Boston Red Sox trade rumors: Will Ben Cherington pull the trigger?

With the Boston Red Sox hot streak coming to an end these past three games, GM Ben Cherington must decide what direction he wants to take with the team.

Sox Lighting A Candle For "Wick" In Peavy Deal

Cardinals Prospect Rowan Wick HomersRowan Wick is a 21-year old Canadian OF/C out of North Vancouver, B.C.—and he is the apple of Ben Cherington's eye. That is, he's the guy BenCher is asking for from the Cardinals in any swap for Boston starter Jake Peavy. Apparently, St. Louis is balking and wants to send cash and a meet-and-greet with a really polite Cardinal season...

Red Sox GM: ‘I didn’t do a good enough job building a complete offense’

Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington told WEEI’s “Dennis & Callahan” on Thursday morning that it is his fault the team is having the worst first half in nearly 20 years.

Andrew Miller Is Coveted By The Atlanta Braves

(Boston Herald Photo: Matt Stone)Until last season, Andrew Miller had been a puzzle to every team he played for. Then, the 6'7" lefty came into his own—mostly by getting control of his pitches—and had a terrific (although injury-shortened) year (2.64 ERA). This year, he's continued the trend. Through 36.1 innings, he's posted a stellar 2.23 ERA—striking out...

Ben Cherington: Red Sox In ‘Unusual’ Situation As Trade Deadline Nears

BOSTON — General manager Ben Cherington has been with the Red Sox organization in some capacity since 1999. He has seen mostly highs, some lows and other points that fall somewhere in-between. But even Cherington is a bit thrown off by the current state of affairs. “We’re in an unusual and perhaps unique position,” Cherington said before Wednesday’s game against the Chicago...

Outfield trade market bears watching

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington wasn't engaging in doublespeak when he said that all trades don't fit neatly into a "buyer's" bucket or "seller's" bucket. There are deals that a team can make that could help in the short term to bolster a team back in contention, but are designed more for their potential long-term impact. or example: With...

Contenders Should Call the Red Sox For Trades

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport Just as the header here says, I believe there are several contenders who should or need to be on the phone with Ben Cherington and the Boston Red Sox about pitching help.  Of course the issue right now is that the Red Sox brass will drag their feet with a “wait and see” approach as they are “only” 6 games out.

Ben Cherington ‘Frustrated, Disappointed’ About Red Sox’s Performance

The Sox now have a 38-47 record and sit 8 1/2 games back in the American League East. There’s not a lot of reason for optimism, and general manager Ben Cherington is still looking for answers. “It’s sort of a combination of frustrated...

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington ‘Focused On 2014′ With Trade Deadline In Sight

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington acknowledged before Saturday’s game at Yankee Stadium that his club faces an uphill battle this season.
