    Hey Cherington: No more Mr. Niceguy!!

    Ben traded Lars Anderson for a nobody just to give him his chance to be a major leaguer.  Now, our cubbard is bare at 1b!  Lars may not have been the answer to our void, but he would be at least one option.  Enough with the Mr. Niceguy!  There is no upside in it for the Redsox!

    stupid post. if he traded anderson away AFTER a-gon was gone then you could blame him.

    how can you use hindsight as a reason for criticism?

    Lars Anderson was once a top prospect...

    ...that was about 3 years ago.

    In his 3 MLB trial periods, this "all bat, no glove" potential slugger managed a paltry .167 BA and hit a whopping 0 HRs....in 48 AB.

    Good riddance. The minor leagues are full of guys who could be had for the same money or less and who likely can hit at least their weight.

    Indeed. Lars might not be any better than James Loney at this point. We'd be better off with Napoli, Laroche, or just about anyone else on the free agent market, or just giving Mauro Gomez or Jerry Sands a chance if all else fails. I don't think anyone should be wistfully longing to have Lars Anderson back.

    (Now, if we'd never traded Anthony Rizzo? That might be another story.)

    I was really high on Rizzo. Solid ballplayer and great character. I hope he has a great career.

    Anderson was doing nothing to suggest he would be any help to the team besides a BU.

    Sorry, but your post makes no sense.

    I think we can all agree that we weren't going into 2013 with Lars as our starting 1B.

    So all Lars could've been was an extremely limited backup.  Since Gomez is more talented than Lars, what useful purpose does Lars serve us?
