    Great! Phils traded Hunter Pence to SF for a minor leaguer named Tommy Joseph, a 1B-C hitting .260 in AAA.
    You mean Fearless Ben couldn't have done better???????????

    So meaning you wanted Cody Ross out of the organization?  What make you think that Hunter is going to be a better player than Ross?

    Pence is a plus RF with a cannon arm, Ross is a butcher.
    Pence is also under team control next year, Ross is a free agent.
    Pence is two years younger than Ross.
    He has a 30 point higher career batting average, 105 OPS advantage.
    Pence is a Dewey Evans type player, and a real dirt dog.
    Other than that, Ross is better. Duh!

    Pence will also likely cost 10+ million next year.  Red Sox are not trying to add salary which is probably why they stayed away.  He would've been a nice fit for the Sox though if they felt they had the financial flexibility.

    I'm looking at Dice K's 10 million off the books, as a starter.
    If they can unload part of Beckett's in the off season, there's more money.
    Maybe Papi makes good on his threat to go elsewhere. Another 12 million.
    To not grab a guy like Pence,  in his prime, when other than Middlebrooks, there is no right handed power in the lineup, is a huge mistake.
    Please spare me all the "Kalish is the future RF" baloney. He's nothing special, and a 4th OF at best.
    Crawful, Ellsbury and Kalish. Three lefty hitters, who Ryan Braun will hit more HRs and RBIs, than any two of the three, in a typical season.

    Re: Its The 12 O'clock Hr And All Is Quite On The Eastern Front...

    It always slightly amazes me when guys like to quote something and screw it up.  The line is All Quiet On the Western Front from the novel by Erich Maria Remarque.  Note it's east, not west, and quiet, not quite.  Tons of irony in the title because the Western Front in WW I was a bloodbath with very few if any quiet, bloodless days.  

    Since Miami is probably the only MLB city east of Boston, the trade front is indeed the western front.  And the quiet, we all know, can be very misleading.  I see no big trades coming, but you never can tell.
