The Red Sox will meet with the agent for C.J. Wilson and Roy Oswalt in Dallas during the Winter Meetings. The discussion will be a continuation of talks between GM Ben Cherington and Bob Garber that were held in Milwaukee last month during the GM meetings.

After that conversation, Garber said it would be "premature" to say that that the Red Sox were only doing their due diligence when it came to checking in on Wilson, the biggest name on the starting pitching free agent market.

Said Garber: "I would say it's premature to say that the Red Sox aren't going to be interested in C.J., and C.J. is very interested in playing for the Red Sox. Fenway is one of his favorite places to pitch and he's interested in playing there."
