    I noticed that Linares had an invite too. But no Brentz...

    I wonder if Linares will get a real shot this year.

    I don't get why they seem down on him.

    I don't get it either. He seems to be a very good outfielder with a decent arm, and he's hit at the higher levels of the minor leagues. Maybe it's his age...

    I think it is all about him not being on the 40 man roster. To move him onto it before he needs to be there would mean we have to drop someone else. That's the balance-tipper.

    I get the 40 man roster thing, but they had a chance to put him on the 40 man this winter and protected Alex Hassan instead.

    I'm not sure what the Hassan situation was, but sometimes I think  GMs choose to put a lesser player on the 40 man, because his time is up. If it meant losing Hassan to put Linares on the 40 man before he needed to be on it, I can see the reasoning. I'm not sure how the time thing works, but maybe that's the reason.

    Hassan is not a bad player.

    Although Linares has shown more power than Hassan, AH has shown he has a better track record of getting on base consistantly...

    That was a Bill James decision. There will be more according to JH.

    There are two issues here - one debatable, the other not:

    • Debatable:  should Linares be given a chance to play for the big team?
    • Not debatable:  if Linares is not to be given a chance yet, don't waste a 40-man roster on him

    He is pretty old. He has been basically labeled as a career minor leaguer.

    Well put. I think Linares needs to do better than just have a gret ST; he needs to have a few good months in AAA before he gets the nod. He may also have to be doing better than Brentz as well.

    I like this kid and hope he gets a look someday soon.

    What happened to Prior? Is he still under Sox control?

    Re: Non-Roster invitees to ST

    Red Sox upper management needs to hire middle management who understands age, medical science, basis statistics, and athletes who have enough character to hold themselves accoutable to the team's performance.

     

    So... this is why you advocated extending VMart. Hmmmm..... 

    (BTW, we got Barnes and Owens as draft comp for losing VMart, and used some the money saved on AGon, who helped us to dump your old pal CC, Beckett and Punto and bring in a couple of nice young arms .)

    Released last year, I'm pretty sure.
