Yeah, the "5 years away" stuff is complete garbage. The Sox have a lot of money coming off the books between now and the end of the 2014 season. It's likely to be painful the rest of this year and likely next, that much is true, but things can change quickly in pro sports.
If the Sox make a couple of astute trades, allocate resources wisely and get anything at all from their minor leagues, they can be a better club by 2015.
