TATB says ...Red Sox. Hope springs eternal, baby. In all seriousness, the more we consider this roster, the better we like it, particularly given the knowledge that the Red Sox have the resources to add a big bat at the trade deadline should they require one. They didn't make the sexy moves like the Yankees, but they very well may have made the smarter ones. This is one very good baseball team. Can't wait to see them play.
