Red Sox Targeting Starter: Kuroda, Garza, Oswalt, Saunders, Jackson?

You've no doubt heard the news that Boston traded for Andrew Bailey to be the team closer, and you've no doubt read the reactions that more or less come to a common conclusion: what now?

Jon Heyman has the answer this morning by reporting that the Red Sox are now hunting for a starter. He throws out this off-season's usual suspects as possibilities: Hiroki Kuroda, Matt Garza, Roy Oswalt, Joe Saunders, and Edwin Jackson.

Rob Neyer hysterically points out that now that the Sox have figured out their closer and lightly addressed a couple starters, their next most important needs are, "No. 3 Starter, Right Fielder, No. 4 Starter, No. 5 Starter."
