Red Sox Looking For Lefty In Bullpen

The Red Sox have gone to great lengths to improve their bullpen, and team in general, this offseason. One question remains for their bullpen, however, do they need a left-handed relief pitcher? I think it would definitely be good if they had at least one lefty of the 'pen, and there are many options to fix that hole. The most likely appears to be from within their organization, rookie Felix Doubront (right), who went 2-2/4.32/23 last year in 12 games. Other options from outside the organization include Brian Fuentes, Ron Mahay, Dennys Reyes, and Joe Beimel. Fuentes (4-1/2.81/47) has been linked to the Red Sox, as I think it is possible they will offer him a one year deal. I would like to see the Sox go out and get one of these players, however, I think they are most likely to stick with Doubront.
