In response to MadMc44's comment:
Ben--wait long enough and you will find something wrong with every FA on the market. Why not start by thinking how mudh better the Sox would be by signing decent players.
You must be looking for more Cook's, Padilla's and Loney's. If you wait much longer you can have Loney for a minor league contract not even a ST invitation.
Rumor has it Grienke is headed to Toronto in addition to Haren and Jackson. They may have to DFA some current players if they keep signing people.
I wonder if they are worried about the Rule 5??
I can see the Sox overpaying for Hamilton and still finishing last-then what?
I know I'm being unfair Ben but you even must admit--the Sox will finish in Last Place. If I were in your shoes---put Ells, Pedroia, Bailey, Lester and Ortiz on the block---Toronto might not be interested but there might be some other contenders interested. We would be the AL East version of the Marlins.
Ben is going to get right on it , as soon as we pick our hitting coach. Now interviewing Scott Fletcher. In 15 seasons of MLB , Fletcher hir .262 , with a grand total of 34 home runs. Hopefully , he is a better teacher than he was a batter. Meanwhile , the " Royal Rooters " will continue to trash every player that another team signs. It is their way of feeling better about Ben. Those who voice objection will be labeled " whiners " and " crybabies." We didn't really choke in September 2011. We didn't really lose 93 games in 2012. And , we must remember that we have some fine young prospects in A Ball. And if you don't like it, you can root for the Yankees. Meanwhile , let's all make up fantasy trades that we can make.
