Philly Exec Sighting At JetBlue Stirs Rumors

The Great Number One Starter Search is hungry for news—any news—that might suggest the Red Sox are serious about upgrading their rotation. So, when a special assistant to Philadelphia Phillies GM Ruben Amaro is spotted at JetBlue Park, the rumor mill kicks into high gear. Suddenly, some guy named Charlie Kerfield was given more media attention that Benjamin Netanyahu. Kerfield was seen around the Sox batting cages—chatting with Boston coaches! Could a deal for Cole Hamels be far behind? Hold your horses, Nation. While Kerfield might be scouting out lesser Sox prospects—Deven Marrero, Garin Cecchini, Jackie Bradley, Jr.—he might also just really like Sanibel Island.
