    Glad all of you are major league talent evaluaters! Who says the kids can't play at 20-24? Maybe you should look at TB! They have done well with young players. But hey what do they know?

    I have to be honest I thought the object of dumping those salaries last year was to use our prospects NOW? Did I miss something? Why build a bridge to nowhere? Im tired of hearing they are not ready. I can suffer 3 years with kids while they grow. Now we will hear three years from now when they come up that they need two years in the pro's to develop. INSANE!



    Agreed in full.... but I am a supposed hater  for wanting this.

    Hello ol friend, hope life is treating you well! Would be great to have Harness back here. Im sure even he would say go with the kids and stop screwing around!

    And the only haters are those who will not look at both sides, you are not one of them. Heres to spring training, because regardless of the team the Sox field, i will be rooting and curseing!

    That's not the way I look at it.  The way I look at is the Red Sox organization should be able to do a better job evaluating their talent than me, or you, or anyone here.

    don't forget TB was also reaping the rewards of years and years and years of last place. having the top draft picks for years will often net you better prospects. pair that with being in a small market where you HAVE no choice but to play your kids and theres your answer..

    Dan Duquette of the Orioles and Ben seem to have similar philosophies about maximizing draft picks, keeping your prospects, and avoiding long-term contracts.



    Dan Duquette hired and mentored Ben so this makes sense.

    Reason #1,467 why we should fire LL and make Duke the highest paid exec in MLB.

    They are all individuals. Tampas prospects have nothing to do with our prospects.

    My good friend,

     

      I think there is some comfort in the signees ... a bit of guarantee against the complete un-doing of our prospects.

      The careful consideration here is two-fold ... the short term contracts of the new fellas relieves the overbearing sense of long term dread as the former stars age well past prime (that part I think you know well), and JUST IN CASE the prospects blossom, there isn't as great a loss in taking these fellas out of the line up.

       In the second case, we all take a deep breath of fresh air and enjoy the bright horizon ...

     

       I personally am a tiny bit comforted with the new signees.   They may not be "wowee" signees, but they fit both the short term plan and may just indeed click ... ala the Idiots of the fine 2003 and 2004 seasons ...

      Ive missed you. Spring brings eternal hope as it has for years. I can disagree with you this once, I was all in for the kids. Im not fond of bridges. This brings nothing to the fans except a decent ball club (.500). I would rather watch the kids play and know they are developing. I've heard the rants that they need more seasoning, my honest feeling is either they have it or they don't. If they don't let them move on!

    I hope you and yours have a healthy and happy holiday.

    I have no idea what you are trying to convey in your post. Are you saying that Tampa prospects are different than any other teams? If so, how would you know that? Are you a phychic? I really am curious.

    they can still develop in the minors while saving their service time. if you bring all of our top prospects up not only can you ruin their development due to being overmatched.. but you can automatically write off the next 2-3 years. thats 2-3 years of team control wasted when they could do the same thing in the minors. then by the time we get into contention our future stars will be 1-3 years away from Free agency. this "bridge" will allow them to develop PROPERLY while putting a competitive team on the field and saving team control of our future stars for when we are in contention.

    My point is that the success that Tampa had "playing the kids" is irrelevant.  It has no bearing on how the sox will do if the sox play the kids.  The reason being is that they are different people.
