. My first move would be tore-sign Ross (3 yr, $22m) and Ortiz (2 yr, $23m) of course.
next trade for Gerardo Parra who is being shopped by the D'backs. They want pitching so i offer Aceves and a minor league pitcher or two. He's our new CF. Yup
I then sign torii hunter to a 2 year, $18m deal with the 1st year worth several more million than the 2nd. Kalish and Podsednick will be the backups. Kalish will get to start a decent amount of games to keep Hunter fresh and hopefully eventually become the full time starter.
id then offer up a 4-5 year $50m deal to Anibal Sanchez and improve our staff
trade Lackey and a minor leaguer to the Mariners for Figgins. No i dont think Figgins is great or anything but it actually saves the team several million and he can play SS. he's hit better on the road, no surprise and has always hit well at Fenway. In fact of all the stadiums he's played 20 or more games in, Fenway is the one he hits best in. Didnt play here last year but 2011 when he hit only .181 on the year he hit .308 in 4 games at Fenway. One of only two parks (comerica) where he hit above .250 that year. He can split time with Iglesias who i dont think will ever hit well in the majors.
next up is to trade Ellsbury to the nationals who have been looking for a CF for awhile now for Michael Morse and Jordan Zimmerman. (i realize minor leaguers will probably be added to the deal but im not sure who so...yeah)
I know some wont like it but it's actually feasible IMO and gets the team younger and cheaper while still being competetive
