    9)  30+ posters here will guess the 2013 Red Sox win total - between 68 and 98 - and the one or two that happen to have guessed right will boast that they knew it all along, there was never any doubt.

    3)The Red Sox trade Salty to the Mets for Jon Niese


    Four years of 26-year-old lefthanded starter Jon Niese for $24 million (including only $3 million in 2013), with team options for two more years at $10 million and $11 million, for one year of 27-year-old catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia for a projected $3.9 million.

    The Mets get the short end of that deal.

    Re: 10 Bold Predictions for the Red Sox Offseason

    I could see Salty, Brentz and a non top 10 prospect for Niece as a possibility.

    Re: 10 Bold Predictions for the Red Sox Offseason

    1) Sox lose out on Napoli (he uses Sox to drive up years and price and resigns in Tx)

    2) Sox pull off stunner, getting Mauer and Morneau but losing Lester and Salty in the deal

    3) Sox sign Haren

    4) Sox sign Hamilton

    5) Sox sign Sanchez

    6) Sox win division

    7) Sox win ALDS

    8) Sox win ALCS

    9) Sox win WS

    10) None of this happens if Sox sign Napoli.

    Re: 10 Bold Predictions for the Red Sox Offseason

    Can you tell I do not want the Sox to sign Napoli?

    I would want them to sign Drew, since Iglesias is gone in the Morneau/Mauer deal (hopefully they don't trade Bogaerts).  Minny pays some cash, making the Sox have a little extra to sign Haren, Hamilton, Sanchez and Drew.

    11) Sox end up with 3rd highest payroll in MLB after all.

    6) Ells stays with the team, at least for the opening day

    7) Sox sign Ross to 2 guaranteed yrs and 3rd yr team option

    8) Lackey rebounds nicely

    9) Sox won't win more than 90 but come close and make WC

    Re: 10 Bold Predictions for the Red Sox Offseason

    1) The Hair club for Men will do record business in 2013.

    2) Dustin Pedroia will become a member.

    3) As will Cody Ross.

    4) My brother-in-law already is.

    5) I will not.

    6) We will see less of the "skin head to cover the fact that I am bald" style in 2013.

    7) The bald eagle will be threatened again, this time by global warming.

    8) At least one of the cheerleaders who shaved their heads recently will remain bald for the rest of the season, making it a fashion statement for women not seen since Persus Kambata starred as Lt. Ailea (sp?) in Star Trek, the movie

    9) People will figure I am too much of a geek based on that last prediction.

    10) none of my bald predictions will come true (except 1,4 and 5)

    parhunter55 will be hired as assistant GM in charge of bald predictions and mega-deal proposals, once Ben takes my advice on forgetting Napoli and making the trade with Minny for Morneau and Mauer.

    Ice-Cream will try and seek a loan from the state of Rhode Island to help start a business but the state will reject it because they got burnt by Curt Schilling.   LOL
