We need to find some major league bats somewhere. I just worry even if we do clear salary and blow up the team, there is no guarantee that this regime can pick up the right free agents.

HOUSTON — Uh-oh, we've got another smiler.

Kind of defeats the whole purpose when you have quality starting pitching only to get rid of it & turn a strength into a weakness. I think it would be much easier to replace crappy hitting.
If the Sox get rid of Sale, there better be near-top 1st pound picks involved & at least 2 everyday starters included. And forget about Toronto, they're depleted.

Despite a 19-22 record, this may look encouraging: Sox had the lead in 32 of 41 games10 of those losses are on the bullpen, 4 was on the abhorrent now-ceased Floyd, and if the starting pitching does its job:

I know that most teams aren't as willing to part with their prospects as they used to be.The last thing I want to see is a repeat of last year, with a mediocre team competing in a bad division. Then everybody gets pennant fever and the Sox become buyers at the trade deadline, only to see the team crumble in August or September and fall short of the playoffs.I've seen that scenario unfold too many times; that's why I never hopped on the bandwagon in 2012... I knew exactly what was going to happen.Be either really good and make the postseason, or really bad and get a good draft pick. Mediocrity is the WORST thing possible.

After two blowout losses to a last place team, there's no other option right now.But Gordon Beckham is coming off the disabled list. This isn't any commentary on Beckham's abilities or lack thereof. Hypothetically speaking, let's say that Beckham is an MVP caliber player. One player can't negate the fact that...1. This team has no Catcher.2. This team has no leadoff hitter3. This team has no First Baseman4. This team has no Designated Hitter5. Left Field is spotty at besttick, tick, tick... BOOM.

Well, Beckham is a very good defensive 2B, and Gillaspie is a serviceable 3B. You're right, this team has no CF either. DeAza had a career year in 2012, and his defense was suspect then.People who weren't around from 1986-89 are about to find out what what those years were like.
Things are so bad we're now counting half of a baseball player into the Good Pile? Sox are actually up to 27th in hits, 29th RBIs, 26th in AVE, 28th OBP.As bad as things were in 1986-89, the TV announcing crew was top notch!
