And anyone who thinks they'll let him go and will suddenly fall to Tampa-like levels without doing anything about it is either A)a pretty big wishful thinker or B)a Yankee fan.
I should also mention that A and B are basically one and the same
Not necessarily. When you subtract a .300, 40 HR, 100 RBI guy out of your lineup, you are going to be hurting unless you replace him. Last time I checked, no one like that is available especially even up for Manny and his contract.
The sox have Craig Hanson who is a STUD reliever...he will be closer next year IMO...we have Hanley who played in AA this year...had 26 SB's, .275 avg, but only 6 HR's, which was lower than i thought...and Pedroia, who could be 2B next year...he hit 325 for AA in 04, and only 260 in AAA this year...and Youkilis can start next year if he needs to...and Shoppach will be Tek's replacement (if he ever needs one ) then we have Adam Stern in OF, and many pitching prospects (dinardo, alvarez, papalbon, delcarmen) we may struggle for a year or 2...but we are building for the future for sure.
