    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Free Payroll... : Moon...Upton is hitting .273 in the National League against weaker pitching...I would prefer keeping a post-surgery Crawford for one more year to see if he could begin to earn his pennies....He looked good to me in his brief tour at Fenway playing with that injured elbow to boot...The Red Sox are going to have trouble signing top tier free agents because  of all the controversy that has gone down...To me this looks like an owner cutting his losses while fantasy trades dance in the heads of RSN...The amazing  duo of Ciriaco and Middlebrooks notwithstanding, I think the Red Sox will be rebuilding for far longer than its post-2004 WS fanbase is likely to tolerate...

    1. The NL deosn't have "weaker pitching." They have pitching that cannot be directly compared to the AL due to the lack of a DH.

    2. Ryan Lavarnway is hittling like .110 and everyone had to have him.  I know Lavarnway has "potential", but he is also older than Upton.

    I love this notion that the NL is weak.
    They've won the last two World Series and the last three All-Star games.
    The nonsense that NL players can't hit Al pitching is equally laughable.
    Miguel Carbrera, Prince Fielder, Albert Pulols, Jose Bautista, Josh Hamilton,
    Vlad Guerrero, and Adrian Gonzalez, among others, all prove that theory to be a total joke.
    Bautista was a journeyman in the NL, and Theo passed on claiming him from Pittsburgh! Fact.

    So Theo passed on him? What GM didn't?

    Toronto acquired him for a catcher named Robinson Diaz, and most people thought Toronto gave up too much to get him.

    At least give Epstein cerdit for his own Batuista story, which would be David Ortiz...

    Atlanta has a club option for $12M in 2013. They will keep him.
