MLB Rumors: Will Boston Red Sox Sign Josh Hamilton, Michael Bourn, Mike Napoli And Stephen Drew?

The Boston Red Sox unloaded the majority of their massive contracts in one swift move toward the end of the 2012 MLB season when they traded Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The move shed payroll and made the Red Sox one of the worst teams on paper.

Anyone who thought that would last more than a couple of months really does not know how this team – much like many other large market MLB teams – operates.

The Red Sox are not rebuilding. They are reloading. The two are quite different. When you rebuild, you start from the ground up, and the process is usually a lengthy one. Yet, when you reload, you get rid of some large contracts and replace them with others.
