Red Sox Get ESPN's Top Grade For Off-Season Results

The A+ mark comes because of the acquisitions of David Price, Craig Kimbrel, Carson Smith, Chris Young, and Roenis Elias. Essentially these pickups—in Bowden's view at least—fulfilled the key roster needs of a top-of-the-rotation starter, closer, fourth outfielder, and bullpen depth. Bingo!
