Lunch: Red Sox inviting trouble by slow-playing trade talks

Red Sox pitchers and catchers report to Fort Myers a week from today. Days later, position players are set to join them.

Still unknown: will Mookie Betts join them?

The Red Sox continue to engage in trade discussions with both the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, but to date, there's been nothing finalized.

Despite the imminent arrival of spring training, the Red Sox apparently feel no sense of urgency to get a deal done this week, according to Alex Speier of the Boston Globe. It's incumbent upon the Sox to get the best deal they can for Betts and the team is willing to wait for that to happen.
