REPORT: Red Sox Trade Expected By 2PM

Ben Cherington must have to be somewhere special on Thanksgiving. After a whirlwind Monday of double free-agents signings, there are reports out that the Red Sox will be engaged in a major trade by 2PM Eastern time today. Rumors are swirling about who their partner might be—but it's likely to come down to starting pitching targets from three teams (Phillies, Nationals, Reds). The likely suspects from our end are Yoenis Cespedes, Christian Vazquez and Matt Barnes—although one of the teams (likely Philly) may hold out for including Mookie Betts in the package.
