- Mark Saxon at ESPN interviews Don Mattingly about the Hall of Fame.
Q. Was there ever a time when you felt like you would be a Hall of Famer?
A. When I retired, I was 34. If I had kept playing another five years, I may have ended up with 3,000 hits and reached some other milestones and gotten in. I made the decision for my boys because I wanted to be around. When you do that type of thing, you know what you’re doing, you know you’re not going to make the Hall of Fame. If I was worried about making the Hall of Fame, I wouldn’t have retired.

- Via Steve Dilbeck at the LA Times, former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein likes the Adrian Gonzalez trade for the Sox.
“I really like the trade because I’m a big fan of the talent they got back,” he said.
Epstein values the young arms of starters Ruby De La Rosa and Allen Webster, and also appreciated the Red Sox being able to unload salaries over a quarter of a billion dollars in the deal.
“The payroll they freed up was remarkable in its own right,” he said.
