It’s certainly too early to judge the Red Sox offseason in any meaningful way, but the fact remains that they haven’t done as much as other clubs around the league heading towards the likely lockout. But they did sign Michael Wacha over the weekend. Here’s an introduction to the new Red Sox pitcher. (Conor Roche; Boston Globe)

The righty is not coming off of a very impressive season with the Rays, and his last few years in general haven’t exactly been filled with elite production. Despite that, here’s why Wacha was an intriguing option for this front office. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Part of the reason for that confidence is that Wacha believes his pitch mix is exactly where it needs to be. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)
