    My Outfield in 2013

    LF- Cody Ross

    CF- Jacoby (if not traded)

    RF- Scott Hairston

     

    I think this would work, definately as a bridge to upcoming years with brentz and bradley. Thoughts?

    Re: My Outfield in 2013

    mattb---if the Sox plan to rebuild over the next couple of years I'd go with an outfield of:

    Linares, JBJ and Brentz.

     

    If the Sox are going all in I trade for Chris Young and sign either Hamilton or Swisher and add Brentz to that outfield. Trade Ells.

    Do not sign Ross unless he is your DH and occasional 1 B.

    yeah i like the ross fit too but wonder long term if it would make sense. agree 100% on linares. i tend to shy away from him since they dont seem to want to give him a real chance. i would, and i think next year is maybe the best time to see what we really have

    That's the $64,000 question:  Why didn't they bring up Linares for a look-see?  I don't get it; he isn't getting any younger.

    What an exciting OF in 2013 right after the one of the worst season in Sox history...

    whatever the SOX decide to do for an outfield, please do not include SWISHER in the plans.

    [/QUOTE]

    The Sox commenced the draining of-the-swamp by jettisoning Youkilis, AGon, Beckett, Crawford and Punto. Good start, but the likes of Dick-K, Aceves, Cook and other duds in the BP should never pitch in a Sox uniform again.  W/numerous highly rated prospects and a good chunk of cash they should be able to assemple an OF better than Ross, Ellsbury and Scott Hairston. I'm don't think ethe dynamic duo of LL and BC are up to the task of reuilding the Sox. The only stiff that BC signed that contributed was Ross. Hopefully, the Sox can assemble a competitive team in 2013, the Yanks are showing their age, ARod, Jeter, Pettitte and Rivera's careers are winding down.

    Re: My Outfield in 2013

    I want Ben to get creative and turn this team's culture around.  Spend big and be bold this winter.  Don't let 2013 be a bridge year but a championship year or else you will have 2 miserable years to start your career as GM.  Take the risk on Hamilton because return prize will be enormous and fans need something huge this winter to forget the last two seasons of Red Sox.  Don't re-sign Ross but trade for Shin Soo Choo as our RF.  Trade Ells + 1 prospect for Lincecum.  Bring up JBJ and let him get matured in major league.  Trade for Mauer to man our 1B and split times with Salty as backup catcher.  Iggy should be fine as a hitter in major league next year. 

    Lineup would be,

    JBJ-Pedey-Mauer-Papi-Hamilton-WMB-Salty-Choo-Iggy

    Bench Ciriaco, Sands, Mauro Gomez, Lin

    Rotaion,

    Lincecum-Lester-Buch-Doubront-Lackey

    Pen,

    Morales, Hill, Taz, Alex Wilson, Breslow, Melancon, Bailey

    Great, Mauer, Papi, Choo, Salty, Hamilton.

    Besides the obscene cost, are the Red Sox moving to Yankee Stadium, with all those lefty hitters?

    You do realize they play in FENWAY PARK, don't you?

    The Red Sox would need to deplete the system to acquire Joe Mauer and Shin-Soo Choo via trade. Whom should the Sox trade?

    Did the acquisitions of Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford two years ago help Red Sox fans forget two seasons without a postseason win? The winner of the Josh Hamilton sweepstakes may be the long-term loser.

    Yes, Agone and CC acquisition relieved some to forget about postseason win but they created more stress afterward didn't they? We need to forget about last two seasons with Agone and CC.

    Sox taking half of Mauer's total salary left on his contract would help reduce cost of prospects.  Lavarnway, Rubby, Swihart, Cecchini seem fair deal.

    Choo won't be that expensive to land since he only has one year left on his contract and Indians won't extend him.  I believe he could be had for three 10-20 ranked prospects.  Indians need young SP who can be ready in near future.  Britton, Workman and Jacobs seem trigger their interest.

    Anyone with a brain knows the RF at Yankee Stadium is a hell of a lot easier to hit HRs out of the Fenway.

    The 302 at Fenway is a joke. because it immediately goes out to 380. Ted Williams complained about the number of HRs it cost him and how many he'd have hit in Yankee Stadium.

    They didn't have the RF bullpen for some of Teddy's career.

    But you are right, just after the foul pole Fenway's RF is deeper than NY's for quite a long measurement until it reaches right-center field, then it is slightly closer until the pen ends and the triangle makes it deeper aagin.

    My first question is a rhetorical one because I already know the answer to it, I'm afraid, and that is if Cherington has the where-with-all to get creative and daring at the same time and get us a good team that includes a solid outfield.  I don't think he does at all, but I keep my fingers crossed that I am now underestimating him because of the rotten job he did last winter in upgrading our team....NOT!!!!!!!----Melancon, Bailey, Padilla,Carpenter, Stewart, Lillibridge, Repko, Valencia, Beato, Ohlendorf, Silva and the immortal Justin Thomas.  Let me see, did I forget anyone?  Oh yes, Cody Ross, his one good acquisition.  The first question is can be resign Cody or will be mess that up.  Odds are he will mess that up if we go by past performances, so let's hope he has grown in his position and somehow ace meddler Larry the Lizard is kept out of his hair since he is more ignorant of baseball matters that Cherries is.

    Are we going to keep Ellsbury?  That's another question.  Ross for one position, Ells for another and, pray tell, is next year the year Ryan Kalish finally is healthy enough to claim the third spot?

    To me, pitching and first base are much more important. We need at least one solid starter and it might cost us Ellsbury to get one.  If we can't get that man we keep Ells and take our chances at his FA after next season.  We cannot afford another 2012.  As for first base, no way in hel@ can we endure a bum like James baLoney, the Dodger reject.  We must upgrade that position and very quickly.

    I hope the Red Sox resign Ross.  I read a rumor somewhere that the Braves will make an aggressive run at him. 

    Quincy Market > CNN

    Samuel Adams > Coca Cola

    Cape Cod > Callaway Gardens

    Boston over Atlanta, it's a no-brainer.  LOL
