    Buchholtz for Peavy?

    Would you leave Buchholtz in Chicago tonight and bring Peavy home after the game today?

    Peavy costs a little more, is older, has had injuries, Chicago might want to save some money as they look to be a non contender this year and building for later years?

    Buchholts is 'home grown' by the Sox, is younger, has a longer contract, was injured last season, has struggled this season, the Red Sox always plan to win each year.

    Peavy costs a little more? $17m this year and $22 m next year at a team option or he is a free agent. So you want to trade contract friendly Buch for injury prone Peavy for that yep of dough/years? Please, get a clue.

    Nevah happen.

    Now, if Peavey was with that other Chicago team, maybe.

    But Peavey IS more expensive.

    No, although, Buchholz' season has been quite alarming.  I'll roll the dice on him turning it around over gambling on the often injured Peavy.

    Re: Buchholtz for Peavy?

    It depends on how much they want to move Peavy--maybe they eat some of his salary this year OR maybe they are willing to take Youk and Buch for Peavey and ??Morel; that would be close to an even swap moneywise.

    OR how much would they like to move Rios? could we do Peavy and Rios for Buch, Youk, CC and CASH.

    This might be the year Peavy goes injury free...He would be quite an addition if he replaces Buch in the rotation and he pitches consistently the way he did Sat.

    A healthy CC might be worth more to the WS next season and beyond than paying $30 M this season for two players(Peavy and Rios) that will not change the outcome for the WS this season. I think Boston might just be a great landing spot for Rios.

    So the alternative other than "NO" is to have Buch sit in the #3 slot---if the A's beat him up Monday and he gives up 5 or 6 runs in 5 inn's. that's okay??

    I say Cook has more experience--he has pitched well for the PawSox--can't hurt sliding him into #3.

    I would hope BenC is on the phone with a team that has an arm we could use or that management is considering, if things don't go well Mon. night, to have a plan.

    Maybe if we had a chance to win it all THIS YEAR which we don't, so I'll pass.

    Plus, given the mess that is the Crawford contract, we can not afford to add salary.

    Re: Buchholtz for Peavy?

    Peavy costs a little more

    Buchholz costs 3.5M.  Assuming you don't want to pay Peavy $22M, then his 2012 salary, plus his buyout, will cost us $21M.

    So you think $17,500,000 is just "a little more"?

    Ever hear the term 'buy low, sell high'?  The smart people that do that are generally looking in your direction when they are thinking that.

    Peavy , at his best , is far better than Buchholz , but the cost is prohibitive. Sox are not in a position to pay that kind of money.

    Dear Boston Red Sox Fans,

    Your team will not be in any position to take on incremental payroll for the next 6 seasons.

    Should you need to reach me, you could contact my satellite phone and the Captain of my yacht will connect you to me.

    In the meantime, all complaints should be forward to Theo Epstein @ 1060 West Addison Chicago, IL 60613. 

    Best of Luck.

    Sincerely,

    Carl Crawford

    Peavy is pitching the way most of us knew he would but my guess is he will be on the DL before the season ends.  Clay just needs to get his confidence back and hit his spots.  He has never been a guy to SO a lot of batters, despite what some predicted when he was in the minors.

    Do I think Carl Crawford is happy right now?  You bet your butt I do.  $142 Million Dollars for not even having to play?  Wait, that was a rhetorical question, right?  I mean I hope so....

    No, not even close. Buch will get back into form, Peavey is injury prone.

    Hammah, 

    Andrew is the definition of the typical troll who thinks he's a fan. If he ever wrote anything positive most of us would fall out of our chairs in disbelief.

    You can't compare one set back from Clay to Peavys history on the DL.  Lets hope we never will and Clay finds his groove.

    OK but Buck has proven he can't exactly stay healthy either (I don't think he's ever made 30 starts in a season and I know he's never come close to 200 IP)
