As we've learned this week, those things tend to take care of themselves. They are not legitimate concerns for fans to have.
Based upon his comments, Rick Hahn has given every indication that he knows the Sox need an overhaul. All Hahn has said is that starting position, which is the hardest thing to acquire in baseball, is a strength for the Sox. That is correct. But the Sox defense, speed and offense need that overhaul and Hahn knows it. I like the moves he has made so far and am looking forward to his next moves.
BTW, I just thought of a trade that would make sense for both clubs: Alexei Ramirez to St. Louis for David Freese. I have no idea if this has ever been discussed but it makes sense to me. Any thoughts?
