Johnny Cueto is one of the top free agents left on the market. But if he had it his way, he'd already be playing for the Red Sox.“Johnny really wanted to go to the Red Sox,” Cueto's agent Bryce Dixon told Peter Gammons' website. “His idol is Pedro Martinez. He wanted to be with him. When he threw the shutout in the World Series, one of the first things he said was, ‘€˜Did Pedro ever throw a game like that in the postseason?” MORE: Top 15 remaining free agentsCueto's chances of signing with Boston were virtually washed away when the Red Sox signed former Rays, Tigers and Blue Jays ace David Price to a mega-deal.  The Dodgers appear to be the current favorite to ink Cueto after they missed out on Zack Greinke and Jeff Samardzija. But the 29-year-old World Series champion has already turned down a six-year, $120 million offer from the Diamondbacks this offseason, so maybe he's holding out for an offer from his favorite team.“Because I’€™m a free agent, and I’€™m just going to pick the best choice to go,” Cueto said through translator Hanley Ramirez back in August. “The main thing — I would like to come here (Boston) because it’€™s a championship-caliber team.”Cueto, who struggled with consistency last season, finished 11-13 with a 3.44 ERA and 1.13 WHIP during the regular season with the Royals and can still be a quality No. 2 starter on a contending team.
