1. What's the Red Sox's biggest need at the trade deadline? Give us names to keep an eye on.
Gordon Edes: Relief help. It's the trickiest thing to trade for (see Eric Gagne), but the Red Sox's bullpen ERA of 4.71 is exceeded only by Seattle. Look at the non-contenders for possibilities: Scott Downs, Will Ohman, Brandon League, Octavio Dotel, Kerry Wood, Evan Meek and Matt Capps.
