Red Sox's offseason questions

Beards have been shaved, duck boats have been put away, and the long offseason has begun for the world champion Boston Red Sox. The team extended qualifying offers to three key players today -- Jacoby Ellsbury, Stephen Drew and Mike Napoli. Ellsbury is likely to test the free-agent market, but Drew and Napoli seem far more likely to return after turning in unexpectedly solid seasons. The team also has to decide what to do at catcher -- they did not extend Jarrod Saltalamacchia a qualifying offer and could go for free agent Brian McCann to take up duties behind the plate.
