Today, on this sacred 12/12/12 day of days, we're allowed to reflect.
We can reflect on the fact that in all likelihood, none of us will be around to see the next such phenomenon, as this is the last one of this century. It allows us to reflect on our finite time on this earth and how we should be making the most of it.
More importantly, today allows us to reflect upon how it is Dec. 12th and the Boston Red Sox have yet to make an impact move via free agency or trade.
Mike Napoli? Sure, he's a solid player, but not that key addition that will bring glory to this team again.
Shane Victorino? Remember that time he had an OPS of .680 in the first half last year, then added just three home runs after the break?
Needless to say, the moves Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington has made this off-season have underwhelmed, but luckily there are some options still out there.
