I say the Sox want a closer and might want a lefty power threat if Napoli fails physical. They might want an extra one anyways. The Pirates want to shed salary so Hanrahan and Jones are both likely inclusions. Not saying I like that.

I think there's a decent chance that the Sox pushed for Jones and the Pirates were given a list of guys to look at. Could include Melancon. Maybe not.
The original source of the rumor was Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston I believe.
