Can the Red Sox win with this lineup?
The Sox have traded the two-time AL batting champ for two former Gold Glovers. Can the Sox make the playoffs with this new lineup?
Apparently not... RED SOX lose, winning run scores on CABRERA error! So much for the improved defense. Theo single-handedly ruins the Summer for Red Sox nation!

No they can't...they still address their major malfunction of not enough pitching...look lets put this trade in perspective since it goes back to last winter...what Theo and the 3 Stooges (the owners) did was, in essence, trade Nomar AND Alex Rodriguez for Orlando Cabrera!

You all need to come back to reality. These new players change nothing. The Sox have no chance to even make the wild card because Timlin, Embree and Foulke suck and cant put a game away. Francona should be fired because at best he is a poor coach. I am a season ticket holder and have to admit the truth. Sox will finish 14 games out of first and not even get the wild card. Sometimes the truth hurts.
