I personally don't want the Sox to start dipping into their very mediocre farm system to acquire stopgap players. Upton's been on a downslide for a while and was absolutely horrific last year (we're talking Adam Dunn bad).
If we're going to add lousy veterans to make the team palatable while the farm system rebuilds, may as well just do it through FA.
