Red Sox still hunting for pitching

Where will the Red Sox turn for starting pitching?

This is perhaps the most critical area of the team and arguably the biggest need they have. It was subpar last season and perhaps Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Felix Doubront, and a returning John Lackey will collectively improve it. But the Sox need some outside help. Ideally they need a top of the rotation starter, but it appears that ship has sailed.
