The Pink Hat Offseason

Note: This is not meant to be taken seriously, my offseason plan can be found here.


We all know that 2011 sucked. I mean seriously, we missed the playoffs for the second year in a row. We need to make some changes, and we need to make them now.

The Manager

Terry Francona won two World Series with us, but he's gone now. Tony La Russa just won the World Series, so we should sign him. I know he's retired but fuck him, he's the new Red Sox manager.

 

Red Sox Free Agents

Every single one of our free agents was part of a team that didn't make the playoffs, let them all go.

 

Red Sox Trades

Josh Beckett was one of the Fried Chicken Boyz in September. He's a clubhouse cancer so we should trade him. I'm sending him to the Angels for Mike Trout and Jered Weaver, because Beckett is still an Ace, and they have to give up something for him. Jarrod Saltalamackya isn't an elite catcher, and we need an elite catcher. The Giants really like pitching, so even though John Lackey is hurt I'm going to trade him for Buster Posey. We don't want John Lackey here and I'm sure he needs a change of scenery. I'm going to send Lars Anderson, Ryan Kalish, Daniel Nava, and Micheal Bowden to Seattle for Felix Hernandez, because Jack Z wants prospects and we want Felix. I'm going to send Josh Reddick, Alex Wilson, and Ryan Westmoreland to Cleveland for Shin Soo Choo.

 

Outside Free Agents

Since I let Big Pappi walk, we need a DH. I say we should sign Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder to do that. To be our fifth starter I'm signing CJ Wilson. For the Bullpen, I'm signing Joe Nathan and Heath Bell to pitch in the bullpen, but making Bard our closer. Bard throws the ball really, really hard, so he should be our closer. I also sign Jose Reyes to be our shortstop, we need to compete with the Yankees, and to do that we have to spend money. And I sign Coco Crisp as a 4th outfielder.
