WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche joined Toucher & Rich Wednesday morning to help sort everything out following Jon Lester signing with Chicago.
Don’t kid yourselves, says Adam Jones. The Red Sox “interest” in Jon Lester is merely to save face.
The Red Sox are going to market the crap out of Pablo Sandoval, just you wait.
The Red Sox may not have a good baseball team in 2015, but at least they’ll have a good television show according to Tony Massarotti.
Adam Jones isn’t buying the sincerity of the Red Sox contract offer to free agent Jon Lester.
Do the Red Sox have a proactive or reactive philosophy? Felger & Mazz are starting to think it’s the latter.
Just in case it wasn’t already perfectly clear that the Red Sox have no desire to sign Jon Lester to the contract he deserves, principal owner John Henry just made it loud and clear.

Dan Roche passes along a few quick notes with opening day right around the corner.
