AZ did not want Ellsbury. Period.
Irrelevant, and childish bugaboo on your part. Ellsbury plus the draft compensation would have netted a 2nd rate 3rd baseman.
Childishness is your specialty, not mine. There's no way AZ takes Ellsbury. A 3 way deal might work, but not the one you suggested. I'd have made your deal in a flash, but it was unrealistic on many levels.
They would have wanted Middlebrooks, which you bashed notin for saying he'd have given him up for Upton.
They would have wanted a lot of players, stooge, but they got a 29 year old 2nd rate 3rd baseman named Martin Prado.
They got more than what you offered, with no Bogaerts included.
It would have taken Bogaerts, who you now deny saying you would have included. You story changes by the minute.
False, stooge, I'm not denying anything.
You just printed that you offered anyone but JBJ, Barnes and Bogaerts. That is a bare-faced lie.
You are reacting like a balling baby. I've said, over and over, that Bogaerts should be included only if that's what it took to top the other offers.
Yes, if you could read, that is exactly what I said you said, clown. The fact is Ben has no way of knowing every offer AZ got, and there is no way AZ takes your clownish offer without Bogaerts. They probably would have said no, even with Bogaerts. Most of us tried to tell you they'd want Middlebrooks and/or JBJ, but you wouldn't budge- as usual.
It didn't take that, as the Braves didn't send their top prospect at SS or their top 2 pitching prospects.
Because they didn't need a SS. They needed a 3Bman, something you never got then and are in denial over now with your clownish Prado comment.
Wren was able to acquire Upton without having to include prized young shortstop Andrelton Simmons or either of his top two pitching prospects, Julio Teheran and J.R. Graham.
Stooge, you are a site endorsed shill who simply spouts off the popularity button that is the pride and prejudices of most Red Sox fans.
I did not write this, so once again, you are confusing who you are arguing against.
Red Sox GM's don't get it, and you certainly don't get it with your constant "it's the starting pitching" nonsense. The Red Sox will continue to lose too many games where the overall pitching in good in that particular game.
I have you down for being happy with our 3-5 starters, but it is known how you also covered all the bases by bashing Dempster and lackey, so when they fail, you can claim you were right no matter what happenes.
