This team is gross.
If there's one thing that stands out about Ben Cherington's teams, it's holding onto players much longer than makes any sense ... Breslow, Bucchholz, Napoli, Victorino, Uehara, and on and on. The Sox have become the anti-Patriots.
Some of those guys have had their moments, but there just aren't nearly enough players on this roster that the Sox can actually rely on.
More and more I think there needs to be some organization-wide change, not simply firing the manager or the general manager, in order to really fix things.
Also, why did a team that is already so heavily invested in an ancient DH with no ability to play in the field sign -- for lots and lots of money -- two guys in the off-season who should be playing at DH and really drag the team down when they're forced to play in the field?
