    Adam LaRoche

    Jen Royle of SB Nation Boston reports that the Red Sox are "going after" free agent Adam LaRoche.

    That would indicate that club officials are considering walking away from the three-year contract that they agreed to earlier this winter with Mike Napoli. LaRoche, 33, hit .271/.343/.510 with 33 home runs and 100 RBI in 2012 for the Nationals while earning Gold Glove honors for his defense at first base. The Nats want him back but aren't willing to go beyond two guaranteed years.

    If the Sox sign him, that would mean admitting a mistake by trading him for Kotchman after one month. That would be like JoeB or Carnie admitting a mistake......never happen!

    It wasn't even a month...I think we had LaRoche for about a week.

    That situation was definitely bungled.

    Hmmm...while interested in LaRoche, and definitely feeling it was a mistake that they traded him for Kotchman, even at the time, I am not sure what benefit there is in reliving mistakes and enjoying them for what ever reason ... even if it means we can pick on someone else about it.

     

    The only thing that matters in the end is what the team does.  And whether we are sticking with them through the good or the bad.

     

    This from someone who started his posting career, for the lack of a better term at this moment, as a blazing lunatic that struck out at anything Jangee, Johnny Damon, or negative Red Sox fans ... who I assumed at the time were marauding and masquarading NYY fans.

     

    If we walk away from Napoli, it may well be the best thing, for him and the team.  There are vultures just waiting for the first sign of weakness, ready to pick apart every possible evidence of
    mistake"  instead of looking for every good reason to elevate.  Vultures or eagles?  Both are carion eaters, but at least eagles appear to be more regal, more distinguished.

     it would be nice if folks would direct ther outrage at perople who try to suppress opinions and insist on towing the company line regardless of facts...this is a sports forum and different thoughts/ideas should be accepted or at least considered....rallying around the team like a mother hen that's more disgusting than any vulture you speak of...

    Nice acquisition by the RS to get him from the Pirates.

    Towing the company line?? Thats pretty funny unless you work for the Sox which I am certain you do not.... what would be nice is to have some of these constant doom and gloom posters (especially ones that have to bring up the past), say something positive.  The problem though is that these same posters will find fault in almost every move the Sox make....

    The RED SOX  also admtted another mistake when they traded Babe Ruth. And he didn't come back. Shall we start admitting mistakes by every team that let a player slip away or traded .You could say that about every team that ever played. Did Twins  make a mistake when they let Ortiz go.? Maybe Seattle with V-Tec.....We could go on forever on this.........
