Chris Young a perfect fit for Red Sox (2:29)

Jim Bowden ESPN Insider 

Dave Dombrowski President of the Boston Red Sox told me prior to the off-season his three goals were an impact closer, a right-handed hitting 4th outfielder and a number 1 starter. Kimbrel check 1, Young check 2, now he tries to get David Price for the trifecta.

Are the Red Sox shopping Hanley Ramirez?

Many expected Boston to try to trade Ramirez this offseason, but there are conflicting reports on the team's efforts to do so. MLB rumors roundup

The Red Sox signing of OF Chris Young could open the door for trading Jackie Bradley Jr., but it seems like a quality depth signing to me. Bradley had a big August but also owns a career .298 OBP and Rusney Castillo has yet to show he can hit in the majors. Young is a good fourth outfielder who could start if either falters, leaving Brock Holt to back up in the infield.

Dave Dombrowski just told us that the two area's he's looking to improve are a number 1 starter and a right-handed hitting 4th outfielder.

Would Boston trade for Jose Fernandez?

The Red Sox have buckets of money and a deep farm system, so it's more logical to sign a free-agent starter. But if they don't land a top arm, they could pursue Fernandez. See the four prospects that Boston might consider swapping. Other possible destinations
