[QUOTE]Play 8, and let Crawford and Ells cover it, sine they have no one. Either that or may as well sign up Drew again. But most of the fans here view the RS through rose-colored glasses. They believe that Ben is a seasoned GM who knows exactly what he is doing, even though we are weaker on the bench and in RF. Last year everyone believed in Josh Reddick as the heir apparent to Drew. Those same folk are now fine that he was traded because, Ben knows. We still only have 2 1/2 sorters for 2012. I say 1/2 because know one knows if Buchholz can still be an effective pitcher or if he will be healthy for that matter. I also say 1/2, because even when he could pitch, he rarely went mor than 5 innings. But go ahead, keep on believing that our core of Beckett, Lester, Pedey, Youk, Ells, Agon, and Youk Beckett, Lester, Pedey, Youk, Ells, Agon, and Youk (maybe) can carry this team, cause that's all we have.

Ok let me help clear a few things up for you, seeing how your post is very hard to read with your pathetic ranting. We needed to make that Reddick trade for the sole purpose of filling our biggest need (stopper Bailey)who btw just saved us a ton of money at that position with not having to resign Paps. Next we are stockpilling pitchers as we speak , and I for one believes atleast one of the many starters we signed will eat some innings, and honestly thats what we need most. Add to that Ryan Sweeney who i project to do very well at Fenway both offensively and defensively. He will most likely platoon with Darnell MCdonald in right until Kalish is ready around May or June. As to your rediculous statement of ALL the Sox have is Beckett, Lester, Pedey, Youk, Ells, Agon, and Youk as our core, your wrong again. Bard, Aceves, Bailey, Buck(when healthy) ALL have had some good success in this league and will contribute this season for us. Youk i see being moved and unfortuneately probably Ells too before this season is out. We have some good talent, hopefully Bobby V can whip these guys into shape, and right the ship. The talent is there.
