And the news is not good...
Felix Doubront showed up to camp is not good condition, much like 2011.
I know this might be seen as an over-reaction/knee-jerk reaction by some, but I think the Sox should sign Lohse and trade Doubront before he injures himself, perhaps along with Aceves and Salty for a real LFer or some pitching prospects (you can never have too many).
This is absolutely unacceptable to me by a young pitcher who is trying to establish himself, especially since it seems to be a trend for him. Trading him now would also send a clear message to all the pitchers.
While I think that Rubby De LaRosa, Webster and Morales provide depth for the rotation, Doubront was penciled in at #5 and Lackey is no guarantee. The rotation is thin and could use another bona fide starter. Lohse is the best still out there. The prospects you might receive in a trade make up for the 2nd round pick you lose (though not the slot money). Thoughts?
