The Boston Red Sox have enjoyed a surprising amount of success in the early portion of the 2013 season, due to the pitching of Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz combined with the spark the offense has provided.
While the Red Sox have found balance this season, the pay roll is focused more on the pitching. Boston has plenty of money tied up into Lester and Buchholz, but have pieced the offense together with cheaper, shorter contracts. On UNO Sports Tonight, Gary Tanguay asked WEEI's Alex Speier if that model is something other teams will try to duplicate. While Speier thinks that is a possibility, he doesn't think the best hitters will stop getting huge contracts.
