all makes sense. It's just hard to digest right now. Simply put, it will be painful to lose Lester, even if it's the best thing to do.Rovin Romine said:
I understand what you're saying. Following any franchise involves emotional highs and lows. The question is will it hurt the franchise in the long run? I can't imagine that it would. Will it alienate people to the point where they don't follow the Sox next year? Again, I can't imagine that it would.
Not to rehash all the points made thus far, but if a Lester trade now is in the Sox's best interest, it should be made. If signing Lester is in the Sox's best interest, he should be signed. We can't debate the merits of either because we're not privy to all the information the Sox are privy to. In the future, we can look back and judge if the approach/deal worked out or not, but we'll never really know whether it was a wise decision at this point in time.
