    Right after the All star break

    Sox play 7 games at home against the Yankees and the Rays (4 game series) and head to Baltimore for 3 game series.  I think Sox will look to upgrade soon.  These 10 game stretch against division rivals placed at #2,3, and 4 are going to be very crucial.

    Re: Right after the All star break

    Sox definitely need to upgrade because right now they are a bunch of losers.  Yes, yes: it's true they have played more games than any other team in MLB, are well past the midway point in the season, and have the best record in the AL and a 3.5 game lead in the AL East.  But that's all behind us now and the future is fraught with peril.  We can also safely ignore the Sox having the best OPS in MLB and scoring the most runs because those are just meaningless statistics from the past.    A decent rotation with Buchholz on his way back?  Forgedaboudit. 

    The Sox have to play three of the best teams in MLB history, the Yankees, Rays, and Birds, and will probably lose all ten games without a significant change in personnel. 

    One small problem is that Farrell is probably loyal to the duds who have been playing so far, so Ben Cherington will need to kick things off by dumping his manager and seeing if Bobby V is available.  After that, money and any and all minor league prospects should be put on the line to get some really good players.

    I'm sure Cherrybomb is always on the lookout for an upgrade.

    The problem is ...at what cost?

    I don't really think a GM looks at a specific point on the schedule and says "we've got to get somebody before this series of games or we're fried!"

    The other problem is with the 2 wildcard teams per league, so many teams are not giving up by July 31, so the pickings for reinforcements get awfully slim.
