The Red Sox may be on the verge of making “bold” moves before the July 31st trade deadline. According to a report on ESPNBoston.com, the Red Sox are actively looking to make deals in hopes of bolstering the roster for a playoff push.

“This is a club that has been built on bold moves over the years, going way back to the Nomar Garciaparra trade in ’04 as one example.” Said team president Larry Lucchino regarding the trade deadline. “There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Ben Cherington and the entire baseball operations department, and to extent John Henry, Tom Werner and I, are all pointed toward working hard to July 31.”

At 47 and 45, the Red Sox enter play on Thursday ten and half games behind the AL East leading New York Yankees, however the club is just one game out of wild card contention.

One main area of concern is a pitching staff that ranks ninth in the American league, with a 4.03 ERA. Regarding the pitching staff, Lucchino stated: ”We need to stabilize the pitching rotation. This club leads all of baseball in runs scored, not just the American League. The defense has been good, the bullpen has been solid, we do need to stabilize the starting pitching. I do think good things will flow from that.
