    He definitely has potential, but after the collapse of the Red Sox this season, it probably is possible that anyone can be traded if the right deal comes along.  You may see a few Red Sox players traded that you wouldn't expect and some of the better minor league players could be involved in these trades.

    Lavarnway is the #1 prospects not to be on the trade bait. 

    Do not forget this kid also have an experience playing in the OF.  So therefore, he can move to LF if Crawford continues to struggle at the plate. 

    For now, he will share his catching duty with Salty as well it is possible to play LF occasionally.

    Agreed...Lavarnway is part of the solution. Young, talented, and intelligent. Most important - cost-controlled.

    In addition, I'd hold on to Will Middlebrooks.  That kid will also be a thumper in the lineup for years to come. 

    I'd let Ortiz walk (love the guy) and then rotate DH between Gonzalez, Youk-(also spelling Gonzo at 1B), Lavarnway, and Middlebrooks (with Youk spelling middlebrooks at 3b). 

    re-sign paps.
    Re-sign scoot.
    let Linares platoon with Reddick/Kalish

    Can we please get off the Juan Carlos Linares train? Why does anyone think he can be a major league player at this point in his career? He's not even a good minor leaguer.

    There will never be another Carlton Fisk. They don't make ballplayers like that anymore.

    Other people there will never be another one like include:

    Moe Howard...one of a kind, he will be imitated but never matched.

    Bobby Orr...you can live a million years and never see perfection, but I did, for a few short years.

    Steve McQueen...it is just not possible for anyone to be that cool.

    Sandy Koufax...the ultimate pitcher, some came close...but there has been no equal.

    James Brown....soul brother #1, the godfather of soul. Nobody comes close.

    The Beatles....rock bands will come and go, but the Beatles are the standard by which success in music is measured. No musical act , not Madonna, Michael Jackson or even the Stones can match the influence they had on music, pop culture and just about everything that came after them.

    Jimi Hendrix...I have yet to see a musician as dedicated. In basically three years , he reinvented rock music, recorded an unbelievable catalogue of music and influenced every rock guitar player since.

    Adolf Hitler....and this is a good thing.

    So, please do not hold your breath waiting for the "next Carlton Fisk"...you will never see him.

    The next Carlton Fisk?  Right.  Lavarnway is going to be a Hall of Famer who plays over 20 years.  Sure he is.  Stop making stupid comparisons.  He hasn't proven anything yet at the major league level.  Let him do something before you compare him to a Hall of Famer and one of the best catchers in history.

    Lavarnway is a smart kid who has all the tools to become the next Fisk.  Did anyone else watch Napoli last night, or for that matter all year?  His arm and bat meant more than anything a team could ask for.  Game calling skills?  Napoli before this season never met any of the Ranger pitchers and guess what?  He could be on the brink of helping his team win the WS.

    Hopefully Ben didn't learn Theo's bad traits.

    100 % agreement, keep this kid. He has the developing chops to provide us with some stability at the catcher spot and play dh/1b in the future. I like his attitude in the limited time he played this year.

    The guy has caught all of two games in his entire MLB career.  Can we stop comapring him to Hall of Famers already.  I hjave to wonder how closely you were watching Lavarnway and how well you remember a young Carlton Fisk if you cannot remember or did not recognize the team Lavarnway looked impressive against.  (I will assume you meant Baltimore, in the games he actually started.)

    Lavarnway caught a whopping two innings vs. Tampa this year - one Bowden, one Morales.  Are you saying those two innings impressed you?

    Because of an inadequate sample size why are we debating Lavarnway? Why the pizzing debate? Let it go until next year.

    If you think it's easy hitting 8000+ posts , it is vey hard to do this and look smart all the time.

    I think I am the only one to post this many times and still have a spotless record of never being wrong.

    So, please, give my friend BILL a break! He is one of my favorite posters cause he brightens the board by being a positive influence and a pretty funny guy....once you get it, that he is smarter than you think he is. His online persona is like a disguise and he has a unique style and the board would be a dull place without him.
