'Back To The Future' For Re-Tooling Red Sox
Look for the Red Sox to scan the rosters of small and middle market teams and identify those players who are in-line for big salary jumps. Boston can be the 'White Knight' for these franchises by trading for their younger talented players (who have already proven their worth) and pay them more than their existing teams can. Call it Moneyball 2.0. It will be fun this off-season to guess where the Sox might prowl for this kind of talent—and also which "prudent" free agent signings they can pull off. It will be an off-season unburdened by the heavy weight of $250 million gone west. Bring it on.
