Overall I'd like to upgrade the team, but other than AJ, who would have filled two holes, there just isn't much on the free agent market that would be a major improvement over what we already have, considering the Sox self-imposed payroll limits. Hopefully the trade market will open up in the coming weeks.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
