Here would be my selections (and the sheer number of them says all you need to know about the current overall talent)

Bummer
Covey
Farquhar
Fulmer
Gomez
Gonzales
Jones
Minaya
Ruiz
Santiago
Scahill
Shields
Vieira
Castro
Cordell
A. Garcia
L. Garcia
LaMarre
Tilson

Obviously the Sox aren't probably going to cut half of these retreads, stiffs and deadbeats but in a perfect world, every single one of them would be out the door for me for various reasons...no talent, can't stay healthy, shows little hope of getting better, age etc.

Really getting bored and frustrated here in the hospital so I figured this would be a good way to pass some time.
Glad you're on the mend, Lip.

I don't care who is on the roster in 2019, in my mind, it is another rebuild year.

Of the names on this list, Fulmer, Bummer and Gomez are the only ones with a chance at the 2020 roster. Not a solid chance, but a chance. Maybe Cordell is a dark horse.
