The Boston Red Sox have finally turned the page, at least they hope so, and are now looking forward to next season.
With the Winter meetings coming up, General Manager Ben Cherington will have an opportunity to gauge the free agent and trade markets, and asses what his next move will be.
Not coincidentally, this is every fan's favorite time of year. The time when they get to put on their couch-GM uniforms and choose who are the best players that their team should pursue.
We follow the team for all 162 games plus playoffs, and we know every minute detail about the team including the every top prospect.
We think we do, anyway.
Regardless, we do often feel overqualified in our ability to pinpoint exactly what our team's needs are, and we'll let our opinions be heard; whether anyone wants to hear them or not.
I'm no different and I'm going to tell you exactly what I think. I do, however, hope to keep these moves realistic.
Contrary to popular belief, teams don't want to trade their top players for middling prospects. Shocking, isn't it? I thought so too.
