Should the Red Sox finish adding to their starting pitching? Boston was reportedly casing Javier Vazquez’s starts in Puerto Rico, as the right-hander is contemplating returning to to the majors after a year off. That begs the question: should Boston add another pitcher?
The rotation is currently set to be Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Ryan Dempster, Felix Doubront and John Lackey. If another starter is added, that seems to point to a trade- – probably Doubront — happening. Let’s hear your thoughts. Yea or nay to another pitcher?
The previous poll questioned who has been the best addition to the Red Sox to date, including Mike Napoli among that crew. The answer ended up not being a player, with manager John Farrell grabbing the award. Given Farrell will make the biggest and longest-lasting impact, that makes sense. Joel Hanrahan actually had a strong showing, finishing second on the list. I like the love for Koji Uehara, but think people are overlooking David Ross. And poor Jonny Gomes only got one vote. Here are the results:
