07:19 AM ET 10.01 | As the playoffs heat up, so, too, do the Alex Guerrero sweepstakes. Several teams -- believed to include the Red Sox, Giants, Rangers, Reds and Dodgers -- are said to be in the running for [the free agent Cuban infielder]. At least seven teams are said to have made bids for the power-hitting middle infielder. Agent Scott Boras was recently quoted suggesting that a deal might not be too far off. The Dodgers, reported to have had a verbal agreement with a representative of Guerrero a couple of weeks ago, were characterized recently as being on the "outskirts" of the recent discussions -- but considering their history of snapping up international talent, they can never be counted out. Guerrero, 26, is said to be able to play shortstop, but some scouts suggest he's more likely to eventually wind up at second base.

I don't see where the Red Sox would be involved. Their infield already seems to be set for years to come with Pedroia, Middlebrooks and Bogaerts.

You never know how these kids are going to turn out...I'm still a little wary of Middlebrooks, he hit with some good power late in the season but I think he'll struggle to have an OBP over .300.

Agree; this is a typical Boras pre-auction media blitz.

We have got to fix relations with Cuba. It is just not right that American kids do not have access to the clinics in Havana.

They go to the D.R. instead.

Why would you sign with any other team than the team that won 2 of the last 3 world series?
