Dodgers Rumors: Los Angeles interested in Red Sox' Jon Lester

The Los Angeles Dodgers, with their deep pockets, are going to be major players at the trade deadline, perhaps making a big move or two. They are in the race, as they took back the top spot in the National League West, defeating the San Francisco Giants 5-0 last night. One player that the Dodgers could make a run for is Boston Red Sox starter Jon Lester. They could never have enough...

The Boston Red Sox’s 2013 World Series banner now is accompanied by a white flag, figuratively speaking.

Ben Cherington: Red Sox ‘Listening,’ Not ‘Closing In’ On Other Trades

The Boston Red Sox made their first trade deadline splash Saturday by dealing pitcher Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for two minor leaguers. The next splash might not occur right away. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington and manager John Farrell told reporters Saturday at Tropicana Field that the Peavy trade doesn’t necessarily mean Boston is nearing other...

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. Hopes were held high with the winning streak after the break, but after their 14 run performance on Monday, their offense has dwindled and the winning has come to a halt. Now nine games back in the division and 6.5 games out of the...

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.

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. And, sure, they have a chance...

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

NEW YORK — The Boston Red Sox haven’t kicked the bucket just yet. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington acknowledged before Saturday’s game at Yankee Stadium that his club faces an uphill battle this season. The admission shouldn’t be interpreted as the Red Sox preparing to keel over, though, as Cherington’s attention remains on the present. “Focused on 2014,” Cherington...
