and Theo sums up the teams 2007 needs

"We probably have more needs than we’ve had the last few years," said Epstein. "We need a starting pitcher, a couple of relievers, one lefthanded [reliever]. We need right fielder, a backup catcher. We need a shortstop, then we need to fill out our bench with quality players to compliment the regulars. We need a second baseman as well."

Foulke's in a great position. He'll probably take the player option, then he'll get over 5 mil. for 2007. Life is good for these players.

Well damn, that's a lot to ask for.

How well do you think they can/will fill those needs?

" And we have all those needs and no money. I mean, how can anyone possibly expect me to fill all of those holes with a payroll of only 150 million. How can we possibly compete when the Yankees can spend 200 million. This is such an outrage, I hope people realize how hard it is to be the GM of the Red Sox. Excuse me, I need a quick cry, I just dont have the money to make this work, maybe I will take another 3 months off during this offseason instead of fixing the mess I created"

Well they can spend up to $148 Million without paying tax, and they probably will. Bigger question is does Theo really know talent? New England is beginning to wonder.
