This year, they need to move more quickly.
An offseason that began with another managerial firing must also fill the holes in a roster that opened when the Red Sox traded Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and Josh Beckett to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The deal relieved Boston of $250 million in future salary obligations, but it also left them looking for key parts of the lineup.
As they head into a true rebuilding year, general manager Ben Cherington will need a new manager along with replacements for the players sent to the Dodgers.
