Does anyone recall the reference to the above quote or am I really showing my age? Anyway, three transactions that are not worthy of their own post or a longer discussion is below.

Since Theo has admitted his mistake in reacquiring Dougie with the Belli, thereby giving up on Bard and Meredith, it is not necessary to rehash the shortsighted trade. The one-year commitments for versatile, but expensive players - Hinske and Tavaras - are not worthy of a post as well. The Sox are overpaying for their ability to be plus non-featured players. Tavaras can fill any role on the staff at above replacement level production. Hinske is an average hitter that can play each of the four corner positions. He is sort of a corner utility player who can swing the wood some. Allocating dollars to these players certainly is not efficient, but this is the kind of depth that a large revenue club can purchase. These transactions should not have much impact beyond 2007.
