    I doubt Papi walks if hes offered that Moon...I also think they will either give him 2yrs or an option, either vesting or team/player..

    You are probably right, but Papi seemed pretty upset about last year's nearly $15M offer. I think if he believes he can get more elsewhere, he may walk.

    Moon, 

    It's highly unlikely anyone is going to give Ortiz anymore than 15mil the Red Sox may offer again, so I doubt he goes anywhere unless he feels so insulted by another low, offer if one can call these staggering amounts of cash low, he stay in Boston. Papi still shows he can play first base but at his age no one will pay him big bucks to play 1B so rule out the NL and who in the AL is going to pay Papi big bucks besides the RS for a one dimensional player. 

    He'll be here this year !!

    Hetch

    I think Papi will be back too.

    I want Papi back.

    However, we only have to offer him about $12.5M/1, and he refuses to get the sandwich comp pick. I am not sure if someone would offer more, but perhaps they might, of they may offer him a 2 year deal that he may prfer.

    I am guessing that Baltimore would be mighty interested in Papi as a DH.  He would fit that lineup like a glove.

    Baltimore is a good bet.

    I could see TB making an offer, especially if they trade Shields. Papi could play 1B at NL parks and few in the AL too.

    I'm sure there are more teams that might consider $13M/1.

    it's a shame the SOX aren't getting the 1st draft pick, because for the last couple of months they have been the worst team in baseball. they earned it.

    i hate seeing them lose, but the 6th pick would be even better than 7th. But I would be fine with 7th if we could cause the NYY to be the WC team

    there is no difference between 7th and 8th or 6th or 5th or 22nd in baseball draft.  unless you have a #1 like Bryce or Strasburg its a freaking crapshoot.  look where trout was drafted last year.

    sigh....draft....sigh.....

    I may be wrong here but I think this is the case.  We have at least the 7th pick locked.  We lose the tie breaker with Miami (or win it,depending on how ou look at it)  if they win and or we lose.  Or if we both lose we get the sixth pick.  I believe we lose the tie breaker with Cleveland as well, so if we lose and they win.......we have the 5th pick.   Nice consolation prize for stinking.

     

    If we win tonight we have a chance to play spoiler.  It's a win win if you ask me.

    True the draft is less predictable in baseball than any other sport....but if you look at the top ten draft picks from the last ten years....yeah it's a pretty impressive list.  Also I think inbaseball players had much more barganing power before the new collective bargaining agreement.  Players with high demands old old out longer.  With the new system I think you will see more of the top talent going first, making high draft picks more valuable.

    Losses:

    1) Houston 107

    2) Cubs       101

    3) Colorado  98

    4) Minnesota 96

    5) Cleveland  94

    6/7) Boston/Miami 93

    When you say we "win the tiebreaker", do you mean we "win" by getting the worse pick of #6 or #7?

    Do we get #6 or 7 of the second round?
