The Red Sox have already helped out their lineup by reportedly signing Mike Napoli to a three-year deal. Now, it appears that Ben Cherington is setting his sights on shoring up the starting rotation. The Sox are interested in Kyle Lohse and, to a lesser extent, Anibal Sanchez, according to multiple reports from Tuesday’s winter meetings. However, Sanchez’s asking price might be a little too high, since the former Tigers starter is reportedly seeking something in the area of six years and $90 million. No one is drawing more interest than starter Anibal Sanchez , with a mystery team now joining the #Dodgers,#Angels,#Tigers,#RedSox,#Royals.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 04, 2012 #redsox interested in lohse. but they seem to be taking care of offense 1st. also like anibal but found price very high— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) December 04, 2012 Lohse, who will be 34 next season, went 16-3 last season for the Cardinals with a 2.86 ERA. Sanchez, on the other hand, is only 28, and finished last season with a 3.74 ERA after coming to the American League in a midseason trade.
