In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment:
I think they absolutely made the right move with the Dodgers trade. As to whether it was for the sake of a buck, I think that will be better judged based on what they do going forward.
And I'll be looking out for what you say if the front office dithers and doesn't anything more constructive than they did last winter. As you know painfully by now, I have absolutely no confidence in Cherington at all. To me he is a risk averse second rater who has trouble making decisions. That story in SI this week has hinted strongly that he had just about NOTHING to do with that big trade except sit by and applaud on cue. If we have Cook and Morales as our starters next season, if Loneybaloney is our first baseman, and if we don't resign Ross and add a power hitter to the mix I will be looking forward to you joining me in denouncing what has become a total inept front office. There should be no room for pollyannas, rumpswabs and ball washers on this board because the evidence will be clear.
OTOH, if suddenly we see a different Cherington and some real progress is made towards upgrading our team, a mea culpa will be totally in order and it will be coming forthwith. As I've seen this year there is no real diminant team in the AL East and if we play our cards right we could actally make a big comeback next season.......but some real changes have to be made.
tampa is in teh hunt every year with a tiny payroll.
and now baltimire.
soemone in those orgs knows what they are doing, with much less resources.
this org never did it with "smarts" (even the champinships).
now would be a good time ot change that.
(nto that i expect that change)
more pr, catering to the $ (and not baseball first) and LL hands controlling everything
