    Over the past two years,

    • Player A .743 OPS
    • Player B .736 OPS

    So, instead of giving up a good young SP, and one of the top prospects in BB, why not just extend Gomes for $107.5M/5?

    Ha!

    Heres the thing that some people seem to be overlooking, we don’t have a lot of options. We need an outfielder with a middle of the line up bat. Those don’t grow on trees. With more and more teams holding onto their star players, its difficult to get someone with that skill set. And the reality is that we really need 2 middle of the order bats as next season will likely be ortiz’s last and considering how far down his batting avg has dropped this year, who knows what could have next year. I’m sure we would all love to get stanton, but the problem is that we need players now. We can’t afford to wait 1.5-2 yrs until stanton is available. So really what are our options outside of kemp?

    Why would you even want a player that had a .743 OPS over the past two seasons to play LF?

    Forget about being one of the highest-paid players in baseball.

    Forget about being one of the most injury-prone players in BB.

    If someone was a FA, and had a .743, would you sign him to play LF?

    Not to mention that he also might be worse than Gomes defensively at this point.

    What I've read is that Kemp is a horrible teammate.

    We just removed one malignant tumor(Pierzynski).  Why replace one tumor with another one? 

    I'd rather keep what we have and end up in last place than ruin the clubhouse with Kemp.

    Kemp was a helluva guy, then he dated Rihanna and fell apart...No, just kidding. Matt is 29 years old, but he could turn into CC in a Landsdowne second. He has too many problems even with the light LA media, I can't see him surviving in any slump with the Sox. It would be torture, and he would cry racism.

    When was the last time Kemp was actually a "middle of the order bat"????

    2, 3 years ago???? but he's going to magically turn back into one over the next 1.5 years.  We aren't going anywhere this year so why rush to overpay for an overpaid guy who might be in serious decline????

    Then we will still be without a middle of the order bat and in even worse shape.

Other Black players have handled it well, but most I guess don't classify as African-American (excuse me if I've offended again) as they are from other countries--Beltre, Tiant, Pedro, Ortiz. Mo Vaughn was terrific in Boston. Reggie Smith and Tommy Harper went through ridiculous scrutiny by their own owner, but the fans did love them. I know I was a big fan of both.

    Kemp is a $107M Grady Sizemore gamble waiting to happen.  I wouldn't take the risk.  

    Do something absolutely nuts: go aggressive after Tulowitzki.  There's your middle of the order power for $114M left on his deal.  

    Send them either Bogaerts/Middlebrooks and Workman.   Holt can play LF.  The chronic SS problem is solved and power is found.

    No, I said I knew you or someone else would say that I'm racist for making a statement that a black ballplayer might have trouble with the Sox media spotlight in Boston. CC brought it up in LA Media.
    I'm just fine with how I inter-relate with blacks, asians, anyone. You, on the other hand, are racist. A person who makes a statement like you did certainly points in that direction. You made the assumption, not I. You went from A to Z. CC did the same thing in talking about his Boston experience.

    I made a remark that a ballplayer like Kemp, who has been silverspooned in LA, that he may not be a good fit in Boston if he already is having trouble with the media in LA. Boston is a Fish Bowl as some used to say.

    Reggie Smith and Tommy Harper went through ridiculous scrutiny by their own owner, but the fans did love them. I know I was a big fan of both.

    Tommy Harper is 100% the reason I am a Sox fan.

    When I lived in Milwaukee as a child, the Seattle Pilots moved to Milwaukee.  I lived 2 blocks from the old County Stadium. I used to pay a buck as watch Tommy play from the bleachers or ride my bike to the Veteran's Hospital (where I had a paper route) up on a cliff overlooking most of the field. He had a 30-30 season back then, and for a bad team, he was pretty much all there was to root for.

    My family moved to Portland Maine when I was going into the 6th grade, and shortly afterwards, Harper was traded to the Red Sox. It's the only team I switched to. I'm still a Packer and Bucks fan, but I've been a Sox fan since the trade.

    Hearing about how Harper was treated years after the fact upset me, but such is life. Nobody said it was always fair, but I think Tommy handled himself well. I've never had a favorite player like him since he retired.
