Ben Cherington in position of strength

ORLANDO — The general managers meetings are always about information-gathering rather than actual deals. Toward that end, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington will come away from this year’s meetings with the feeling that he can make himself one whopper of a deal, or two, if he wants, and that there is plenty of interest in Boston’s starting pitching.

That’s a pretty nice position to be in.
