    2012 Red Sox

    If I'm Ben Cherington here is what my offseason looks like:

    1. Hire Mike Maddux as manager.
    2. Pick up Scutaro's Option.
    3. Let Big Papi, Varitek, Wakefield and Papelbon walk and collect draft picks.
    4. We need a RH Outfielder so I go out and sign Michael Cuddyer.
    5. Sign Aramis Ramirez to a 2 year deal.
    6. We also NEED Starting Pitching so I'm going out and signing Rich Harden, Hiroki Kuroda, and Bruce Chen to 1 year deals and let them battle it out for the starting rotation.
    7. We also NEED bullpen arms now that Paps is gone so I go out and sign Heath Bell and Matt Capps.
    8. Lastly, we all know how the season ended in 2011 but I'm going to show you guys I'm all in this year and I need to make it up to you so I would like to welcome Jose Reyes to Boston.

    2012 Line-up:
    CF 1. Ellsbury
    SS 2. Reyes
    2B 3. Pedroia
    1B 4. Gonzalez
    3B/ DH5. Ramirez
    3B/DH 6. Youkilis
    LF 7. Crawford
    RF 8. Cuddyer
    C 9. Saltalamacchia/Lavarnaway

    Let me know your thought/suggestions!

    Not bad, worth a thought I guess.

    If you haven't noticed yet, there's something in the water in SD when it comes to RPs. Fact is, when they leave SD, they turn into pumpkins. I'd pass on Heath Bell, as much as I like him.
