    Re: Peter Abraham's Projecting the Red Sox roster-Do you agree?

    I can't remember a season with less competition for the 25th slot or a starting position than this year.

    Unless there is an injury, the roster is pretty well set. Sizemore over Carp may be the only question, but Carp is out of options.

    We may have to get creative with the DL to keep everyone onboard. Here are the players with options remaining who do not need permission to be sent down:

    1: Tazawa, Lava, Middy, Britton, Nava, 

    2: Webster, de la Rosa, Wilson, Wright, Butler, Vazquez, Hassan, Bradley, Herrera

    3: Holt, , Workman, Bogaerts, Ranaudo, Cecchini, Brentz,

    Thats probably the way it will shake out, but I like Workman in there instead of Capuano. Carrying three LHRP is excessive.

    [/QUOTE] I like Workman also, but every guy on Abraham's list is a veteran of several MLB seasons. I think it's a shame for both Workman and Britton that they both won't make the 25 man roster, however they are both on the 40 man and are just an injury away from the bigs. I also like Grady Sizemore, but in his case it's a matter of his readiness to compete for a whole season. Capuano signed a Major League Contract and that's the hedge that he has.Plus they were going to carry three lefties in the pen anyways. Mijares, Layne and Britton are the other two guys competing for a spot on the 25.

    Only way I see Sizemore makes the team out of ST is he's 100% healthy and productive while JBJ struggles or gets injured.  If JBJ has strong ST, regardless of how Sizemore performs, I don't see why teams sends JBJ down to AAA where he already posted .374 OBP in handful of games last season.  If JBJ and Sizemore both puts up crazy numbers during ST, I think either Carp or Nava could be dealt for pieces needed if there's one.  Carp is more realistic trade candidate than Nava.  Sizemore could come out of bench against righties and Nava plays the first base.  

    [/QUOTE]

    I disagree. I believe they writing is on the wall for Bradley. The Sox want him to earn it and I think after last year's performance and the way they handled Igelias the only way he is on the roster is if Sizemore physically can't play.

    having more pitching depth is NEVER a bad move.  The Sox have also been applauded all around baseball for this move being a great value, fit and depth move for them

    That is not necessarily true. When the pitcher who was added to provide "depth" has a low likelihood of contributing the added depth becomes an albatross. Would you want Afredo Aceves added now as depth? How about Jeff Francis (ERA: 6.27)? Or Vance Worley who pitched 48 innings+ for the Twins last year and had an ERA well over 7? The depth individual has to have some basic level of talent, and thats where we disagree. I think I am going to have to get in line to bash him come June or July because he is so totally ineffective; you think he can contribute somehow.

    Ok but those are NOT Capuano's numbers.  The position he is being thrown into, he has much much better numbers there than most guys on most teams.  

    You are banking on a pitcher with very limited MLb experience and a .497 ERA and a WHIP higher than 1.4 to be better than a guy with a track record.  Capuano has a MLB track record of adding positive value every year to the teams he pitches for Workman has no such track record.

    Having young pitching is awesome...and everyone around here knows I'm a huge lover of prospects and will be the first to jump into a prospect conversation.  But relying on those guys alone with zero other options is a mistake and a risk.

    Having Capuano adds depth, and he has been a good pitcher (not great) the last several years.  Workman could very well be a bad pitcher in 200 innings his first full year.  If Capuano comes in and fails, he's cut and Workman is thrown into that role.  But if the opposite happens and Workman fails and Webster hasn't progressed and none of Barnes or Ranaudo are ready to contribute without growing pains...then all the prospect pitching depth in the world means NOTHING.

    If you want to sit here and tell me that Workman will have a better reason than Capuano that is fine because he very well may.  But saying that the signing is a bad move is completley inaccurate and a failure to understand the value of pitching depth.

    [/QUOTE]

    1) It's not Carp's poor defense at 1B or in LF that is the reason he did not win a fulltime slot last year, instead it was better overall performances and track records by Napoli and Nava.

    2) I like Carp, and have mentioned several times, I'd prefer we trade Gomes than him, but that since Gomes was John's fave, it won't happen.

    3) I'm not a huge Bradley fan and suggested we trade him last winter, so I don't know where your "blind love for young players" is coming from. (I also mentioned that if we signed Drew- an old guy- I'd prefer we start the young guy Boegy in AAA until we gain the extra year of service.)

    4) I do not think Sizemore will be near his past performance level by opening day, so I do not see a stiff competition for the CF job this spring. I hope I am wrong, becuase Grady has a high upside potential.

     

    I'm not saying there is no way a fight develops for the 25th slot or for a FT position, but going into ST, I can't remember a season with less competition for an opening day role. I do think many of the younger players will be in fierce competition to prove they deserve to be the first guy called up once someone gets hurt, but that's another level of competition.

    Possibly Cap or Britton for the M's Franklin then move WMB for prospects. Or let WMB and Franklin battle it out then move the loser in a trade before ST ends.

    Let Workman, Webster and Ranaudo have strong PawSox seasons.

