I really hope so. When was the last time the Sox successfully traded a veteran player for a prospect that ever did anything? We might have to go back to Danks and Floyd (in 2007) for that.

Since then, we traded Edwin Jackson away for failed or failing prospects, we traded Nick Swisher for garbage, we traded Quentin for Simon Castro and I don't know if he's expected to pan out. The track record has been pretty abysmal. ....and if Hahn was part of the decision making team on KW's recent trades, I'm not looking forward to seeing what new bag of balls we get for our current veterans.

WSI Sox Slow Start Excuse-O-Meter
- Poor play in spring training doesn't matter (2005!)
- It's still April
- It's early May
- Wait until Memorial Day before worrying about anything
- Wait until the weather gets warmer
- '83 Sox! '05 Astros!

- Still time to turn things around in 2nd half
- In Aug/Sept: Too late to complain about poor performance earlier this season.
Special mention: - Blame Sox fans for not showing up to games as soon as the team has one winning streak.
