    Carp's future in Boston

    Here's an idea... Let Napoli walk this offseason, and make Carp your first basement. Any reasons why not to do this?

    Why not both? Then what is to say either will continue playing as they have especially Carp who has been a big surprise.

     

     

     

    Love the Red Sox and enjoy the ride every year

    Re: Carp's future in Boston

    I like Carp a great deal so far, and see him taking over for Ortiz down the road. But why not try to keep Napoli too, all he's doing is leading club in RBI ?

    What is it with so many people wanting to mess with success ? Trades , letting key parts walk , etc.

    Now if we could somehow acquire Giancarlo Stanton WITHOUT selling the Farm ? Hmm.

    He has a .396 BABIP.  That's really unlikely to be sustained.  His 27/7 K/W is very weak.  He has a career .782, a  switchhitter and can play LF and 1B, and those all have value.  But unless we go cheap next year, I don't see us making him our starting 1B.  I wouldn't completely dismiss it, say if Lee fell into our laps, and we needed to go cheap elsewhere, but I would not expect him to keep this up.

    I suggest we turn Napoli into a family room.

    I also sometimes wonder about even thinking about dumping guys when things are going well for the team and also for the player in question.

    Just let Carp keep playing.  Most games in left field and some at first (like last night when Napoli had a night off).  Ride the wave of his current success.  He may not stay as hot all year, but maybe he does, too.

    Worry about next year after this one is over.  I like this team, the way they play and I like being in first place.

    No doubt....  if Carp keeps hitting this way.  Love his versatility and his defense.

    Sure....  will Lackey & Drew cover it?

     

    The Stanton thing is over-done here also.  Who do you want to sit when we magically acquire Stanton...   Victorino,  Ellsbury,  Nava/Carp?   God knows we need to get his .228avg,  3hrs,  9rbi  into this lineup stat!!!

    Not to be contrary, but just out of curiosity, other than Masterson, which of the above named discards would you like to see back on the Sox, and who would you release from the present team to make room for them?

    It's a very good question:

    Melancon I would like back with his current 1.15 ERA with the Pirates 34 K's in about the same number of innings. I think Melancon toughened up after being in Boston --he resurrected his career with his time in the minors. Probably Mort would be released.

    I always liked Murphy--he was a 1st round draft choice--plays all OF positions--tough call on who would be released. He can play all 3 outfield, 1 B and pitch in relief. I might say if he were here Victorino wouldn't have been signed. If I answered your question --released today--Gomes or Carp.

    Seattle fans have lamented the departures of Adrian Beltre, Shin-Soo Choo, Doug Fister, Asdrubal Cabrera, Rafael Soriano and David Ortiz, and to a lesser extent Brandon Morrow, Michael Pineda, Ichiro Suzuki and Eric O'Flaherty.

    It's disappointing that success has avoided the Mariners because in November 2011 CBS Sports ranked Seattle the No. 1 "homegrown" team:

    I don't know why we would take any of those guys back, in place of what we have, with the possible exception of Masterson (who would look good in the bull pen right now.)

    I actually liked how Melancon finished his season here with a big hold in the Bronx. He showed me something positive with his demeanor on the mound. Masterson, to me, is still a BOTR starter or a bullpen arm. other than those 2, none of them. Bullpen arms are easy to swap out. Besides Bailey, Koji and Taz..maybe Breslow...the other guys are fair game IMO.

    The M's have had a ton of talent go through there. I think its about time to change the people who have made the decisions there the last few years. Some really bad moves.

     

    Imagine if they still had Pineda, Fister and Morrow with Felix and the Japanese guy. Had Adam Jones, Carp and cabrerra..they would be fighting for the lead in the ALW IMO. Throw in a couple solid FA signings and the M's would be right there.

    IMO Stanton would take playing time away from Gomes vs. L/h and probably ShaneVic vs. r/h.

     

    His presence would allow trading either Ellsbury OR Victorino, and would be a huge pickup for now and the future. That said, he'd cost us AT LEAST something like a package of : Cecchini or Almanzar; Vazquez or Swihart or Lavarnway; Brentz or Hazelbaker or Kalish; and one of Webster, Britton, or Ranaudo. Feel free to post feedback iif you think I'm being unrealistic .

    I could live with that deal, teeth clenched and squinting, if he helped us win 2 W.S. over 4 years.

    Or maybe include Doubront but take Nolasco off their hands.

    So a 3b prospect, a catcher, an outfielder prospect, an SP prospect plus salary relief and a cheap ML starter.
