I thought we're going to battle for that 8th playoff spot ... at least we're being promoted to "not good enough to win a title"
Of course we're not yet in a position to win a title, but teams are not constructed over night. What happened to Boston was a miracle facilitated by a "friendly" trade. If we're going to contend next season, it will open up more chances to get cheaper star-level players. And once we prove we can battle for a title, I'm sure MLSE will ok going over the luxury tax a bit.
