With the coffers replenished the Sox would seemingly now have first dibs in the free agency market.  Would it not seem plausible that a mere three acquisitions would stabilize the team while waiting for some of the youngsters to develop.  For discussion sake, precluding the rebuilding of the pitching staff, consider the outlook and flexibility by signing free agents Swisher (RF & 1B), Napoli (C & 1B), and Ross (LF). 

This is a lineup that I wholeheartedly could cheer for.

Ellsbury CF
Pedroia 2B
Swisher RF
Ortiz DH
Middlebrooks 3B
Ross LF
Gomez 1B
Napoli C
Ciriaco SS

bench: Lavarnway, Podsednik, Aviles
