Was it not around the ALL Star break that Tom Werner said something to the effect of: "We made mistakes. Maybe we should have signed Nelson Cruz." Another DH in our lineup sure. Sox then move Xander from SS to 3b and sign Drew. Now they going to get rid of their ace and except the young pitchers to develop with no ace around them which means lots of pressure and not a good way to develop youth. Red Sox need someone in the front office who has an eye for talent and will take charge!
Yes, I am against giving players over the age of 30 long term deals. However, the Red Sox have $$$ and not like they have players making lots of big $$$. Besides if you are going to go young you need an ace veteran SP to build around. If no ace to build around then except the next few seasons to be under .500
