First, a brilliant new video from the guys at Oral Sox:

No. 1: Interesting that they signed a Scott Boras client. Although it’s about as stress-free as managing a Boras client can get. The only way it’ll become somewhat of a hassle is if Jones rebounds to have a quality year, and I think that’s a problem the Sox would like to have.
No. 2: Flexbility continues to be a priority. The Sox are now two to three players deep at every position except for catcher, and that will be remedied shortly.
No. 3: Are the Sox positioning themselves for a late buy? Remember, last year the Sox could’ve had Bobby Abreu if they had the money and room for him. Alas, Jermaine Dye was pretty much unmovable.
This time around, the Sox should not only have the room, but they’ll almost be in a position to pick the best player available, whether it’s a corner outfielder or corner infielder.
That said, there isn’t much to say about Jones himself. He’s voluptuous and past his prime, and he had a second half just like Jermaine Dye’s. It won’t hurt too much if they cut him.
Oh, and so much for the youth movement.
