Especially when they bid against themselves for Drew and overpaid for Lackey.
Red Sox have been upset at many of the moves and non-moves this team has made the last few years: Teix, Bay, V-mart, ect... While it seems every year the Yankees always get their top choice: Sabathia, A-Rod, Teix.
Not saying fans are wrong or right in their frustration, but that is what the front office us dealing with.
