    The Ultimate Goal of any Organization is to Win, right?

    I understand the reasons why, but the number one objective is to win. Period. If that is the case, you put the team with the best chance to win out there, right?


    I understand they couldn't do anything with him, but Ruby De La Rosa should be started instead of a guy who hasn't won since 4/25 and who's ERA since May 1 is 5.88 right? 


    If he doesn't pitch well tonight, we could be seeing the Red Sox on the phone finding anyone in SF, Atlanta, St. Louis or Pittsburgh looking for a guy who might have more success back in the NL.

    Actually...in MLB it is to make as much money as possible.

    It appears that the number 1 objective of the front office is to give Boras as much money as possible, winning be damned.

    Perhaps the RS think that the most long term wins is attainable by trading Peavy for a minor prospect, then using the money to augment another position.

    Peavy's agent is Axelrod, not Boras.

    Yes, that is correct. Unfortunately, as has been mentioned here before, the SOX FO is vehemently opposed to creating a dynasty, and will continue to do whatever it takes to prevent that from ever happening.

    Nope.  the original premise is wrong.  The number one objective is to make money.  In pro sports as in any business that means keeping expenses at a minimum and generating as much income as possible.  

    While professional baseball teams are privately owned and therefore their books aren't open to the public, it APPEARS that a owner can make a little money by losing but can make a LOT of money by winning.  If the Sox were dedicated to winning over making money they'd be signing free agents regardless of the price, and the Luxury Tax be damned! - but they're not.  Instead they're signing lower priced players whom they think can help the team win.  

    Last year it worked.  This year it didn't.  But don't kid yourself, the team is still attaining their goal of making money.  The only thing is, it's a little money rather than a lot of it.  That's why I say they'll be back even more in the hunt next year - because "There's money in them thar wins".

    Except they've won the most world series titles of any team in the major leagues since the year 2000. So which dynastic team do you think they are opposed to becoming? All the ones that won less titles than them?

    You've oversimplified it, the number one goal is not always to win every game. An NBA example: they rested Duncan more in the regular season to make sure he would be ready for the postseason. 

    So no, if you know what you are doing you don't try to win every game no matter what the cost or implications. 

    In this case, they are probably trying to move Peavy and want to keep him in the lineup to get that done. 

    So there are other considerations in play. 

    On the other hand if they think Peavy gives them the best chance to win today, they are nuts

    The ultimate goal is to upset ADG.  Very easy to achieve.
