Marco? Marco? Mmmmmmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrccccccccccccccooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

Your small-market, low-spending, cash-strapped Boston Red Sox are desperately trying to free up cash to acquire a premium starting pitcher.  Please, call John "Jimmy Swaggert" Henry!  Send your $20! Your $30! Your $50!  YOUR Red Sox need cash!  YOUR cash!

The needy Sox (do their red socks need darning and can't afford to be sewn?) traded shortstop Marco Scutaro a few months after trading their other shortstop (Jed Lowrie).  Umm, I am all for trading for pitching at ANY time, but seriously?  Free up money for Roy Oswalt or outfielder Cody Ross?  I am both flabbergasted and speechless.

  • So that John Lackey signing for $17.5 million per year? Wasted cash.  Sure would be nice to dump that into Liverpool for that mid-fielder they need for the Mersey Derby next year...umm, I mean a shortstop for the Red Sox. 
  • Daisuke Matsuzaka? Wasted cash.  
  • Carl Crawford? How much money to fill out the disabled list? 

Something tells me Ben "Boy Wonder" Cherington is thinking that he and Theo "He who shall not be named" vociferously fought against these "seat-fillers" eating up the budget and not waiting for Anthony Rizzo to develop at first base instead of unloading him (and other prospects) for Adrian Gonzalez (of whom I am a huge fan of and think is a great fit, btw).

Well, I guess those insanely priced tickets (for regular and exhibition games!) along with the pound and pounds of crap related to "Red Sox Inc." that ownership grubs from Joe Everyday Fan is desperately needed to field a competitive team (for Liverpool and Roush Racing!).
