D.A. fills in today on the Gresh and Zo show on 98.5 The Sports Hub. We open the show talking about the Red Sox and their newest acquisition, closer Andrew Bailey.

D.A. thinks GM Ben Cherrington has done a good job getting the pieces to sure up the Sox bullpen. He also expects the Sox to spend more money this offseason.

    Cherrington is showing some remarkable thriftiness, value, judgment and even shrewdness in his low cost quality acquisitions so far this off season. He seems to have a much better handle on the young talent coming up and understands the need to constantly keep refreshing his team with bright young “low cost” talent as Tampa Bay does. Ben has “IMPRESSED” me so far as a GM with really good practical judgment. Don’t mean to bash Theo here but Ben seems to have “seen the light” and not “automatically” think that a big name free agent is usually the answer. Usually a low cost quality young talent “under the radar” that is lean and hungry has much more “upside potential”. I love the Bailey & Melancon acquisitions. It is rare to find established players that get the big paycheck/contract and then don’t develop shades of the Manny Ramirez prima dona complex of “dogging it”. Young, healthy, talented and hungry is usually the best way to go.
