The big Red Sox news over the weekend was surely the report from Jim Bowden that the Red Sox were having “serious” talks about trading Andrew Benintendi. The outfielder is in a strange spot right now, though. What exactly is his value? (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

As far as the pitching side of things goes, the rotation certainly seems to be the focus at the moment. It is, of course, hard to blame them for that, but they shouldn’t forget about the bullpen either. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

It’s been a bit since Will Venable was hired as Boston’s new bench coach, and he’s ready to get his tenure with the team started for real. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Boston certainly got more for Mookie Betts compared to Cleveland’s return for Francisco Lindor. That shouldn’t be much of a relief, though, says Jason Mastrodonato. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

The NFL put a postseason game on Nickelodeon over the weekend, and MLB should be looking into doing something similar. (James Dator; SB Nation)
