Inside this edition of Without a Curse, Alex covers all angles of David Ortiz's surprise retirement announcement: the curious timing, how the Red Sox should move forward and how Ortiz will be remembered.
Life without Ortiz would be a whole lot easier if, say, a pitcher like Jose Fernandez were on the Red Sox. That idea may not have be far-fetched, either, as the Marlins are reportedly shopping the 23-year-old phenom hurler. Alex explains why Fernandez should be the Red Sox's No. 1 target this winter, and that they should stop at nothing to acquire him.
In the "Around the League" segment, Alex lambasts the Marlins for even considering a Fernandez trade and also talks about why the Cubs are in better shape than any other team in baseball.
