      Not saying that you said this but we can now get over the trading Lester for a bumb that can't get on base was a good move because in 2015 you will just have both of them anyway right?

      How can you only get Cespedes for LESTER!!!!
      Lester's contract was up at the end of the year and he could have (would have) walked away for nothing. he'd already turned down the Red Sox extentions offers because he knew he'd command big money on the open market... and he did.

      Sox aren't done...

      Not exiting but they don't need exciting big names to put together a solid rotation. Winter meetings aren't even over, it's very early.

      While none is an Ace, they are all solid starters on very team-friendly deals. I believe that all 3 will cost, per year, what Lester alone costs per year. There is no doubt that the Red Sox starting rotation got a lot better in the last 36 hours.

      I don't think they are done, either. They still lack a #1 Ace and they have the funds and the farm to make that happen.

      I can't believe that Miley is worth both Rubby and Webster PLUS another prospect. Miley is a middling pitcher from the NL West, how is he going to fare in the AL East? Those two are probably going to be starting for AZ next year, but they want someone else too? I know that they both had their ups and downs last year, but they still have time to develop.

      The starting rotation got better mostly because the team didn't have one. Buchholz is made of glass and never goes a season without stints on the DL. Kelly is a #5.

      #1 Clay Buchholz, #2 Rick Porcello, #3 Wade Miley, #4 Justin Masterson, #5 Joe Kelly

      That's a .500, at best, staff.

      The good news is it's going to be possible to get seats in Fenway at face value when the team is out of the race by July 1. You won't see many pink hats or suits in the ballpark. Another year of this and a bunch of people won't be interested in paying for the most expensive ticket in MLB to see a crap team.
