The Red Sox Front Office: Geniuses.
I seriously doubt this next piece has anything to do with the fact that the New York Times owns the Boston Globe which owns a good portion of the Boston Red Sox.
I encourage you all to read Murray Chass' wonderful treatise on why a team that is going into mid January without a shortstop, second baseman, and centerfielder is full of geniuses because they signed J.T. Snow to play first base.
I assure you, I am not making this up.
The Red Sox are smart enough, though, to know they have to fill those holes. If they cannot trade for a shortstop - Julio Lugo of Tampa Bay, for one - they are prepared to put Alex Cora at short. They don't have a Johnny Damon replacement in house, but they are confident they can trade for a center fielder.
Yes, the front office is very smart so everything will work itself out and there's no reason for Red Sox fans to worry. They are smart enough to put Alex Cora at short. Pure genius.
