So it looks like Cherington and Valentine went to Dallas to deal with things in Boston. The only news about the team surrounds current players, here's the latest:
David Ortiz is very likely to be back either by accepting arbitration or signing a two-year deal.
Carl Crawford doesn't answer Bobby V's calls.
Andrew Miller has been re-signed.
Hopefully things will heat up in Big D soon and the team can fill some of the holes.
