Free-agent left fielder Jason Bay has reportedly rejected the Boston Red Sox's latest offer, with his agent saying Bay was prepared to "move on." According to a Foxsports. com report, agent Joe Urbon said, "We don't agree with their evaluation of the player. Frankly, we have other offers on the table that are of greater interest to Jason." The Red Sox reportedly offered Bay a four-year, $60-million contract. Also in Boston, outfielder Brian Anderson became a free agent when the Red Sox decided against offering him a contract for next season.

SEATTLE - Home runs by Jason Bay in the seventh inning and Michael Morse in the eighth gave the Seattle Mariners a 2- 1 victory over the Angels on Sunday and spoiled a strong start by left-hander Jason Vargas. Vargas, who had an 0-2 record and 5.82 earned-run average in his first four starts, gave up six hits, struck out seven and walked two in eight innings, the longest outing by an Angels starter this season. But the Angels managed only four hits against starter Hisashi Iwakuma and relievers Carter Capps and Tom Wilhelmsen, and lost three of four games to the Mariners to fall to 9-15.

Jason Bay hit a two-run home run, David Ortiz and Victor Martinez added solo shots and the Boston Red Sox beat Roy Halladay and the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-1, Wednesday night. "We've been swinging good and when you're swinging good, that's what happens," said Ortiz, who has hit a home run in three consecutive games. Boston, which moved one game in front of Texas in the American League wild-card race, has hit at least two home runs in five games in a row. Bay, who has hit a home run in seven of his last 11 games, hit a two-run drive to left field in the fifth inning, his team-high 27th, to make it 5-1. -- associated press

A dozen or so Japanese media members gathered around Tony Reagins as the Angels general manager checked into the winter meetings hotel Monday afternoon, ready to pounce with their questions about free-agent slugger Hideki Matsui. Reagins didn't disappoint. "He's a person we've talked about," Reagins said of Matsui, who earned World Series most-valuable-player honors by hitting .615 with three home runs and eight runs batted in to help the New York Yankees defeat the Philadelphia Phillies in six games.

Don't expect a Bay window to be added to any renovations the Angels make this winter. Thought by some to be the front-runner for slugger Jason Bay , the Angels made clear Wednesday that the free-agent outfielder is nowhere near the top of their priority list. "He has been in our internal discussions, but I think we have some more pressing needs . . . than the talent Jason can bring," Manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday at the winter meetings. "He's an extraordinary talent, but we definitely have to look for some balance in some areas, and that might not make Jason a great fit for our club.

Matt Holliday is not coming. Jason Bay might be coming. John Lackey and Chone Figgins are not coming back -- not together, anyway. Those were the highlights of the state of the Angels address delivered by owner Arte Moreno on Thursday, after baseball's owners concluded their meetings here. The free-agent shopping season opens today, with owners citing an uncertain economic forecast in suggesting players might linger on the market well into the winter. Yet Moreno left one thing absolutely certain: The Angels have no interest in outfielder Matt Holliday, perhaps the best position player available in free agency.

BOSTON -- Jon Lester pitched into the eighth inning, Jason Bay hit a home run in a three-run first inning and the Boston Red Sox beat Tampa Bay, 3-0, Monday night to move to within half a game of the American League East-leading Rays.

Boston improved to 6-1 in its last seven games, and Tampa Bay is 1-6 in that same stretch after losing its fourth consecutive game. The Rays were shut out for the second consecutive day for the first time this year, having lost at Toronto, 1-0, Sunday.
