I'm surprised the Red Sox aren't doing anything

For the past several years I have felt like the baseball off-season has gotten shorter and shorter.  There's always been big player signings and other news to keep the sport relevant during the winter months.  But as a Red Sox fan, this November/December has been extremely boring.  I'm not really sure what they are waiting for.  From a PR perspective, this is a terrible time for them to sit around and do nothing.  Tickets aren't selling, and right now is probably the least enthusiastic Boston fans have been about their team in the last ten years, maybe more.  Now here's the key point of this blog: I'm not saying that baseball-wise they necessarily should be making trades or signing expensive free agents.  They've got a solid team, and if a few things had happened differently last year it's a whole other story.  But in order to appease the average angry and disinterested fan, I'm amazed that they haven't.
