Sports Parade By Milton Richman Unsigned Contracts Generate Rumors NEW YORK (UPI) - Both coincidental Charlie Finley and that either, sides have given a little. Boston Dick O'Ccnnell are talking all Whether I Seven Homers Hit In 5-4 Game NAUGATl'CK NEWS (Conn.) Tuesday, June 8,1916 -Page 9 Pirates Outslug Gncinnati has sweetened !he pot still the lime or that Red Sox hoping to sign Fred Lynn, Assistant General Manager Carlton Fisk and Rick Bur- John Claiborne is talking with Kapstein. These talks have generated all kinds of rumors. One is that the iled Sox, rather than hold still for Lynn's demands, are considering trading their 24 leson, and their financial adviser, Jerry Kapstein, has come down some. Lynn, once said to be looking for $2 million, likely would listen now to $1 million over five years providing Ihe Red Sox included year-old super sophomore who a no-trade provision. ' — That's becoming the big thing now, the no-trade clause, and doesn't that strike you funny? How long ago was it that Andy Mes'sersmith and the rest of his fellow ballplayers were bleeding so much and struggling so hard for their "freedom" claiming (hey should be free to go wherever they like al Ihe end of each season, even from a purely moral standpoint. So they finally get their freedom, and what's the first thing they do? Insist on one of these no-trade clauses tying them to the club for five years. Now that's whal you call a perfect case of wanting to have it both ways. To go on, though, Oakland was the MVP and rookie of the year last season and is hitting .345 now. The Iled Sox supposedly are willing to give up Lynn and Burleson (or Itudi and Cam- paneris. Oakland and Boston both are having bad seasons. The A's, winners in (heir division for Ihe past five years and world champs three times, are next to last in Ihe American League Wcsl and the Red Sox are third in the East Division. Charlie Finley doesn't deny he's talking with the Red Sox about a deal. "1 have been in constant conversation with Dick O'Connell with regard to a possible trade," he says. "I'm also has a number of players who talking with other clubs. I'll haven't signed their contracts deal with anybody yet, either, fellbw-s like Joe Itudi, Vida Blue, Gene Tcnace, Rollie Fingers, Sal Bando and Berl Campancris, and Kapstein represents them all except Blue and Bando. Only a week is left before Ihe trading deadline and with time What about Lynn? "1 don't want to bandy players' names around," says Charlie Finley. Thai still doesn't alter the fact Lynn's name has been mentioned in conversations by the Red Sox with Finley, and Whether Die A's deal with the Red Sox or someone else, Joe Hudi seems the most likely player to be traded by Finley because he probably could get Ihe most for him. Looking at the other side, though, I'd say Fred Lynn still will be with Boston next year along with Carllon Fisk. There's no queslion the Red Sox are trying as best they can to sign Lynn, Fisk and Burleson. "We want all three men lo play for this club," says Claiborne. "We have made what we think are excellent offers lo all three. Our offers were countered with offers w'hich we think are inflationary and out of line. When we gel lo the point where we think we can no longer negotiate, we'll call a press conference and put all Ihe (acts on the table so that the public and the press can judge for themselves." The Red Sox never have said what they've offered Lynn but they have said they feel they've been "very liberal." Translated, that probably means they've already offered him $300,000 for Ihree years, and if they have gone that high, which I wouldn't doubt, then Fred Lynn could make roughly five times more in salary this year than he did last year, and that doesn't sound to me like a half bad year al all. Even for the best-looking second year man in all baseball.
