For right now, Hahn is taking a chance, we'll see how it turns out. Apparently all his talk about things in the works around Sox-fest time were simply BS.
Not a good start by him in my opinion.
I'm willing to let this off-season go.
I just think that this past off-season's FA class was pretty top heavy and fairly light after that. I really don't there there was much there for the Sox.
On top of that, we all know where the Sox Minor League system stands. The system doesn't - and won't - get fixed by dealing off prospects (no matter the perceived holes a team has).
When you look at the biggest reasons that the team spent 150+ days in First Place last year - pitching, defense and not beating themselves - none of the key players in that have really changed (and we improved defensively at C).
I'm not supporting the decision to do much pretty much nothing this off-season, but I certainly understand it.
