I just don't understand why Omar Minaya and Theo Epstein still have jobs. Seriously think about this for a second.

Last Off season Omar Minaya went and signed what seemed like every closer available in baseball for his bullpen. He forgot you have to have a starting rotation to even use all those bull pen weapons.

Not having one good arm after Johan Santana in the rotation he signed bullpen pieces then went and signed Oliver Perez. I would have fired him right there.

Now this off season Theo Epstein seems to have forgotten that you need offence to win a baseball game. With no Manny, David Ortiz not the force he use to be, and no Jason Bay the Red Soxs have no Offence!!!.

Pedroia, Youk, and K-Mart are not enough to lead an offence. Cameron is no Jason Bay and definitely not a Manny.

The Yankees have Jeter, Granderson, Tex, A-Rod, Posada, and Cano. If my math is right, it is much easier to stop three weapons than six.

He went and signed John Lackey to an already good pitching rotation which was good as it was and didn't address the most glaring hole, OFFENCE.

Not everyone can be like Brian Cashman.
