05:45 AM ET 12.06 | The Red Sox were prepared to return home today without the two-time Cy Young Award winner, though the rebuff by the Twins may be temporary. No one on either side is declaring that negotiations have come to an end. For now, Twins general manager Bill Smith is not satisfied with the packages proffered by the Sox. He is content to wait to see if the Sox show any willingness to part with pitcher Jon Lester and outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. The Twins were still trying to lure other teams into the bidding. The Mariners signaled some interest; the Dodgers, a team that has the young talent required to tempt the Twins, did not.
