The Old Savings and Loan

Just in time for the holidays, the Red Sox have acquired George Bailey from grumpy old Mr. Potter.

Check that, the Sox acquired Andrew Bailey from the A’s and have apparently found their new closer. Which also means Mark Melancon will be the set-up man and Daniel Bard will really be in the rotation. The Sox also received Ryan Sweeney along with Bailey in exchange for Josh Reddick, Miles Head and Raul Alcantara.

A good addition. Now the Red Sox need one more starter and a few depth signings for AAA are all that is needed. That and some good luck.
