GETTING ANXIOUS: CSNNE.com’s Sean McAdam noted Red Sox fans are “getting antsy” in the aftermath of the Blue Jays-Marlins trade two weeks ago, and the Tigers’ signing of RF Torii Hunter “generated more angst.” It is “not even December and already people seem overly anxious about what the Red Sox are going to look like in April.” It is “unlikely the Red Sox are going to make one of those big bold strokes this winter.” Nor should the team “be expected to pull off a giant trade.” The last time the Red Sox were “bold and made big moves was after the 2010 season, when they ‘won the winter’ by signing [Carl] Crawford and trading for [Adrian] Gonzalez -- two players they couldn't wait to unload less than 20 months later” (CSNNE.com, 11/26).
