BOSTON - It never sounded too serious, but there were trade rumors surrounding Koji Uehara as the deadline neared.
BOSTON -- While Red Sox pitchers from Jon Lester to Andrew Miller find themselves in the middle of trade rumors, it appears that another potential free agent pitcher will be staying put.
The Red Sox have suddenly started to play well, winning seven of their last eight games.
The All Star break gave everyone a chance to catch up on some R&R and it also gave Jessica Moran some time to analyze the first half of the Red Sox season.
It's been a while since the Red Sox have approached the trade deadline with seemingly little hope of reaching the post-season.
