Thinking about it today - using the current roster:
Definite keepers - Aceves, Beckett, Bard, Buccholz, Lester, Morales
Not sure - Atchinson, Doubront, Papelbon, Tazawa, Weiland
Say goodbye - Albers, Bedard, Bowden, Lackey, Andrew and Trever Miller, Wakefield, Wheeler
(that's a significant housecleaning - this is a wish list, but with contracts and all probably not all doable)
Position players -
Definite keepers - Saltalamacchia, Lavarnway, Gonzalez, Iglesias, Pedrioa, Scutaro, Crawford (pains me to type that), Ellsbury
Not sure - Anderson, Aviles, Lowrie, Reddick
Bye Bye - Varitek, Jackson, Drew, Gathright, McDonald
So only 14 definite keepers from the current roster. That would shake things up...and be quite impossible, likely!
