About Me: Love the Sox/Bruins/Pats, born in Boston a million years ago, now displaced. Played and coached in a much simpler time. Still get a little too shook up when the B's or Sox lose. Oh, and soccer is not a sport.

    Yeah, its not over yet, but when the Sox' miserable season ended, it was a little exciting to see what the Sox were going to do in the offseason. Even moreso than in 2012-13.  They had a ton of availa more »

    I like Zimmerman a lot, but the Sox have too many 1 year guys as it is.  I suppose if the price was right it would be OK, but certainly not for real prospects. Strasberg?  Yeah, pay the price, absolut more »

    ... there are "guys (plural) in THIS HOF induction class that took PEDs", so now you have to consider everyone else.
