Pitching and defense can take a team a long way as we saw last year but at some point there has to be some hitting too. And being able to score with RISP.
I really don't think the Sox need to go into a full blown, bottom out rebuild. With over $70 million coming off the books over the next two seasons there is going to be plenty of payroll flexibility for Hahn to work with and in his time as AGM and now GM he's shown some pretty nice creativity to work deals that maximize the team's resources.
