Boston's December 1 article on the Twins and the AL Central says that the Sox "lost" Bill Simas as a FA during the offseason.

Does anyone know what his contract status is? Do the Sox have an option on him? Did we have any official statement on what we wanted to do with him?

If Osuna sucks it up this year, we're gonna need Simas as a set-up guy. He was improving the more playing time he got, I think.

He is a free agent if I am not mistaken.

Simas signed a two-year deal prior to the 2000 season. He's a free agent, and the Sox haven't shown much interest in re-signing him.

Simas,among others was NOT offered abitration today,so you can probably consider him gone.

That is correct,and is a result of the agreement that brought baseball salary arbitration.Fay Vincent said at the time ,and has repeated more than once,that arbitration was the worst possible the owners could have done to themselves,and the results of salary arbitration is Bud commiting perjury in the State House to cover for the owners mistakes.

But then again what the hell do I know?

He actually looks like he could be 28 in that picture. Other pictures I have seen of him make him look much older.
