Bloody Sox

Red Sox Rants — and other random opinions about sports

Playing for the future

It is clear from today’s trade deadline transactions that the Red Sox front office has given up on this season. The deals they made were to bring a few prospects and to clear the roster for minor league callups from Pawtucket. It’s no coincidence that Ryan Kalish — one of the bright young talents in the organization — made his debut today. At first I thought this was a smoke screen, a bit of razzle dazzle so that Sox fans wouldn’t be so upset that no big trades were made. But now I think it was an honest acknowledgment from Theo Epstein that this is a lost season and it is time to once again think about the bridge to the future.

I’ll write more about this after the dust settles.
