    WOW. Kemp - the retirement league stud, isn't even in the top 10 OPS since 2009 from his own peers. What a shocker!!!

    "Retirement League"????
    How about it if you ask Miguel Cabrara, Josh Hamilton, Jason Bay, Adrian Gonzalez, JJ Hardy, Vlad Guerrero and Jose Bautista for starters, how the NL is so weak compared to the AL.
    Funny, these guys, among others chewed the AL pitching up and spit it out.

    I like the mega-trade option.  Ellsbury's value will be at an all-time high - use him to get some super prospects from contending teams, and send them in a package with our own to get an Upton, Stanton or McCutchen.  Not only does it make us younger and more balanced, but it makes the Crawford signing look smart in retrospect.

    ACtually, it might make more sense to offer Ellsbury for Ryan Zimmerman.

    If Youkilis moves into a 1B/3B/DH role, as has been specualted by us clueless types, the Sox could move Ellsbury fora RHH 3B.

    Zimmerman, like ellsbury, has two eyars left.  Unlike Ellsbury, they are going to cost about $28mill.  Even though arbitration, it is unlikely Ellsbury costs half of that over the next 2 seasons.

    Washington has the recently drafted Anthony Rendon to step in at 3B.  I know he has not played a single inning of pro ball yet.  But there is only one team that has a postion player on their roster whom thye promoted there the same year he was drafted.  The team is Washington, and the player is Zimmerman.   Given the similarities in the two, and thjat it worked before, it is not so ridiculous that Washington would promote Rendon right to MLB.

    And the Nats were very hot for a CF at the trade deadline, with rumors that they were actually considering trading Drew Storen for Denard Span.   Granted, they kept Storen.  But what would they give up for Ellsbury?

    Oh, and since this is a RF thread - let Reddick lose the job before we replace him...

    You haven't told the truth in months. I was getting HanRam way before your idiotic Mike Lowell ofr HanRam rant.

    Nice to see Miller prove what a joke it has been to not invest innings in younger pitching.

    What a joke it would have been to bring him up in April as you wanted. Look up his April AAA numbers.

    When can we expect Miller to revert to his career norm?
    (5.72 ERA/1.746 WHIP with over 60 MLB starts)

    What's Miller's numbers since mid-2009?

    (hint: he's ranked #182 out of 187 starters with a 5.61 ERA from 2009-2011)

    Silly clown. Give it up.

    Ram, you know I was a big "go get HanRam" poster from way back. Back before the time you wanted AGon. Back to the time some joker (not softy: we actually agreed on this idea long ago, but he thought FLA would take Lowell!  LOL) kept saying the Marlins would never trade HanRam because the needed to fill up their new stadium. Well, it didn't work. HanRam will make $45M the next 3 years. Now is the time to make an offer and switch him to OF.

    Boy moon if the Pirates gave us McCutchen the entire organization should be thrown out of the league. As mutch as I would like him I want to see the Pirates put somehting together and get some pride restored. 

    I wonder if Jason Bay would turn it around if he went back to the Pirates, you never know.
