    My guess is Villarreal or Holt.

    Both. Castellanos is on the 40 man also along with Butler and Lavarnway. All are candidates along with Vilareal and Holt. There will be a trade as well. not sure when, but a pitcher is leaving.

    I think that the Sox keep Holt for depth.  I also think that a middle IF has to be signed.  Maybe even re-signing McDonald?

    Just because they have agreed to sign him he isn't officially re-signed and I'm pretty sure the sox have at least one trade in mind before that takes place. End of problem!

    Holt is the only utility infielder right now.

     

    Villareal or Lavarnway are the most likely candidates.   Do they really need 5 catchers on the 40 man roster?

    Holt is good depth along with Castellanos. A solid UI who can play 2b, SS and 3b if needed. I think they have more faith in Xander than Middy, but arent ready to "give up" on him.

    Lav is either going to be handed a 1b mit (my choice) or traded. Butler is good catching depth along with Vasquez. Out of the 3, Lavarnway is basically the odd man out at catcher. Hes #5 on my depth chart at catcher.

    Actually Holt is one of two utility players with Castellanos being the other one, he plays 2B and 3rd as well as all three outfield position.

    I smell a minor trade coming for a backup outfielder in exchange for 40 man casualties

    Yeah we are constipated at that position and it is in demand by the league.  I have been feeling that Lava is the odd man out based on the fact that he has no position.  Maybe shipped off as part of a salary dump with Dempster for something of real value.

    I think the two keys to releasing players is their talent[future] and who might not get picked up.

    Since Castellanos I believe snuck through waivers a few months ago he is a major candidate. And I think Holt is the least talented and I also think he could be resigned so he would be my second choice. If the season started tommorow I might be much more concerned about depth and roles. But both would be easily replacable in the next 4 months.

    Also believe a trade or 4 is very likely. A starting pitcher, plus a LF, plus Lavarnway and Morales could easily be traded at any moment. Not to mention all the minor leaguers.

    If the Sox replace Holt via trade, does the 25 man roster have room for any other additions (save for another trade)?

     

    LINEUP

    1) Nava, LF

    2) Victorino, RF

    3) Pedroia, 2B

    4) Ortiz, DH

    5) Napoli, 1B

    6) Bogaerts, SS

    7) Middlebrooks, 3B

    8) Pierzynski, C

    9) Bradley, Jr, CF

     

    BENCH

    1) Ross, C

    2) Carp, 1B/OF

    3) Holt or Trade, IF

    4) Gomes, OF

     

    It seems like Farrell would prefer 12 pitchers, so we would only have 4 guys on the bench.

     

    1) Lester

    2) Lackey

    I'm partial to Castellanos for sheer positional flexibility (he can literally play all over the field except for catcher)...showed some pop and speed in the minors, too. More potential upside there than with, say, Lavarnway or Holt.

    I agree we'll see some wheeling and dealing over the next few days...

    Hassan should be designated. He will clear waivers and be resigned.

     

    As others have mentioned BenC will be doing a cople of 2 for one deals starting Monday. He does seem to like Hassan. At this stage I would not give away, without compensation, any pitching.

    Holt should stay unless Ben C or JF have someone else in mind.

    I think we eventually trade Dempster or Peavy and Gomes or Carp, so I do not think we must have roster issues to worry about as long as one of these guys are traded for a non-40 man roster player.

    I'd like to see us trade Dempster and Gomes for a player that can play CF very well on defense and hits lefties well. The 2 for 1 aspect makes room for Napoli, and the money freed up gives us flexibility to upgrade elsewhere now or in July.
