    Good for Cody

    Cody decided to take a nice offer from the D'Backs for 3 + years rather than to wailt any longer  on the Sox.

    Good riddance. The Red Sox gave him that platform, and that least he could have done was accept a 2 year and base 5 or 6 deal to show loyalty and appreciation for being lifted up from a dumpster. But, no, he's going to prostitute himself to the highest bidder, stepping on the hands that lifted him up.

    Isn't that the American way softlaw? You're the one that loves capitalism so much. This is how it works, or were you asleep that day in econ?

    the sox didn't do him any favors. he was going to get signed regardless.. he got paid because he produced. 90%+ of players sign with the highest bidder. A player wants to get paid their worth, and the highest bidder is valueing you more than anyone else. It is how it is softy.

    This is actually a very good thing for the RS.  The agents and players aren't stupid.  Beltre comes to Boston for a good price, and has an MVP-caliber year, and instead of getting one year for $10M, he's lined up for 7 year or whatever.  Ross is a pedestrian talent.  He comes to Boston for a good price, has an excellent year, and moves on.  I am hoping the same for Drew, an .825 year.  And if he gets a .825, it's not unreasonable to think he'd turn down a qualifying offer in favor of a 3-4 guarantee elsewhere.

    We should be seen as the destination of choice for good players, who had an off year, looking to re-establish their value.  And that is a good thing.

    Good for the Red Sox. 3 years is way too much for Ross.

    In response to Softlaw1's comment:

    he got paid because he produced

    He had a nift .684 OPS away. He was a total function of Fenway, and, at that, he produced at a 2nd rate season long production level of 22HR and 81RBI as a RH hitter in Fenway. I'd say that's worth about 2 years and base 5 for old Cody. At least Cherry got this one right!

    Good riddance 26M old prima donna Cody!

    Now, Cherry, get crackin' on acquiring J. Upton.



    It could time.  In 2012's OPS-

    • Ross .807
    • Kubel .833
    • Upton .785

    It might make sense for AZ to dump their weakest hitting OF.

    I am hoping the same for Drew

    While Fenway will help the 10 million dollar man, you are pipe dreaming if you think this bum is going to have any impact on making the Red Sox a playoff game winning team.

    Please note that Joe has taken one year OPS and not adjusted for 3 year averages or park factor.

    Please note that Joe ranks Ross and Kubel as better options than J. Upton.



    take a joke softy. for someone who loves to twist numbers you sure don't late it lightly when someone does it to you.

    1-I merely pointed out the superior OPS of Ross and Kubel.

    2-And I have pointed out Upton's park advantages to you several times.

    But according to the filters that YOU have set up, 3 years and park adjusted, for the past three years, on the road-

    • Upton  .740
    • Ross  .687
    • Kubel  .774

    So Kubel has clearly been the better hitter once the HFA advantage is stripped away.  Ross stinks, but we already know that.  In addition, Upton hits very few HRs on the road, less than 9 per season over the past 3 years.  That's a fairly weak 1/37 ABs for Upton, 1/30 ABs for Ross, who basically stinks, and 1/25 for Kubel.

    Yes, it is a vapid joke to suggest that Ross and the great white Kubel are better OF'er than J. Upton. Nice job, Joe.



    I'm giving you numbers.  If you want to ignore numbers, then join the great unwashed.

    Seriously, there are a great number of people that would like to live their lives free of the burden of analysis.  You might actually be part of the majority.  Still, I cannot my compunction for relying on numbers for analysis, rather than 'feelings'.

    I think the D'Backs would be more inclined to deal Kubel unless they get an offer for J.Upton that blows them away. I think the Red sox should trade for Kubel. He would be a nice upgrade Over Kalish in left and the platoon with Gomes would still Make sense Considering Kubel Is a LHB.

    I enjoyed his time here.  Hope things go well for him.  Unless we meet him in the WS, of course.  :O)

    Where would we play him Mef if Napoli's deal ends up getting worked out? Dont get me wrong i like goldschmidt(He strikes out a bit too much for me) but a Power bat like his i would def welcome in the Red Sox Lineup. Do you like the idea of trading for Kubel though??

    well im sre they could just drop the contract if they wanted. it was pending a physical which he clearly failed. some would argue we shouldn't even sign him now (without knowing the specifics its hard to say). But i advocated getting PG before we even signed Naps..

    I do like Kubel though, not sure if anyones been after him since AZ has Upton on the block..
