    Time to end Cherrington's free pass

    I get it - the sox won it all last year so there is tons of residual love going on.


    That has to end.  Cherrington has constructed an absolute mess of a team.  He needs to get a hitter into Boston via trade immediately.


    This is the most anemic offense since the days of Todd Benzinger.


    Cherrington goes and gets Drew?  He should be getting killed for that move; just a horrible sign.


    This team is completely incapable of scoring and that WILL NOT  change unless Cherrington does something.


    Instead they tinker with the roster and cross their fingers.


    GO AND GET SOMEONE WHO CAN HIT


     


     


    Defense.  It is still important.

    So he should give up young talent that is struggling due to age for some veteran past his prime just to maybe get into post season?

    Why do people think all Cherington has to do to get a hitter is go to the MLB office and fill out some forms?

    Everything you said has been said over, and over, and over on this board for the past three months. Either you're still giving Cherington a "free pass" or he hasn't been getting one all along.

    The truth is he made the right moves last off season. This is a "bridge" year where the Sox tried out some of their youth. Sadly, not all of them have panned out as hoped. JBJ is looking like a lost cause. Middlebrooks is done in Boston. And Doubront is not going to make that next big step forward. The fact that some of the young players are not contributing is compounded by underperforming veterans; Pedroia, Ortiz and Victorino. 

    Everyone knew that the 2014 Sox would take a step back from 2013, but we didn't know it was going to be this big. Cherington's decisions are only wrong in hindsight; they were the right choices at the time. Even brining back Stephen Drew made sense at the time; the players were lobbying for Drew to come back and the left side of the infield was in dire straits. It didn't work out, but that was not clear at the time the move was made.

    Thank you for taking the time to explain what's obvious to many of us.
