Epstein, One Call To Get Two Players

If the Red Sox were sincerely interested in winning this year they would have solved their problems with one phone call to Toronto.  If Theo Epstein worked a little magic here to obtain Jose Bautista and Scott Downs the Sox would be a contender again.  It is clear to see that they lack a power bat in the Outfield and the bullpen has been awful.  Send Okajima to the National League and get a chip back for him, he should have been benched weeks ago anyway.  It is time to realize that prospects don't always work out.   Unless you make a trade eventually to get rid of a Starting Pitcher where is Bowden or Casey Kelly going to play anyway?  There is still time for the Red Sox to make a move but it remains to be seen if Epstein is focused on winning this year.  Maybe the recent posting that the Red Sox television ratings are down will make Epstein think over his decision.
