Boston Red Sox Offseason Tracker: Latest Trade Rumors, Free-Agency News

The Red Sox have a new manager. Now all they have to do is find some players for him.

After shedding roughly $250 million in salaries with their big August trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Boston Red Sox can make it rain this winter if they want to.

But do they want to?

Indications are that they'd rather not. The Red Sox got themselves in a lot of trouble by recklessly throwing money at players they perceived to be stars in recent years, so they can be excused if they don't want to make the same mistakes all over again.

It's more than likely that the Red Sox will have a quiet winter this year. Their offseason could consist of making small moves with low risk and the potential for high reward. If so, hiring John Farrell away from the Toronto Blue Jays to be the team's new manager could prove to be Boston's biggest offseason acquisition.

Regardless of what the Red Sox end up doing this winter, there will be much for the denizens of Red Sox Nation to keep track of. They can do that by checking back here every once and a while, as this will be a home for Sox-related news, rumors and some speculation throughout the offseason.

The freshest updates will be right out in front.
