A lot of people I know are very excited about this deal. I’m not. This is another PR/money deal. It’s not a baseball deal. It’s a continuation of the short-term thinking that put this team in its current position. The fans have wanted free agent splashes, so the Sox gave them Lackey and Crawford. The fans wanted a tough manager in the off-season and the team gave them Valentine. Now the fans are calling for blood and the team is giving it to them. Gonzalez and Crawford will bounce back next year. Beckett’s track record also suggests he will pitch better next year than he has this year. The Sox are getting salary relief. Yippee!!! What are they going to spend the money on? In the next off-season, the pickings are no better than what they are giving up. What will the front office do when the fans are screaming for the team to spend in the off-season?
The Red Sox are adrift.
