the way i look at it they gave up two great bats in beltre and vmart and got two back. don't get me wrong i love the moves. they got younger and beltre wasn't worth the big coin. im just talking about the line up and the offensive production for this year. to me its two steps back and two forward. i would feel much better if vmart was still around. but this team is about the same as last years except they are healthy. beckett blows and is anything but a ace and lacky was a major disappointment. then you have dicek hopefully things work out but im not counting on any world series.
