What happens with the Sox roster? Do you trade Rios, Viciedo or DeAza? Or trade Dunn or PK (or not re-sign him) with the one who stays playing 1B, and Viciedo moving to DH? Or do you work Mitchell into an OF rotation?
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
