The Boston Globe expects the Red Sox to make another push to acquire Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. The Red Sox made an offer to the Mariners at the trade deadline, but talks reportedly never got serious. Hernandez is having the best year of his young career, posting a 2.45 ERA with 196 strike outs.

The Mariners are open to extending Hernandez, but an offer loaded with highly touted prospects might be hard to pass up.
The price for Zambrano may not be as steep as Hernandez or Halladay, so there could be a match there.
If you're a Red Sox fan, which of these pitchers do you want to see the Red Sox acquire?
