David Ortiz 'would like to' finish career with Boston
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox DH David Ortiz, who has been inquiring about a contract extension, told WBZ-TV he "would like to" retire with Boston, but acknowledged it might be "time to move on" if he doesn't get a long-term deal.

"I always keep on telling people, this is a business. Sometimes you’ve got to do what’s best for you and your family," Ortiz said, per The Boston Globe. "As long as they keep offering me a job and I keep doing what I’m supposed to do and the relationship keeps on building up, I’m going to be there. Hopefully, I won’t have to go and wear another uniform.

"If I have to [leave], I’ve got no choice. I’m not going to quit. As long as I keep hitting the ball the way I have, I’ve got to keep on giving it a try."

Red Sox GM: Cespedes 'in our plans for next year'
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said in a radio interview Wednesday that outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is in the team's plans for next year. 

“We acquired him at the deadline in the [Jon] Lester trade because we felt that was the best deal at the time, we still feel that way. He’s in our plans for next year and his versatility and skill in the outfield and gives us the flexibility, could play any of the three positions," Cherington said. "We’ll just see what the rest of the offseason brings. We have a long way to go, and as we get to January, closer to spring training, we’ll know more about who’s here and how it all adds up.”

Cespedes hit .260 with 100 RBI last season between Oakland and Boston.

Report: Mets could wait to see if Red Sox put Bogaerts on trading block
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts could be a new name that pops up on the Mets' radar as they search for a new starting shortstop.

While it appears Bogaerts will remain with Boston with newly signed Hanley Ramirez moving to left field, a Mets source told the New York Post the team will be watching the Red Sox's situation.

"It’s not like we’re knocking down their door to see if [Bogaerts] is available," the source said. "But we’ll wait and see how things shake out."

Sources have indicated the reported six-year, $135 million contract the Cubs offered pitcher Jon Lester is not accurate, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Along with the Cubs, the Red Sox, Giants, Braves and Cardinals have expressed serious interest in signing the left-handed pitcher, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Despite the various teams involved, Red Sox owner John Henry said he is ‘hopeful’ the Red Sox can lure Lester back to Boston, reports WEEI.com.
