Cherington: Cespedes plan hasn't changed

It has been an interesting week for all things related to Yoenis Cespedes.

A report in the N.Y. Daily News came out saying with Cespedes switching agents to Roc Nation, that “increased” the chances of the Red Sox trading him this offseason with Roc Nation, like it did with Robinson Cano, seeking a larger, long-term contract.

Marchand nets two as B's escape Sabres in OT
By: DJ Bean

It shouldn’€™t take messages from Claude Julien to his players to beat the Sabres and it shouldn’€™t take overtime to beat the Sabres, but the Bruins were able to breathe a sigh of relief Thursday night thanks to both.

Reilly Smith and Brad Marchand, both of whom were moved off of Patrice Bergeron‘€™s line to begin the game, connected for the game-winning goal in a 3-2 win in Buffalo (box score) to improve to 6-6-0 on the season.

Maybe the old lines would have gotten the job done just as well against the lowly Sabres, but the...

Uehara, Lester among 121 declared free agents

The conclusion of the World Series marked the pivot from the baseball season to the offseason, and with it, the arrival of the market frenzy. As of today, 121 players have been declared free agents who are eligible to sign with any team beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 4, at 12:01 a.m. Between now and then, during what is referred to as the “quiet period,” players are free to negotiate contract terms with the teams with whom they finished the 2014 season. Players (and their representatives) can also talk to the other 29 teams, but they cannot discuss financial terms until Tuesday.

The Red Sox have four players who have been declared free agents, most prominently, closer Koji Uehara. Joining Uehara are reliever Burke Badenhop, catcher...
