MLB Trade Rumors: Jayson Werth To Boston Is Like 'Chasing A Ghost'

If you were holding out hope that the Red Sox would land the Phillies' Jayson Werth in a trade, you can probably go ahead and exhale now. According to Gordon Edes, who cites "a major league source with direct knowledge," he was "chasing a ghost" when he asked if Boston was close to acquiring the outfielder who has 13 home runs this season. 

No word yet on MLB's policy regarding actually having a ghost play for you. Ghost runners are legal, obviously, but past that, who can say for sure.
