The Red Sox in 2006? I don't think so.

ESPN has kept the whirlwind offseason in line automatically, and so you can see (below) what the Red Sox will be paying next year (assuming nothing else changes) to field a team. The salary's shown are 2005. There's also no SS (unless you pencil in Cora), no CF, and no back-up catcher on this list, so things will change.

Speaking of further trades, word out of co-GM Ben Cherington is "the chances are good" that both Ramirez and Johnny Damon will return to the Red Sox, the Boston Globe reports. Well, tell that to Damon.
