In the days following the Red Sox's third World Series title in 10 years, even general manager Ben Cherington acknowledged the full 25-man roster from the championship team would not be back next season.

The Red Sox have seven free agents, three of whom were extended one-year, $14 million qualifying offers. They also have prospects who have either shown they're major league ready (Xander Bogaerts, Brandon Workman) or are knocking on the door (Jackie Bradley Jr., Anthony Ranaudo).

We're asking you to play GM here. Which of the free agents would you like to see the Red Sox bring back? And which of the young players/prospects do you think are major league ready? Vote in the polls below and let's see if Red Sox Nation agrees with me.
