Not alot of teams can handle losing 2 starters out of rotation (Danks, Floyd) + 2 starting position players (Viciedo, Beckham)- especially a team as thin in overall org talent as the Sox.

The quality (lack of) of our call ups in this situation and the fact that D. Wise is on the roster are a complete indictment of the last 4 years of the KW era (2009-2012).

I'm not ready to hold Hand accountable (yet)- he has very little to work with- at the 40 man roster level or as far as trade bait goes, etc.

So many misses by Williams (pun intended)- Adam Dunn, Tyler Flowers, Jared Mitchell, Nestor Molina, Brett Morel, Zach Stewart, Simon Castro, Trayce Thompson, Keenyn Walker,etc. It has been many years since a major KW move really paid off- poor trades , poor FA signings, poor draft choices (excluding Sale).
