Another post-mortem on the AL

Another post-mortem on the AL East moves: The Red Sox effectively got a front-line pitcher for nothing (at least nothing of note off their current roster), whereas the Yankees had to move one of their more potent (albeit part-time) members of the lineup in order to procure Vazquez. The Vazquez move is a solid one, for sure, and potentially a superb long-term move if they can re-sign him. But in the here and now, the Sox gave up less, and that’s a better net gain, for the moment, I think. We’ll see the ripple effect soon, I am sure.
