In response to dgalehouse's comment:
Yeah. That 's why they play the games. And we lost 93 of them this year. Do you want more of the same ? Toronto just made major improvements. We acquired a third string catcher. You say we are looking for reasons to bash BC. I think you are grasping for reasons to defend him. BC just presided over the worst Red Sox team in years. So far , it looks like it will only get worse in 2013 . How is this acceptable to you ?
No, Im not looking for reasons to defend him. Im just being realistic and level headed waiting to see how this offseason plays out before I make any judgements or opinions.
Bc didnt have any room to play last year. He was financially pinned down as the FO didnt want to exceed the luxury threshold. Thus, the moves that were made and the ones that werent this past year. he now has a the freedom to create the team. Ill wait to see what he does before i criticize his every move. Ross was a good move that could lead to other moves.
Southpaw , I'm ready for bed , so this is my last post for tonight. I agree that Ben was in a financial bind last year , and I want to give him time to improve the team. Now , he presumably has some money to spend. Let's see what he does . So far , I have seen nothing that gives me any confidence that he can restore this team to prominence. Time will tell.
