In response to GoUconn13's comment:
Remember when Boston won both WS titles, their line up were half lefties and righties.
2004 = Manny, Millar, Mueller, Veritek (SH), Orlando C., along with Mirabelli, Kapler, Youkilis, Burks, etc
Lefties were Papi, Belhorn, Damon, Nixon, Veritek (SH), etc
2007 = Manny, Veritek, Lowell, Dustin P., Lugo, Youkilis, along with Cora, Mo Pena
Lefties were Papi, Crisp, Drew along with Ellsbury, Hinske, etc.
Do you see that the line up have more power on the right side than the left side.
That is why Boston need to go after hard on mostly right handed hitters, not left handed hitter.
Therefore, they should go after hard at Napoli, resign Ross or sign Ryan L., etc.
I'm sure Ben knows what he is doing, we just have to trust his instincts. By all accounts, he has great baseball mind and understands our needs and is very good at player evaluation. I'm sure he has someone in mind if it's not Ross.
