Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, speaking at a charity event hosted by Kevin Youkilis, told reporters that he was not overly eager for his team to acquire another starter. Though he took stock of an American League landscape that has become more daunting with the moves by Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder (among others) from the National League, Valentine also suggested that he is comfortable with the current shape of the Red Sox starting staff and that adding more pitching would complicate his planning for spring training, given the potential struggle to find innings for all of the pitchers competing for rotation spots.
“Another pitcher would be, I guess OK,” Valentine told reporters. “It’s not at the top of my wish list. ... I think we have a lot of numbers right now. If all the reports are right and the three starting pitchers [Jon Lester, Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz] we have penciled in at this time are healthy and ready to go, I think we have plenty right now to make a very good staff. To add another guy, I think it adds to my challenges of spring training.”
