Phillies, Red Sox interesting study in rebuilding

In two Northeast cities where rebuilding is never an option unless it’s done very quickly, the Red Sox and Phillies have to piece it together again.

We asked executives in both leagues which team has the bigger job. The consensus was that Boston has more work to do than Philadelphia, which didn’t gut its roster as much, but the Phillies’ payroll is more challenging than Boston’s. Can’t remember when that sentence was last uttered.
