The Recent Additions

In addition to starting pitcher Chris Sale, the Red Sox have also recently picked up right-handed reliever Tyler Thornburg and first baseman/DH Mitch Moreland.

Alex Speier writes about how it all happened.
The conversation was largely philosophical: What did it mean to pursue deals that would make the team better over the next three years but that would have consequences beyond that?

I thought I was extremely happy when the Red Sox got Chris Sale. The Herald tells me otherwise:

"The terrified screams could be heard as soon as the Chris Sale trade was announced: The Red Sox had given up on the future and completely sold out for a chance to build a superteam in 2017."

Turns out I'm screaming in terror. Whoops! My bad.
