In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment:
The only position I see the Sox going out and spending on is C RP and 1B.
They likely won't really spend any money at 1B. Worst case scenario they will spend around 10-13 Million on a one year contract, a relief pitcher will cost very little if they go the FA route and I can see them spending someone where in 10-15/yr range at catcher.....
And with more money coming off the books next year I doubt they have any real financial issues going into the next two seasons.
I am sure we will see some kids fill 2 or 3 of the 6 open slots: CF (JBJ), C (Lava/Vazquez), 1B (Middy- Carp/Nava), SS (Boggy/Holt), and RP (several options), but I do think we spend big to fill the need for at least one of our biggest two weaknesses we've had for years:
1) A power RH'd bat to protect Papi and take over the middle of the line-up when Papi retires.
2) A true ace pitcher.
I don't see many free agents to fill these two roles, so it may have to come via trade. That means some of the prospects may not be around to fill some of the slots listed.
If this is not done, then we may spend big on Ellsbury and a catcher (McCann or Salty), and back fill the rest with inhouse options plus maybe a guy like Morales or Morse on a short deal.
