In response to JimfromFlorida's comment:
What is wrong with Pedroia, Iggy, Drew, Middlebrooks, and Ciracio manning 3rd, SS and 3rd?
they signed short term good players to fill needs. They have not lost any draftIckes nor have they lost any minor league players of potential.
you all complained about bad high paid contracts and now you are complaining about low contracts for good players based upon current signings. If BJ Upton gets 15 mil and he is strictly defense then what is wrong with signings go good D and good O players?
Damned if they do and damned if they don't.
Just seems there are some fans posting here who really are just miserable / spoiled by recent success. 2 bad things have happened to RS last few seasons.  Bobby V  Injuries. Bobby V might have been the worst managerial hire in the history of baseball [Thanks Larry] and to this day can't stop throwing people under the bus. Injuries have decimated the RS in the past few seasons. It would probably be easier to list the players who have not been injured. Can any team withstand this list of injured players Pedroia, Papi, Lester, Beckett, Middlebrooks, Ellsbury, Buchholz, Bailey, JD, Lackey, Dice K, Hill, Atchinson, Crawford, Kalish, Sweeney and probably a couple more I can't think of. If this team could just stay healthy for a yr and players have seasons that they are capable of, this team will surprise many. 2 things the 04 and 07 teams had in common stayed relatively healthy, pitching staff stayed in tact most of the season. It may not be WS team but could be in hunt for playoff spot. But too many RS fans here starting to sound like spoiled Yankee fans who think team should win WS every year.
