In the wake of Jonathan Sanchez’s no-hitter, it bears mentioning that his name was mentioned in the spring of 2008 when San Francisco was looking at third baseman Joe Crede. The two sides never came close to compensation, which was a moot matter because Crede didn’t play well in spring training after season-ending back surgery in 2007. But a Sox source said last year that they were interested in Sanchez, a left-hander who has yet to pitch with any semblance of consistency, along with. The Sox, according to the source, intended to acquire Sanchez with the plan to trade him as part of a bigger deal – for a leadoff batter. The Sox’s target was Brian Roberts, who went on to sign an extension with Baltimore last February.
