The Boston Red Sox off-season quiet would make a monastic silence seems like a heavy metal scream fest. There are some noted swings, misses, and a foul tip. Maybe a home run is awaiting?
Just what is transpiring this off-season for the Boston Red Sox? The lethargic movement and signing of possible reinforcements elsewhere while Boston management sit on their haunches.
Dave Dombrowski is noted for bold and very aggressive moves. Some of the most headline-grabbing trades this century was the handiwork of Dombrowski.
The Red Sox had the baseball front pages with the pursuit and signing of David Price to give the fans the ace they demanded. DD also emptied out a robust farm system with trades for Craig Kimbrel and Chris Sale. Slightly smaller deals stabilized the bullpen with the acquisitions of Carson Smith and Tyler Thornburg? But now?
The Red Sox have the decree from above to spend and exceed the luxury tax if needed, but the glacial pace has limited their options. Just who have the Red Sox missed? I can fully understand the reasoning behind certain moves, but others leave me confused.
