Winter Meetings Afternoon UPTONdate: Victorino, Hamilton close? ...Whatever.

Are you F'ing Kidding me Ruben? I like Upton and all but....OMFGSMH!!! - Drew Hallowell

Boston is in talks with Shane Victorino on a three year $38mm deal and Josh Hamilton is talking to the Rangers about a four year pact. Also, the Cliff Lee rumors are back.

Various sources are reporting that Shane Victorino is close to signing a 3 year 38MM deal with the Red Sox. Call me crazy but thats a lot of pineapples.

In other news, Josh Hamilton is also apparently talking to the Rangers about returning on a 4 year deal, and theres a 'Mystery team" involved... OOOH!!!

If Victorino signs with Boston, that could make it easier for them to trade Jacoby Ellsbury.

Also, the Phillies and Ruben Amaro continue to sit this offseason out, leading me to believe hes either punting, or about to do something HUGE, STUPID, OR BOTH

Now you know why the picture is of Cliff Lee.

UGH.

Unless they're going all in for Zack Greinke or getting Trevor Bauer back too this is a horrible idea.

UPDATE: Not so fast? Diamondbacks' beat writer Nick Piecoro:

UPDATE UPDATE: Ruben Amaro, Jr. Himself kills the rumor:
