That's where we are right now. Oddly though, if we were in a position where the Sox were one or two players away, I would feel more confident with Kenny being the guy to go for it, even if behind the scenes. It's almost like the Sox need to get back to point B again, like they were between, say, 2000-2004, before they can even consider looking at point C.
