Hunting season begins

Tomorrow is when free agents can start taking offers from other teams. Basically, most players never resign before this time because they want to see how the market is playing out (a notable exception is Mike Timlin, who knows where the love is). So tomorrow it all begins in earnest. The Red Sox will be able to go after other team's players (such as the White Sox's Konerko) and other teams will be coming after our players. We will finally see how much the organization values certain players in particular Damon and Mueller; although Olerud will be interesting as he can still contribute and it seems that the Yankees want him (do we bid on him to keep him/keep him away from the Yanks?).

I must remind myself to take deep breathes. Tomorrow it begins. Tomorrow the Sox will begin to fall apart and be rebuilt.
