    Nice thread Yaz. We need something cheery these days.

    I'm glad we kept our kids too, but only wish the moves we did make were geared towards helpingz us in 2014 and 2015 and not just being "bridge players".




    Keeping our "kids" is geared toward helping us in the future.

    Yes, but that doesn't mean all our signings had to be geared towards the here and now. They are not mutually exclusive.

    Since the Sox aren't just going to "skip a year" in the real world and the free agent options were limited (there is no one who they "could" have signed that I wanted them to sign), I think Ben has done a solid job of putting together a competitive team so far without risking the future or getting caught up in "Feeding the Monster" like Lucchino and company did over the past few years.  I'm sure they would have liked to land a "shiny new star" to appease the fan base, but it's clearly been cost prohibitive to do so, as of yet.  Settle the first base situation, head to camp and see what happens.  If they are competitive near the deadline, they still have plenty of resources to go get what they need.
