No, I understand your concern, it's perfectly valid, but this is also the corner you paint yourself in when you play like **** for the first month of the season and bury yourself early. The Sox, unfortunately, don't have the luxury to not ride their best players now, they're in catch up mode. So you're kind of damned if you do or damned if you don't. But I think it's preferable that if you're going to go down, you do so with your best players contributing as much to the cause as possible (just my opinion).
