    Hey since we are getting crazy--trade Ortiz to the Orioles for Adam Jones or Markakis.

    The Sox then do a blockbuster with the Royals to include Butler as the DH and occasional 1 b.

    The O's might then sign Hamilton.

    Sox Royals Trade: others have made some pretty good suggestions on other threads.

    Butler, Gordon, Myers, Collins

    Lester, Aceves, Brentz, Ells and Morales

    That's not true - he likes to blow things up!

    Blow it up! Everyone goes! No one is safe!  Change for changes sake! 

    TRANSFORMATION: by throwing everything in the air and see where it lands. 

    Ok, so it doesn't seem that much different than a temper tantrum from a petulant six year old, but it really IS a management philosophy, it really is.

    Isn't it?

    There may be a trade coming up. He was interested some of the marlin's players via trade but the package was too big too handle. If Napoli is signed, i think his next move will be a FA starter . Who ? but as long as we get more security in the starting rotation, that means the sox can keep Morales/Acevez in the pen. If the unfortunate happens injury to a starter then they can on the rotation. Salty Acevez Linares Jacoby can get some attention and the lester rumour is still up in the air.

    I would like BC to open up the can of worms to see what Arizona will want for J. Upton.

    bill, can you tell us what your ideal team is? must use players who are still in the league or minors.

    just give us the lineup and starting rotation you would like to see on the sox in 2013. you don't even have to say how you aquired these players or what you gave up to get them. just a lineup and starting rotation.

    its simple, ill do it now

    C: ross/salty

    1st: Paul goldschmidt

    2nd: Pedey

    SS: iggy/ciriaco

    3rd: will MB

    Too soon to say what the lineup will be, geo. Too much still up in the air. Winter meeting next week may start to sure up some of it. Problem is, it's a very weak class this year, which is usually when players get overpaid, in money/years.

    Is Lester/Kalish/Bradley/Salt for Hosmer/Myers realistic?

     

    Would love to see them pull something like that off.

     

    Might take Lavarnway instead of Salty though.

    How many times is the trade talked about the most the one that never is made.

    Same with the signing--Napoli will probably sign with the Yankees and Martin will be signed by the Mariners.

    The Sox may get Stanton and empty the farm then go on a signing binge for every pitcher available:

    three of Sanchez, Jackson, Marcum, Grienke, McCarthy and possiblty trade Salty for Gavin Floyd.

    Madmc, why do you think the Sox are going to sign THREE expensive starting pitchers, when as of right now, there is ONE available spot in the rotation?  Are they going to trade two of their current starters or are they going with a 7 man rotation?  Zero chance on Greinke, too.

    Re: Can you feel it ?????? Ben is starting to heat up........

    Jasko---I have a feeling Alan Baird--formally with KC may be involved with Grieenke and the possible Lester deal.

    I think Lackey may also be moved to rid the team of the 2011 debacle.

    Grienke  is a long shot but wouldn't it be great to know we actually have an ace?

    Then to sign  Marcum and Jackson even for two year deals to let our young guys learn how to pitch in  the minors together( Rubby, Webster, Barnes and Workman).

    The other option would be to go hard after Soriano and move Bailey along with Doubie, Lackey and Lester For a SS, and a 1 b and added prospects.

    Keep in mind guys like Grienke, Marcum and Jackson will come if there is a strong closer and set-up guy.

    none of us are GMs... doesn't stop us from saying who our targets are. so why can't you do the same?? its just as easy as calling for the GM to rid the team of certain players (which you do so often) instead you call for the GM to add players.

    so which players do you want on the team? its simple bill, just give us your ideal 2013 lineup. i promise i won't laugh
