Move Middlebrooks, Salty & Drew for pitching....... Bogarts to play 3rd, IGGY SS, and bring up the phenom catcher !!!
whos the phenom catcher to bring up? The one in AA or the one in high A?
Oh, and just so you dont go all trade drew salty and Ellsbury crazy, heres what the GM has to say about tradingplayers currently on the team...
“We’re certainly not going to take away from the major-league team right now. We’ve got a chance to win. We’re trying to help the major-league team, not take away from it,” said Cherington. “As far as the minor-league system, we’ve got a lot of really good players and players that get asked about all the time, players that we value and think are going to be here for a long time. It depends on the situation.”
I'm guessing he's not referring to "the next Carlton Fisk".
Unless he wasnt aware that hes been the BU catcher in Boston for a while now.
By the team not even playing Lavarnway against just LHP says a lot to what they think about him, or how they feel about Salty. Take your pick.
The "phenom catcher" would then have to be either A) Dan Butler (26yo-AAA) probably a solid BU on a contender and a starter on a KC, A's, rays, or Houston type low budget team. B) rank:#19, Christian Vasquez (23yo-AA) Who, although probably ready defensively, has more work to do and probably wont be ready until 2015 at the earliest. C) rank:#10, Blake Swihart (21yo-HighA) Minimum or 2+ years away. D) rank:#16, Jon Denney (18yo-GLC) who was just drafted last month.
Are any of them considered "Phenoms"?
