Olney: Free agents may avoid Sox

By ESPNBoston.com



ESPN's Buster Olney says there's a good chance that after this tumultuous season for the Red Sox and the increased media scrutiny, free agents will shy away from signing with Boston -- especially when other factors are equal.

"Really, it's going to come down to whether the Red Sox can separate themselves in their bidding for free agents," he said.
