Re: “Go Sox

Much as I love Gene Lyons' columns, I have to quibble a bit about the Red Sox. Great great camaraderie. This is the team that spent $50 million just for the right to negotiate with Matsuzaka awhile back. Not as flagrant a waste as Pablo or Hanley, however. This year's Sox dugout has more hired guns that an Italian western. Martinez, Kimbrel, Porcello, Sale, Price, Eovaldi, Pearce, Moreland. They don't need a farm system, that's what the other MLB teams are for. The Dodgers-Sox world series illustrated a real problem with baseball. Teams like Kansas City and Miami build contenders and then dismantle them at a dizzying pace and drop to the bottom in the standings. Solid organizations like Toronto and Tampa Bay can't compete with Boston and NY's megabucks. Meanwhile, the heart of KC's 2015 championship team, Davis, Moustakas, Cain, Hosmer, Zobrist, are all playing elsewhere and were important parts of other teams' playoff runs.
