Sox trade Stars/Get Salary relief/In 1st Place---Same future for C's ???

Many fans were lamenting the Sox cleaning house of a few stars.
And as I am also an avid Red Sox fan, I was not completely happy with the unloading of Gonzo, Crawford & Beckett to the Dodgers but if anyone hasn't noticed, Sox are 20 games over 500 and in 1st place. We also did not renew our manager Francona & got rid of Valentine after 1 year.
OK, OK, I don't expect the C's to achieve the same results but as the Sox did, we unloaded a lot of salary & lost our coach, Doc, too so, I repeat, I'll try to be positive with KG & PP gone and will be positive that our pretty good players, a young coach and some good draft choices brings us # 19, at least, before the Lakers catch us.

Baseball and basketball are two different animals. Aaa teams could be pretty competitive with MLB. Dleague teams would be destroyed by any nba team.
