For the third time in the last 10 seasons, the Boston Red Sox are the World Series champions. They bested the Cardinals in the best-of-seven series four games to two with their Game 6 win on Wednesday night. It was the first time they've clinched a title at home in Boston since 1918. The parade is Saturday.

Once the celebration is over, the Red Sox have some serious offseason business to address. That makes them no different than any other team, really, but it seems like they have a surprisingly long offseason agenda for a team that just won the World Series. Some items are more pressing than others, obviously. Here's a rundown of what GM Ben Cherington & Co. have on their hands in the comings weeks.

Jacoby Ellsbury

The team's leadoff hitter and center fielder is a free agent and expected to command a nine-figure contract on the open market. The Red Sox have top prospect Jackie Bradley Jr. ready and waiting to take over, but it might be unrealistic to expect him to match Ellsbury's production right away. Does the team pony up the money to retain their player or give the kid the job?

Mike Napoli

Unlike center field, the Red Sox do not have an prospect waiting to take over the first base job. Not unless they're willing to move Will Middlebrooks across the diamond, which does not seem to be in the cards at this time. Napoli originally agreed to a one-year contract worth $39 million, but it was cut down to a one-year deal with a $5 million guarantee after a pre-signing physical revealed a degenerative hip condition. Napoli is very productive and should come at a reasonable price, but is Boston willing to take the plunge knowing his hips are a long-term concern?
