    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: NOW is the time to strike for Bailey : Happy New Year, AL . Bailey's a solid closer, Sweeney will probably take over for Kalish in Pawtucket. The fact Bailey was acquired in a trade,as opposed to a FA, ie Madson, leaves more money to sign a starter. Good trade IMO

    Does Ryan Sweeney, the nearly 27-year-old with four years of MLB service, have any options left?

Posted by hill55[/QUOTE] Exactly, Hill. I'm pretty sure Sweeney will be in the RF mix for his defense alone. Although many seem to think that Ryan Kalish, he of less than a year of MLB experience will just step right into right after missing an entire season of development. I like Kalish alot and would love to see him tear it up this spring and win the RF job, but my gut tells me he needs at LEAST a half season in Pawtucket...

     Jasko I dont see the Sox putting another left handed bat in the lineup. Best guess is they use Sweeney in a trade. Charrington said he plans on going with Kalish in RF. I agree between his injury/surgery and loss of playing/developement time, it remains to be seen. With that said, at some point, you have to give the kids in your system a shot.

    Re: NOW is the time to strike for Bailey

    From Peter Abraham regarding Bailey's inury concerns:

    There are health issues. Bailey had Tommy John elbow surgery in 2005 while at Wagner College. He also an elbow procedure in September of 2010 and opened the 2011 season on the disabled list with a forearm strain. He did not return until May 29.

    “We had a chance to look into Bailey’s medical history and get to know a lot more about what he’s gone through,” Cherington said. “We’re very confident that he will come into camp ready to go.”

    Nothing there terribly scares me. For the price paid, and cost going forward, sign me up!

Posted by J-BAY[/QUOTE] J-Bay, you said you don't see the Sox putting another lefty in the lineup, yet you say "Cherington said he plans on going with Kalish," a lefty, in right. That doesn't make much sense. By the way, you must have been mistaken because Ben would never, ever say something like that.

    Not mistaken, Jasko. When Charrington was on NESN Hot Stove, Tom Caron asked BC about RF, he said he was planning on going with Kalish/Reddick. Reddick was the right hander, being traded, I meant he wouldnt replace a righty with another lefty in the lineup to platoon with Kalish. BTW why would "Ben, never ever say anything like that"?? not only would he, he did. GM's never talk against their own players. What should he have said, No way we're going with kalish and or reddick in RF??  whether he meant it or not is another discussion.

Third, Kalish missed a full season. He needs to play full time somewhere, likely Pawtucket. Ben may have said "Reddick and Kalish are "options" in right, but you clearly wrote that he said, "Ben is going to play right," which, again, he would NEVER say at this point.

    That's exactly what he said Jasko-----exactly. He said platoon, but with Reddick gone that's mute...no?? He didn't say option, he was asked directly about RF he said he was comfortable and planning on going with Reddick/Kalish. don't shoot the messanger jasko, just telling you what he said, wether you agree or not. You're right, Reddick is left. If Sweeney is not traded, I expect Sweeney and Kalish will fight for the RF spot during ST.

Maybe, like Clemens, you misremembered. One if the reasons I said he would never say "Kalish is our rightfielder" was because it would have been insult to Reddick. You didn't mention Reddick in first post at all. Again, he would never say what you initially implied...

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: NOW is the time to strike for Bailey : Our prospects are decent enough but our management lead by BC sucks for sure.

    Seems Ihtak is getting increasingly wrong with each passing day.

    Congrats to Dragon on the good call.

    He probably meant either/or.  It would make no sense to have both on the team.
