The Red Sox made it fairly obvious how badly they wanted to add bullpen depth this offseason. Dan Wheeler was someone they thought would help, so they went after the veteran hard — and it paid off.
Wheeler was on Red Sox Live on Tuesday, and he spoke about how the Red Sox showed interest in him from the beginning, something that ended up being one of the deciding factors for him to come to Boston.
