The Red Sox haven’t gotten the best production at first base this season, so it makes sense that Anthony Rizzo would be on their radar as the trade deadline approaches. (Chris Cotillo; MassLive)

There is certainly more than a little bit of rumbling about such a deal, including some speculation from Buster Olney. (Alex Reimer; WEEI/Audacy)

It would take a ton to get him (including getting him to waive his no-trade clause), but Max Scherzer would certainly shore up an already decent Red Sox rotation. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

There are plenty of other places where the Red Sox could use an upgrade, including the bullpen. (Justin Leger; NBC Sports Boston)

We haven’t seen it so much at the MLB level, but let’s not forget that Franchy Cordero can hit absolute bombs. (Rob Bradford; WEEI/Audacy)

If you ever wanted to learn about Garrett Whitlock’s changeup, here’s your chance to do so. (David Laurila; FanGraphs)
