I'm not good with intros so let's just get this started
First thing we obviously need to change is the rotation
So right now we have
Now we definitely need a starter, and I would like to replace John Lackey too, since while I do believe he will do better than 2011, just because he can't possibly do worse, I hate him so much, and I would like to upgrade too
Sign Zack Greinke 6/136
Bold move, but he doesn't even cost a 2nd round draft pick, has a chance to be absolutely elite, mental issues are usually overrated. Also, gives the sox a true ace in my mind
Sign Shaun Marcum 2/20
Underrated pitcher who has had success in the AL East
I don't care about bullpen, bullpen is annoying, so unpredictable, but Koji Uehara looks like a consistent, good pitcher.
Now we have
So hitters: right now we have
So, for right field, I want to trade for Shin Shoo Choo, so hopefully Ryan Lavarnway and Brandon Jacobs gets it done, if not take Brandon Workman too, if that doesn't work, take back Workman, and give them Bryce Brentz or Blake Swihart.
So I know Torii Hunter hasn't played left field, in a really long time, but I would make both Cody Ross and Hunter an offer like 2/24 and tell them you've given both of them the offer, and whoever accepts first takes the contract, this puts pressure on both of them, and hopefully will work.
For first base sign Adam Laroche for 2/28. If that doesn't work, maybe Jerry Sands or something.
So if everything goes according to plan for me
SS Iglesias or Ivan De jesus
LF I'm guessing Cody Ross, but maybe Torii Hunter
De La Rosa
