(Boston Herald Photo: Matt Stone)Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything) indicates that the set-up of the Post-All Star Red Sox rotation suggests a trade of Jake Peavy. Starting this Friday, Boston will send the following starters to the mound: Clay Buchholz, Rubby De La Rosa, Jon Lester and John Lackey. Anyone in particular missing from that roll-call? On top of that, Brandon Workman would be ready to take the "scheduled" July 22nd start of Peavy in Toronto. This deal seems pretty certain—assuming some contending team wants the (somewhat) resurgent Peavy.

Red Sox Report Card: Grading First Half Of Boston’s 2014 Season (Photos)

Christian Vazquez is no A.J. Pierzynski...Red Sox Nation rejoices

Jennifer WarnerContributing WriterPhoto Courtesy of Jim Rogash/Getty ImagesSince A.J. Pierzynski, aka the player unanimously hated by all, was designated for assignment, probably to a bar-league men's softball team somewhere, the Red Sox have been on a bit of a roll.
