BOSTON -- "It's not all wishful thinking. The Red Sox have talked about it in-house, too, which probably is no different than 28 other major league teams.
But after three major moves in the last 23 days -- the trade for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, the trade for outfielder Allen Craig and pitcher Joe Kelly, and the signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo -- the Sox may be better positioned than most to match up with the Miami Marlins should they elect to trade 24-year-old slugger Giancarlo Stanton this winter.
Or, should Boston choose, put together a package for White Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Or -- don't laugh -- perhaps both."
I like the thought but would still rather have Jon back with the addition of either Stanton or Tulo along with Beltre. Save the cash for pitching alone.
Id run away from Tulo...injured AGAIN (had hip surgery 10 days ago), about to turn 30 in Oct (injuries only get worse and take longer to heal, and he already has a list of them), owed 20M per for the next 5 years, has played just 264 games over the last 3 years (thats an average of under 90 games per year), and has played over 140 only 3 times since his 1st year in 2006. Now, dont get me wrong. When hes on the field hes the best SS in the game. 20M over the next 5 years isnt worth that risk IMO. I agree Stanton would be worth taking that risk for 6+ years and 20M per, just not Tulo. Not at this point in his career and all his injuries/surgeries hes already had.
Honestly, I dont see a trade for Sale happening either, unless they give up Owens, Swihart, and one more top prospect. But Chicago already needs pitching. Besides Sale and Quintana, they have nothing. Giving up Sale would HAVE to include at least a couple top pitchers going back.
What's up southpaw, Tulo is becoming more known as just another fragile superstar with a huge salary so you may be right. I just hope the Sox don't waste their prospects on pitchers instead of bats. With pitchers like Max, Jon and Shields out their this is where we should be spending our cash. Save those prospects and/or veterans for better bats.
