They'll make a run at Zito and Schmidt.
Also, reading further, aparantly the Sox are interested in Aramis Ramirez and Mark Mulder to shore up both the offense and pitching. Not a fan of Ramirez, since Lowell showed quite well that he can produce at the plate in Fenway, couple that with his solid defense, I'd like to hang onto him. As for Mulder, if that happened, I would be VERY happy with our rotation going into the season, as long as the rumors about Matsuzaka are true.
Also, there are rumblings about a possible Manny for Peavy deal. I don't know about that, but I do know we're heavily looking at J.D. Drew to replace Trot Nixon as a platoon mate with Pena.
I'm babbling about my team, but this is a great place to post rumblings that you're reading in your local paper. Keep everyone posted on your team's activities...
