I don't think it's about Sanchez so much as the fact that they picked up Sanchez and have not done anything else might indicate to some that the Sox do not intend to pick up other players making Sanchez the pickup, which sucks because it is something the Sox need and if this is how they address that need, that is something to cry about. Maybe I'm wrong.
