I love that the Sox are not intentionally trying to tank seasons like their neighbors up north, but it would be nice to have some more position players to be excited about. I haven't really had that since Thomas and Ventura ... 20 years ago.
Maybe Hawkins will be enough. How far is he away?
You need 11 wins to get the World Series title in October.
They only won 85 games this season. +96 games will take the division in any year. Any less than 96 will increase the probability of a division loss.
They don't have to tank seasons, but they could definitely produce more homegrown talent. The FA market is always filled with risks, and the trade market demands more prospects.
