DPM - you can be guaranteed if Drayton McLane makes a deal with Boston involving Tug Hulett, then Tug is going to become a super sub with OBP and pop
The biggest whine I have so far is that a lot of good glove MIs are off the board. IMO, Vizquel could have done for Desmond what he did for Andrus and will do for Alexei Ramirez, Gonzalez would have been an adequate starter for 1/2 a season or so, and even McDonald could have been useful depth. Couple all that with not getting into the Hardy trade, and I'd have to say we've been a bit slow to fill the stated goal of acquiring a defensive SS to start or at least push Desmond (and shifting Guz to 2d). Maybe they have made a decision that they don't intend to move Guz because he is not too far from average defensively, or maybe they've decided to take the floaties off Desmond and see if he can sink or swim in the majors, but I'd like to see some MI veteran depth, and the pool is getting thinner.
