Red Sox will add more than arms in waiver deals

“For each trade you make there are 20 that didn’t work,” said Rizzo. “It’s a process that takes time and requires great research by our staff. We’re not afraid to make a deal. For me, when the deal succeeds for both teams it’s a success.

“We have great discussions with our staff. We have great debates. I want people to tell me I’m wrong and back it up with how they feel about a player. We love analytics, but what this is all about is the scout who drives that extra 100 miles to see a player and make an evaluation and a scout who is strong in his convictions about what he sees and how that player can help our ball club. That’s what we have that’s so great.”
