Two big thumbs-up to General Manager Theo Epstein and the management of the Red Sox for some great long-term moves in the last few weeks. Locking up reigning MVP Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, and lefty Jon Lester -- all products of the Red Sox farm system -- for multi-year deals at reasonable money gives the team a fantastic core of young talent for the next 4-6 years. Filling in the gaps as necessary with free agents and new players coming up through the ranks, Theo and his compadres have the Red Sox looking very good for years to come.
Less than 1 months until the season starts. Can't wait!
