IIRC, both Boston and Florida were said to have made offers or at least had talks about Gathright.
I think TB was pushing for one of FLA's better pitching prospects and talks broke down between the two because TB wouldn't budge. Not sure what BOS offered, if anything. This is all off of memory from spring training, so I may have some of this wrong, but that's what I thought I remembered.
