Red Sox Look For Efficiency With Revamped Medical Staff

“What we’re trying to do is finish off a restructuring that really began last winter, and get to a system that we think captures appropriately the different specialties within the medical realm,” Cherington said earlier Thursday at the General Managers Meetings. “We’re trying to build a system that balances those effectively, and doing it in a way that the players have people who fully have their best interest in mind and are at the top of their profession.

“We got 60 or 70 yards down the field last winter. Hopefully we’re trying to get in the end zone now.”

Confusing baseball for football would certainly explain a few of the injuries.

I thought they revamped their medical staff before last season, too.

The medical staff is in the best shape of its life

I think the efficiencies will come from humanely destroying injured players. Rest and rehab doesn't work so just put the poor slobs out of their misery.

I would have guessed Tom House would get shown the door along with Bobby V. Apparently not.
