    [BREAKING] Sox sign Ryan Roberts to a major league deal

    https://twitter.com/BHSCouncil/status/453175911307685888

    gotta be WMB's RHB replacement

    Sox need to open up a spot in 40 men roster and I'm guessing Butler will be placed on the waiver and Holt optioned back to AAA. 

     

    Why Sox signed Roberts.

    They are probably going to go with a Herrera/Roberts platoon or a Holt/Roberts Platoon until WMB gets back.  I would assume the Sox would have to release one of Herrera/Roberts/Holt when WMB comes back though...if Roberts shines that could be Herrera.

    Little bit concerned that we have to play 7 games against tough opponents without WMB and possibly Papi as well.  I heard that Papi was dealing with calf injury as well.  He played yesterday so hope nothing really serious.

    33 year old mediocre ham and egger. Rays reject. Stop this dumpster diving. Bring up Cecchini.

    PLEASE STOP!  

    Why do we continue to do this? Cecchini played half of last season in A ball. Yes he is off to a hot start in AAA but in only 12.....12!!! at bats.

    Cecchini is more likley a mid season call up, the bat is close and may be there but he has a lot more work defensively to do.

    Roberts is a good defender and a platoon of him and Holt will give us a decent replacement at the position (more than WMB would when he struggles)

    We are going to lose games if we use these kind of castoffs. We always brag about our farm system, but are always reluctant to challenge them.

    Just because the farm is strong and Cecchini is a strong prospect doesn't mean he is a better option now.  We always look to jump the gun on prospects.  Cecchini is just getting his feet wet in AAA PUMP the brakes.  Roberts hits LHP, and Holt has success against RHP, Roberts also probably plays better D than WMB right now....we aren't losing much if anything by that platoon.  

    Cecchini may very well be an option mid season but there is no way the Sox are going to go in that direction right now.

    Most prospects aren't going to be superstars right away.  Xander Bogaerts may be the exception to this rule, most MLB regulars and above average players take a more JBJ type route to the majors.  Making this kind of depth move because we think someone like Cecchini isn't an option yet is in no way an indictment on his prospect status and the Sox system status.

    A warm body to help out at third until Middlebrooks is back...which will hopefully be soon.

    No big deal.

    I would not mind seeing Cecchini called up, but also understand wanting to give him some time...by all accounts he could stand to make some improvements defensively. Either way, I don't think it will be long.

    I am thinking that the new signing of a 3B means that the Sox believe it may be some time before WMB is going to be back. Calf injuries can take quite a while to heal. The organization rarely makes roster moves if its just a couple of weeks of missed time for a player.
