And here are the pitching prospects. (Ian Cundall; Sox Prospects)

For what it’s worth, Sale isn’t really worried about who is being called the ace of the staff. (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive)

With their big moves having been made, the Red Sox still have a little bit of payroll flexibility to play with. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

It’s looking likely that the next domino to fall will be a trade from within the rotation depth. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

David Ortiz made some headlines about possibly coming back from retirement, but it was almost certainly just a joke. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

Before he was sent to the Cubs, the Red Sox reportedly made a strong push for Wade Davis. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Mitch Moreland was lost in all of Tuesday’s hoopla, but he’s basically just another version of Travis Shaw. (Paul Swydan; Fangraphs)
