In response to MadMc44's comment:
With the Winter Meetings starting tomorrow--Sunday--hopefully BenC has done his due diligence.
With all the time Peter A , Nick C, R. Bradford, Alex Speirer, Chad Finn spend writing about the Sox you'd think one would put Ben on the spot and ask him what his plan is to build this team. That would be my first question and I wouldn't stop asking until he presented it.
I wonder what his plan is for the Rotation?
Who are his top 10 FA targets?
What's his plan for this years closer?
What three SS would he trade for?
Would he consider a Platoon at 1 B (Pena and Reynolds/Gomez?
Would he look for Cody to play RF and Gomes in LF with Sands and Nava/Kalish backups?
We as fans Mr.Ben would like some answers not the stand pat replies next week after the Meetings are over: "We laid the groundwork for some moves"--you said that after the GM Meetings. Tell us more!
"Did you make any headwy with the FA you've targeted?" We talked with a lot of agents.
BenC--this Boston Kitchen may be too hot--please go to the Cubs and be Theo's asst. again. This is a very important season for the Sox--is it the beginning of a two year bridge? We need a strong GM that has a plan and is working the plan...
It's probably too harsh but you've got $80 M to build a team with. That's more than a quarter of all teams have for a budget. It's not like he has Pres. O'Bama's job with real pressure.
If I was Ben, I would not tell you a thing and probably have secturity remove you from the premisies if you persisted.
I know this team has not really acquired an impact player since Crawford/Gonzalez, but still, slow down. The actual off-season begins next week, and up until yesterday, the list of available free agents was always incomplete. Also, most of the players already accounted for should not have been on the Sox radar anyway.
