    The ground rules here are, if you want to whine, things like Ross and Napoli playing different positions, makes no difference.

    we had no use for him. we can get more production from a platoon of gomes and kalish/nava without locking up a roster spot for 3 years

    So glad that Ben said he was still in play for Red Sox. Ben is a bigger liar than Larry Luchinno. Well, we should be set with Johnny Gomes. What a joke of a team and management as well. Yeah we are in on Hanrahan, believe that one until this idiot of a GM actually trades for him. This year its all profit for John Henry, all profit. I wonder if they are going to sell this team in the near future.

    MEF Nava cannot hit, he starts off good then drops like a stone. That is why he is a career minor leaguer. Kalish is constantly hurt and there is no guarantee there either. Gomes hit in a weaker league and is a below average fielder. Its going to be a long year with this team. They paid top dollar for good character guys instead of getting talent. Emotion carries you so far, talent has to carry you the rest of the way. This team is way short on talent.

    "Gomes hit in a weaker league ..."

    Umm, what? He played in Oakland last season, plus several years for the Rays...the results have been pretty much the same wherever he goes.

    I'm kind of mystified by the people clammoring for Ross and complaining about Gomes. They're actually very similar players.

    Better Gomes at 10M than Ross at 26M, which is laughable!




    no...it is market rate, just like the Sox pickups.  Just because you think that is way over what he is worth doesm't make it true.

    The current ownership is looking as if  they don't care becauset hey are makiing beacuop bucks. I would not be surprised at all if they sell the team in the next 2 years. You are IMO correct when you say they are liars. How can they continue to terrorize the loyal fan base?

    I really liked Cody. I'll be sorry to see him go. I wonder what it takes to play the outfield here. I bet it's harder than most people think. I think that's why Drew was injured so much. He was all over right field diving all over the place. Sweeney's injuries also made you think as well Ellsbury diving and banging himself all over the field. Is everyone missing something? Were there really players in the past that could throw themselves all over, make every play and just get up and dust themselves off every time?

    You do know that we will hit the payroll tax ceiling this year, right?  It's pathetic that you Yankee trolls come in here, and don't have the foggiest idea what our payroll is.  Have some pride in your trolling.

    One of the interesting dynamics of bringing in mediocre ball players?  Fans still fall in love with them.

     

    Letting Ross go is a good decision.  If we can't replace his production with what we have - we are in serious trouble.

    I don't know which games you were watching but if you can come up with some video showing JD Drew laying out for a fly ball, I'd be shocked!

    I'm sure the only kind of diving he did was of the muff variety.

    Some of the posters have no idea of how replaceable these players are.  LFers without a glove, are probably the most replacea ble layers in BB, even more than 1Bs.

    Re: cody ross gone....

    When do you stop becoming a team that changes every year with seemingly temporary players, and start building a team you can root for, with players you love and can't wait to see every season?

    The business of baseball is going to ruin baseball except for those with a short attention span. I don't know what the answer is. Do we get only top-knotch players that can be around for awhile? Do you become the Yankees where we just add and add more players without losing any because we keep them around until they're dead? Of course that would mean paying all those players until they're dead, but at least they have a team they can recognize. I mean what's the answer?
