    Highway Robbery

    Edwin Escobar AND Heath Hembree for Peavy?


     


    I would have taken either one alone and been happy with it...

    I don't understand how they got both those guys.  Any team would have happily taken just Escobar.  This is just speculation, but it seems highly plausible that another team was in play.

    Baseball America had Escobar second in its rankings and Hembree 7th

    I think the SOX should just give the Giants Doubront as a thank you gift. Of course, they'll probably refuse it.

    It's bonkers. Seriously, if this is the market can we get Dylan bundy for Lester?

    It was a nice haul for Peavy even though Escobar has really struggled this season after the Giants thinking he may push one of their starters out of the rotation.

    Coupled with Lester's statement that he'd be open to re-signing in the offseason even if he's traded, is there any way you don't make him available now?

    QUOTE:



    I think the Sox and Jon both want to re-sign.  Grabbing a "Peavy" kind of haul or better for Jon now from a contender would be a great move "IF" the Sox actually offer Jon his worth and bring him back.  If not we are still just collecting prospects who may or may not work out which doesn't improve our club anytime soon.  We still need to make a big move using some of these prospects if we want this team to rebound quickly.

    Their computers are down, and they are outside doing some manual labor.  A nice long afternoon of moving the goal posts.

    softy would be claiming Ben got lucky at SF's GM's incompetence.

    (Like he blamed the SD GM for not demanding Ellsbury and Lowrie for AGon)

    Wish Peavy do well, but in another uniform... In Boston he was the incarnation of bad luck... The angst in his face unforgettable...the good deal by his departure looks like a fine omen of things to come...lol... If you watch Capuano hurling for the mighty Yanks you would say, as Cole Porter did, that Anything Goes...

    yes I've been having confusing feelings watching the Yankees game today,  I found myself rooting for Capuano pitching a good game then I realized I was rooting for a Yankee.  I feel dirty all of a sudden.

    I admit that I know nothing about how good the SF Giants farm system is. Being ranked #2 and 7 has to be taken in context; if the farm system is ranked lower third, especially if its ranked near the bottom in pitching (and I don't know that it is or isn't) that would likely mean that those pitchers stink. Its all a matter of context.

    Well, most of us already knew that Peavy stunk, so what do the SOX have to lose?

    He was certainly not in the plans for next year. Hopefully what we got was the most we could have received for him. Now its time to dump the rest of the losers on this team: Gomes, Badenhop, Mujica, Carp...etc etc.
