I was going to post this in the "Fellowship of the Miserable" thread as an example of a great piece of Red Sox reporting that you just don't see in the Globe anymore, but screw it.
For a few years now, Alex Speier has been consistently producing the best Red Sox-related content around and he needs a thread dedicated to his work. His knowledge of the minor league system is as vast as anyone in the Boston media, he understands statistical analysis, and, most importantly, he treats his readers with respect.
This opus he posted yesterday, The Blueprint: Defining the Path to the Next Great Red Sox Team, is essentially the defining article of the 2013 Boston Red Sox. Read it, and then use this thread to continue to discuss his work throughout the season.
