MLB: Boston Red Sox at Kansas City Royals Amy Kontras-USA TODAY Sports

Jon Lester could have re-signed with the Red Sox but the front office may have made that more difficult than it needed to be. (John Tomase; WEEI)

Hopefully that won’t happen with another left-handed ace by the name of Chris Sale. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)

While Sale mulls over his options, the pitching side of things shouldn’t take a hit. (Ken Rosenthal; The Athletic) ($$)

Xander Bogaerts is another soon-to-be free agent with decisions to make. (Justin Leger; NBC Sports Boston)

If the Red Sox decide to deal a catcher, Christian Vazquez may be the most likely candidate. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Perhaps having just a single closer isn’t the plan for the Red Sox. (Dakota Randall; NESN)
