Red Sox Now Waiting For Others To Take Action

Cast in the uncharacteristic role of "second fiddle", your Boston Red Sox must now wait for others to act before they can move. Welcome to the new reality, Nation. We are now fans of a big-market team with a small-market mentality. Forget the happy talk from the propaganda machine on Yawkey Way, the new mantra of Boston baseball is: "They also serve who stand and wait." Other teams will need to take action on Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke and Justin Uptonthen the Carmine Hose can make their moves. Long gone are the days when we acted like real contenders—face it, we are now psychological also-rans. The Ryan Dempsters of the world—hardly the cream of the crop—are spitting on our $25 million offers. Welcome to Kansas City—at Boston prices.
