The Red Sox may want to trade to upgrade some positions (*cough* third base *cough*) but can they even afford to? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Even without a real “identity”, the Red Sox have managed to be competitive because of their overwhelming talent. (Evan Drellich; CSNNE)

If it wasn’t for lobster, David Ortiz may never have ended up coming to the Red Sox. Don’t believe me? Why don’t you ask Pedro Martinez. (Pedro Martinez; The Players’ Tribune)

Speaking of Big Papi, his number will be retired. Who is the next Red Sox legend that deserves that honor? (Chris Teeter; Boston BP)

Hanley Ramirez was supposed to help make up for the power that Ortiz took with him, but thus far he’s struggled to find it. (Chad Jennings; Boston Herald)

Robby Scott and the Red Sox bullpen had a bad game on Wednesday. Should it be a warning sign? (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)
