The Boston Red Sox finally made the move and got the anchor that their rotation desperately needed. That starting pitcher came at a cost however, Matt Barrett checks out whether the price really was right for the Red Sox…
After a while you’re just glad that it’s over. A public admission that the pretence can’t go on anymore, this Red Sox team isn’t making the playoffs, isn’t functioning as it should and it’s time we all just accept this and move on. Of course most people with a set of eyes could tell you that, it’s been a season of poor pitching, media hurricanes (storm is too nice), manager goofs and ridiculous, astounding injuries.
When your team puts players of value, with high contracts, on waivers in August, you know the game is up. More importantly, you know the front office knows the game is finally up. It’s not that difficult a decision, the Red Sox sit 13.5 games back on the Yankees at the top of the AL East. 8.5 games back on the AL Wildcard race and 7 games under .500, having lost 4 in a row and 7 out of their last 10. That’s not post-season form, that’s Chicago Cubs form (it really is, they’re last 10 game record is identical).
