Couple of quick baseball tidbits.

Scott Boras is supposedly visiting the Red Sox today.  UPDATE: They met in Chicago.  On the docket: Adrian Beltre and Jayson Werth.

Goodbye, Beard.

Speaking of ex-outfielders, Pat Burrell has signed a one-year contract extension with the Giants.  I hate to quote the Mercury News, but….

I heard tonight and was able to confirm that the Giants and Burrell have agreed on a discounted, one-year contract for 2011. It looks like Burrell and good pal Aubrey Huff will be able to punch each other after home runs for one more season. And the Giants will have one more misfit back from their 2010 World Series roster.

One year- just like the number of World Series hits he has.
