Subtitle: Tough decisions are on tapCARLSBAD, Calif. — Lost in the discussion at the GM meetings of what happens if the Red Sox lose closer Craig Kimbrel is how what happens beyond next season affects this offseason.That’s because the nucleus of this team has a one-year shelf life the Red Sox need to address sooner than later.Four players — Chris Sale, Rick Porcello, J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts — are guaranteed to be with the Red Sox for only next season before either their contracts expire (Sale, Porcello), they enter free agency (Bogaerts) or opt out of their deal...

We may be waiting a while for contract extensions

Don’t expect them to be right around the corner The upcoming offseason for the Red Sox figures to be a very different one compared to the previous winters in the Dave Dombrowski era. In each of the last three Hot Stove periods, Boston headed into the winter with at least one major need and a willingness to go all out to fill it. First, they traded for Craig Kimbrel and added David Price. The following year, they traded for Chris Sale (and also Tyler Thornburg, though that probably doesn’t belong in this conversation). Finally, last winter they went out and signed J.D. Martinez. Every...

Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Dustin Pedroia, Craig Kimbrel

Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Dustin Pedroia, Craig Kimbrel

In today’s links, we’re already looking at next season with a healthy Chris Sale and Dustin Pedroia and a possible replacement for Craig Kimbrel. Or maybe Kimbrel will just resign. That would work as well. Chris Sale should be back and fully healthy next season. If Dustin Pedroia is as well, he’ll lead off the season opener. (Ian Browne; MLB.com) I will never get tired of reading about Alex Cora’s exceptional first season as manager. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) ($$) Craig Kimbrel is a free agent this offseason. I’d expect the Red Sox to bring him back, but if not, get ready for...

Dave Dombrowski could be next in line for extension

Are the Red Sox considering a contract extension for Dave Dombrowski?The subject was on the mind of principal owner John Henry yesterday, when he was asked before the World Series parade about the team’s interest in trying to negotiate with Chris Sale, who will be a free agent after 2019.“It’s something I haven’t discussed with Dave, the timing and all that stuff,” Henry said. “We have the same issue — we’re running out of time with Dave Dombrowski as well. There are a lot of things to discuss this winter.”Dombrowski, the president of baseball operations, signed a five-year...

Eduardo Núñez opts into final year of his contract

Eduardo Núñez opts into final year of his contract

I missed this one So, I straight-up missed this one earlier in the week. In my defense, I was a little distracted by that whole Red Sox winning the World Series thing, and this bit of news apparently came down immediately after Boston won the whole damn thing. Defensible? That’s up to you! Anyway, this news is just about as surprising as the Red Sox picking up Chris Sale’s $15 million option for next year. Eduardo Núñez had a player option for the final year of his two-year contract signed last winter, and he opted into that and will be a part of Boston’s roster for the winter. And,...
