Red Sox are back in season
Now that the Yankees have capped off their 27th World Series championship, the work begins all over again for 30 general managers. This is their time of year. Free agents can’t start filing as early as today.
Jason Bay and Boston’s other eligible free agents aren’t eligible to sign with another team until Nov. 19.
What will this Hot Stove season bring? While the lasting image of the 2009 Red Sox is a sweep by the Angels in the Division Series, the fact of the matter is that this team is in pretty good shape going forward.
That being said, you know Theo Epstein will do something significant. The question is, exactly what?
Will there be major changes or subtle tweaks?
On a side note, it was too bad that Pedro just didn’t have it last night. I could tell from the first pitch it wasn’t going to be his night. He didn’t have that look of excitement he normally has when he knows he has his good stuff. He was so deliberate between pitches. There was little to no life on his fastball. And Matsui got him.
The next baseball game we will see will take place under the warm sun of Fort Myers. Bundle up until then!
