Take it for what you will, but it seems to me that so far Boston's offseason hasn't been going as they might have hoped. First of all, as good of a player as he is, I don't think they were planning on re-signing Cabrera and now they might have to. The unofficial word was that Boston would go after Omar Vizquel or Cristian Guzman to replace Orlando Cabrera. So far, both of those players have signed else where and Boston may have found themselves in a situation where they have to sign Cabrera again, which could compromise their plans for prospect SS Hanley Ramirez.
Also, Pedro talking with NY was inevitable, but I don't think that Boston anticipated Pedro to be the one who called the meetings.
Now, I'm not sure if anyone else has the same view as me, but so far Boston has had a negative offseason. Maybe it's a sign of things to come, but then again, one big signing could change all that. You tell me. What do you guys think?
