How will Cherington respond to Blue Jays trade?

Gary Tanguay, Lou Merloni, and Steve Buckley are in studio to discuss the Blue Jays acquiring Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, and Mark Buehrle from the Miami Marlins.

First thing's first: Should the Red Sox be worried that they could finish in last place again next season?

The Yankees, Orioles, and Rays are solid as it is. Now, the Blue Jays are a lot better. Does that move put pressure on Ben Cherington to bring in some bigger parts to contend?

The guys on Sports Tonight hope that isn't the case, and that the Sox stick to the plan to rebuild from with and wait for the players that make the most sense for them.

But one thing is for sure -- the AL East is the most competitive it's been in quite some time.
