    Friday | MassLive.com

    Today was a big difference from last July 31's non-waiver deadline, when Boston dealt Jon Lester, John Lackey, Andrew Miller and Stephen Drew. The Sox still have a chance to deal some veterans by the Aug. 31 waiver deadline but this has to be a frustrating day for the front office.

  9. Mike Napoli, Alejandro De Aza remain in Red Sox lineup after quiet trade deadlineRead the original story

    Friday | Boston Herald

    As the 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline approached, Mike Napoli was seated at his locker at Fenway Park, eating from a paper bowl and scrolling through his cell phone. They sent Shane Victorino to the Angels on Monday and acquired right-handed reliever Ryan Cook from the A's on Friday, but aside from those minor moves the Sox are looking at the same roster they entered the day with, one that's full of players under questionable long-term contracts and one that still lacks the pitching depth to be considered a contender, even in 2016.

    Thursday Jul 30 | Boston.com
