Front Office 101


So, at least we can't accuse the Red Sox of trying to be 'hasty' in their pursuit of 1) dumping Manny Ramirez, 2) acquiring a new left fielder, 3) installing a centerfielder, 4) choosing our designated shortstop, or 5) rehabilitating their public relations image.

"Stupid is as stupid does." They haven't given away David Wells, and I haven't heard of any mass runs on tar and feather outlets (preceding any Papelbon or Lester movement). If they trade away a young pitcher who becomes even John Tudorish, then a pox upon them.

Peter Gammons has been standing by his men, including the co-GMs (bad idea) under Uber-Power L-squared. Meanwhile, Theo Epstein's whereabouts and role remains unknown. We hear (a good thing) from Gammons that Theo isn't afraid to cut losses short, and ergo supported the Renteria relocation.

Now the question is, does Marte get moved for Lugo (a one year deal in place, and a guy who isn't going to be confused with Ozzie Smith with the leather? Or who blinks first, John (Midas) Henry or Tobacco Lawyer rich guy Pecuniary Peter Angelos? Who's the bigger man, the John or Peter?

What are the odds of the sox using Loretta at ss and maybe putting Youklis at 2nd?

I just started a red sox blog let me know what you think.

Sox's failure to sign Byrnes as a temp CF leaves them no options other than trading away prospects for a CF. Jacoby Ellsbury is still at least one year away from playing full time in CF. SEA will be asking more than Arryo for Reed. Sox has painted themselves into a tight corner.

Sox needs to sign either Alex Gonzalez to fill the big void at SS. Practically giving Papelborn or Lester away for a CF or/and a SS would be a disaster move.
