The Sox have the most important thing in the sport....a young,solid rotation,with Danks,Sale,Quintana,Axe and Santiago...even without Peavy.
They can build around that rotation,and a solid bullpen,adding parts like Gilaspie and Keppinger,to stay competitive.
Sox are not the Cubs,where they can actually go ahead and tell their fans that the plan is to lose over 100 games three years in a row to acquire good draft picks and not even pretend to try to compete until 2016..5 year plan. Cub fans will still attend during this dry stretch.
If the Sox try that, there will be tumbleweeds blowing around the park by year 2 of such plan.
