While the Yankees are signing every available player who can fog a mirror while breathing on it, all has been quiet from Red Sox Headquarters.
Since Theo and Company are about as talkative as the CIA when it comes to what in the world they're thinking, this isn't a completely unexpected development. But watching CC, Burnett, Tex, and the head janitor for the Kansas City Royals sign multi-million dollar deals with the MFY, it's be nice to see SOMETHING coming out of the Bat Cave.
I don't care if it's the announcement they are re-upping Tek, bringing back Manny, or adding 37 more seats to Fenway situated right behind the pitchers mound, just give me something.
Tell me Schilling is coming back as designated quote for the CHB, Millar is being signed as the new first base coach/designated naked guy to ruin any post game locker room interviews, or Luis Tiant has been hired to try and light Tito's shoes on fire every game. I just want SOME sort of news regarding the Olde Town Team.
The Royals and the Reds are making headlines right now for Pete's sake, and the team whose won 2 championships in the past 4 years is doing it's best impression of a mob informant on the witness stand.
They do realize we are around 4 months away from Opening Day and don't have a SINGLE CATCHER ON THE ROSTER right?
In the back of my mind I realize this team came within one game of the World Series and buying the fantasy league equivalent of a major league roster promises exactly NOTHING. But it sure would make me feel better to read "The Boston Red Sox have signed......" in my paper tomorrow morning.
Meanwhile, we're waiting on the arrival of a certain Englishman from New Zealand to arrive for a visit; safe travels 'Scouser.
It'll be great to see you again.
