Boston Red Sox: 10 Free Agents That Ben Cherington Should Pursue This Offseason

The Boston Red Sox are officially in rebuilding mode after their worst season in 47 years and August's blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

That deal freed Boston from being under the rock of salary commitments totaling more than a quarter of a billion dollars. That gives GM Ben Cherington money to spend this winter, but he has to be more careful than his predecessor was. More bad, long-term contracts will snooker them again a few years down the line.

With that in mind, Cherington knows that he will have to target players who can be signed cheaply or to short-term deals. Don't be expecting to see anyone receive a five-year contract from the Red Sox this offseason.

And certainly don't be expecting to see Josh Hamilton, either.
