In response to fl+adam,'s comment:
Ellsbury, Lavarnway or salty, aceves, morales, kalish
This bring us a dickey, anderson, who else?
If the Sox get another outfielder with speed then i can see Ells being trade bait.
Lavarnway is not a complete catcher yet, but still can be involve in a package.
Salty will be the catcher to share catching duties with Ross.
Aceves could be the odd man out in a deal.
Morales so far is the keeper for the pitching depth, got off to good start but then was sideline.
Kalish is a injured prone prospect but has potential, if he can get back on a positive track.
But yes, hopefully his game plan is to pick up starters. Last I heard is McCarthy is on the radar. Farrell once was the Sox pitching coach and is still familiar with the pitching roster.
Lester big question will he rebound from a bad year. I think he can.
Bucholtz can still get the job done.
Doubront was a surprise last season, but can he still do it this year. With new coaching he will.
Lackey is my biggest concern after the Tommy John surgery can he get back to his form. Probably not as good as i anticipate but can still get the Sox some wins.
Signing McCarthy will get one small hole filled in the rotation.
Morales I will like to see in the bullpen for the just incase factor.
The bullpen signing that I can see is Grilli.
The pitching rumours out there will become more realistic by this weekend.
Some names that I heard on the rumour trade talk are: Trevor Bauer, Julio Teheran, Jake Arrieta, Matt Garza, Jason Vargas and Masterson. These are not the big names we want to here but the trades can be done without giving half a team.
