In response to softlaw2's comment:
Most braindead aping in fantasy baseball talk, "save a year of control".
The Red Sox have spending nearly 200 million a year in total labor costs. Making roster construction decisions based on trying to save about 5 or 10 million in about a half a decade is utterly incompetent!
As I stated, Ellsbury should be gone.
J. Upton should have been acquired above the garbage the Braves unloaded.
R. Johnson should have signed to a one year 1.5 to 2M contract.
Minor league contracts should have been offered to Pods and Sizemore.
If Bradley, Jr. sustains offensive consistency (he's been ready defensively) through the spring, he should be the starting CF'er on opening day.
The 2013 outfield depth chart should be:
LF J. Upton (long term)
CF R. Johnson and Pods/Sizemore as placeholders for Bradley, Jr. (Long term)
RF Gomes, Nava as placeholders for Kalish (Long term)
Spending 23 million on Shane and Ellsbury is incompetent! Almost as bad as Crawbust and Ellsbury. Waste of time and money!
Kalish is going to be fine, long term, and to the extent he struggles, more of his time should be split with the RH bench outfielder.
Stiffy also argues that he's right about John McCain. How he should be president & Paul Ryan should be Treasury Secretary. Which of course means he's right again.
I've never known an adult to spend so much time trying to convince everyone they are right about so many things????
& since you can't prove he's wrong, that confirms that he must be right! Ahhh! I get it! He must be right???
Stiffy! The king of circular logic! Just ask him :)
