    Blow em up Ben, PLEASE

    This team has bad juju now. Ben needs to get radical.

    1. Sign Pujols.
    2. Trade AGon to Diamondbacks for Upton. AGon's "GOd's will" act just ain't gonna fly in Calvinist New England. He is a southwest guy.
    3. Trade Crawford for Ethier. Dodgers might bite, getting Carl for six years as opposed to losing Ethier after next season.
    4. Trade Buchholtz and Lowrie to Mets for David Wright and pitching prospect.
    5. Trade Lester, Raunoldo, Reddick and Youk for King Felix and a reliever.
    6. Trade Beckett to Rangers in three way with Indians to get Masterson.
    7. Sign CJ Wilson and Mark Buehrle.
    8. Do not sign Papi. Give DH job to Lavernway for first couple of months and troll for a Berkman like vet.
    9. For the LOVE OF YAZ do not under any circumstances bring Wake or Tek back.

    Outfield of Upton, Ellsbury and Ethier
    Infield of Wright, Scutoro/Iglesias, Pedroia and Pujols
    Rotation of King Felix. CJ Wilson, Masterson. Aceves and Buhrle

    Theo's failure was loving stats over character. Letting Victor and Beltre go was a huge character subtraction. As was trading Masterson. We need more character guys and less whiners and selfish guys. Lester's betrayal was the worse since we knew Lackey and Beckett were selfish schmucks. But the Lester thing stings. Time for a move. And six more years of Carl just ain't gonna fly, nor is AGon's "God's will" act.
    Gotta BLOW EM UP Ben. For the sake of the Nation, DO IT.

    Re: Blow em up Ben, PLEASE

    Is the OP serious?  Blow up the team that was leading the AL and headed for 100 wins with one month to go?  You have completely over-reacted to the September collapse and, worse, called for dramatic trades and other changes that would ruin this team for a long, long time even if they were doable.

    Best offense in MLB this year--most runs scored, highest OPS, etc--and you want to blow it up?

    The only hope of rebuilding the pitching staff is to hang onto the three starters--Beckett, Lester, and Buchholz--who have pitched very well for the Sox in the past, including this year.  Thanks to the beer in the barracks scandal, these guys will be out to prove something next year, so the dumbest thing the Sox can do is get rid of them. 

    No need to dump the pitching coach because the Athletics already hired him.

    You eat nothing for these high quality players--if a team wants these guys they pay the premium price in trade---we need more all around good players.
    Ben may only be able to move CC and Beckett--that's fine if we get back a third baseman or two top of the line pitchers that are comparable to Beckett.
    This team is going to be facing stronger competition next season from the Yankees, Rays and Jays just in our division.

    Would you trade CC to the Astros for Carlos Lee, a SS and Wandy Rodriquez. He will be playing in his hometown of Houston.

    Beckett could help a lot of teams--to the Cubs for pitchers Garza and Marmol.

    pumpsie---a little more than most sox fans can handle in any one post. Some very good ideas--perhaps if Ben Ch has someone monitoring these sites you might get a thank you for a couple of ideas.
              
    We need to keep in mind the deal that Theo pulled off with Nomar and the deal sending Manny to La La Land. These were guttsy moves. It's going to take a couple of similar hair tearing  "wow" moves before we start the 2012 season.

    Beckett yes trade him to Texas for either Michael Young or one of their starting pitchers.
    Lester for Masterson 
    Buch not so sure
    CC for Ethier or Upton
    AGon to Dodgers for Kemp
    Sign Pujols
    Sign CC Sab

    How much money would we have to eat on the AGON, Crawford, and Beckett contracts?  I understand that these types of posts are supposition, but no way any of this happens.  Why trade Lester - he's one of few potential bright spots in the rotation.  I think we've seen the best of Beckett, Dice-K is as good as gone, Lackey's out for at least the upcoming season, and I'm not convinced Masterson would thrive in the AL East.

    No worries. We have re-signed Scutaro and have one of the best young catchers in the game. CC is getting treatment this winter for his Wallphobia and Youk will have hip, shoulder, knee, and ankle replacement, making him the first bionic third-baseman.
    Drew has agreed to drop two zeros off his salary and is in contract negotiations with Doan's Pills for endorsemnent.

    No need to blow the club up just for bad juju.  The juju has just been totally shifted as I am retiring my trusty fitted Sox cap that I have been wearing since '03.  Just ordered fitted wool 1947 cap with that awesome '47 B emblem.  Consider the bad juju exorcized.
