According to a pair of reports on Yahoo! Sports and ESPN.com, Jayson Werth and his agent, Scott Boras, will meet with Boston Red Sox front-office officials today in Chicago, where yesterday, GM Theo Epstein and manager Terry Francona met with free agent outfielder Carl Crawford. ... Moving from one Jayson to another, ESPN.com senior baseball writer Jayson Stark reports that former Phillie Arthur Rhodes has moved to the top of the Phillies' reliever wish list. Rhodes, 41, went 4-4 with a 2.29 ERA and was named to the National League All-Star Team last season on the wings of a 33-game scoreless appearance streak that was eventually snapped by the Phillies. Rhodes, who was an abomination as the Phillies' set-up man in 2006, owns a career 6.57 ERA at Citizens Bank Park and pitched to a 7.32 ERA at home in '06. But after missing all of 2007, he's been an effective left-hander with the Mariners, Marlins and Reds.
