In response to sportsbozo1's comment:
Webster,Ranaudo and Matt Barnes are all future pitchers in the Boston rotation, and you might say the second tier would include RDLR, Britton and Workman! The Sox have pitching and if Doubrant could be spun for say Brian McCann, then you you might see a Webster sooner rather than later.
As much as RS could use a C, don't think I would be willing to give up Doubront to get it. Never in favor of trading a starting pitcher. Last time we did that it cost us B.Arroyo, when we thought we had too much starting pitching, and Willy Mo Pena has done what in this league? 25 yr old LH w/ good stuff, hopefully needs to mature a little bit and be able to pound the strike zone w/ that stuff on a consistent basis. Pretty sure Doubie has no options left which is a shame because would love to swap him w/ Webster in the rotation at this point and let him work out his control issues @ AAA. Webster has proven he's just about ready.
As for McCann would not go there was hurt at end of last yr as well as beginning of this yr, must prove he's healthy and can catch everyday before looking to acquire, his replacement Gattis has done a nice job, maybe get him cheap?
McCann is a free agent at the end of the year, so I wouldnt pay through the nose, but he would be an awesome get. I would like to see Lava or Ross get a shot at #1 C first though.
Braves dont really need pitching though. Cechhini and Brentz makes more sense to me.
If you would give Cecchihi and Brentz for McCann, whos returning from shoulder surgery for less tha a year, I question your armchair GM skills.
But if you like him that much, make me a trade offer in the fantasy league. I have him on the trading block...