    I hope you are right about him, obviously. I just think there are better options. Workman is just one of them. We are loaded with pitching depth. Had Dempster not decided to go AWOL we would probably have had to unload a SP. Capuano is the third LHRP in the pen (he is not going to start), and the least talented. And I got cake on my side.

    It's not like Miller has been the picture of consistency or good health. Capuano could fill two roles:

    Spot starter, especially vs lefty-laiden teams

    and

    Lefty specialist

     

    Here are the OPS against numbers vs LHPs over recent years:

                     2013  2012  2011

    Capuano  .660  .599  .653

    A Miller    .725  .429  .812

    Capuano is a veterean looking to find a niche late in his career. The longman/spot starter role is an ideal fit. Basicaly his role on the team will be to pitch multiple innings in games where our starters can't go 5 full, serving as bridge to the bridge or late in games when we're getting blown out with an occasional start due to scheduling and or injury. A valuable role that is ideal for a veteran. Not one you would want to have one of your top starting pitching prospects fill.

    We'll soon find out what role the Sox see for Workman. The assumption is that he'll start the year in Pawtucket pitching every five days. While I'm certain that Workman would rather pitch in Boston, if indeed his future is as a starter he needs to pitch every five days and build his innings to ready himself for the expected 200 innings workload of a major league starter. Last year he totaled 140 IP add 20 or 30 innings this year and then in 2015 he'll be on target to add another 20 or more and be ready to go 200.

    For all we know Capuano would be a very good reliever.  Almost every reliever is failed starter.  Pitchers can usually dial their stuff up, and effectively become different pitchers in shorter looks.  I'm not saying this is Capuano, but if his role was to be a reliever then we don't really know (I'm sure the Sox have a good idea) how he would be out of the pen.

    But like I said before his role may be the mop up guy with a few innings in the pen on nights to give the bullpen rest and a spot start here and there.

    That is NOT in any way shape or form the kind of workload you want to give a youngster still moving up the learning curve.

    Would you take a kid out of school full time and only make him go every other day, or 8 hours one day then 2 hours 3 days later and then not at all for a week? while he was a year away from graduating??? No you wouldn't.  Throwing a prospect, young, and developing into that role is like doing that to kid.

    Looks about right. See Workman starting yr in AAA as starter, first one called should someone go down. If Sizemore healthy and plays well in ST, could see a trade of either Carp or Nava to make room. All three of these guys pretty much same LH hitters or prefered LH, play outfield and 1B. Biggest difference Carp would probably be better replacement 1b should Naps go down for extended period, Sizemore better defensive outfielder and could play CF fulltime should JBJ struggle. Nava the one you probably feel most comfortable with knowing what he will provide, is Carp really as good a hitter as he showed last yr and can Sizemore stay healthy. This is why they pay Ben the big bucks.

    I believe Sizemore, if proven to be healthy, is the CF on most nights. This kid was one of the best players in the game at one time...and would be solid in CF.

    I think JBJ hits AAA for at least the beginning of the season with Cherington looking to move Nava or Carp during the season.

    I think Workman wins a bullpen spot over Badenhop, or Capuano if he is not effective in the spring.

    At this point, I also think Drew is out of the equation unless Boras bites the bullet and allows the 1 year deal at less than the qualifying offer the Sox gave him.

    BA came out with their positional rankings today.

    They had Workman ranked #3 for relief pitchers.  This kind of feeds into what I've heard out of the scouting community a lot.  "Workman is likely going to be a reliever...but a VERY good one at that"

     

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/minors/position-by-position-rankings-relievers/

     

    This would make all the sense in the world for him to start back down in Pawtucket.  Yes he had some succes at the MLb level.  But he has really had ZERO to little experience pitching out of the bullpen.  THe Sox probably plan on giving him a nice long look down in Pawtucket and will let him get used to pitching out of the bullpen. 

    I then think he gets the permanent call up some point this summer.

    Thats probably the way it will shake out, but I like Workman in there instead of Capuano. Carrying three LHRP is excessive.

    [/QUOTE]

    I don't.  It makes a lot more since to give the swing man role to Workman.  Workman needs to be on a consistent schedule, starting or relieving.  That role can be very sporadic and on/off...and is not good for a young player still learning and developing.

    If the Sox view Workman as a long term starter I'd like Workman/Webster/whoever is pitching better to slide into the role and keep Capuano as the Long reliever/spot man 

    [/QUOTE]


    I agree Hugh. While Workman did a fine job last year, the Sox view him as a starter and would be wise to keep him on a regular schedule in AAA until hes needed. Capuano is an older vet who is perfect for that spot. Workman needs his innings and regular rotation schedule.

    [/QUOTE]

    I suggested Workman; there are others who would better fit the role that Capuano is going to fill-RDLR, for example. I hope I am wrong, but I can see Capuano being nothing more than cannon fodder in the ALE. If we need a spot starter there are certainly better options than him, and as a reliever, his WHIP in the NL was over 1.4. Thats a huge red flag.

    [/QUOTE]


    Who else would you have gone after?

    Hes a good vet. Nothing spectacular, but then again hes a #6. Im sure our kids will have plenty of opportunities to get starts this year. If its not Capuano, its certainly going to be someone in that mold to be in that role. Keep in mind that guys like Workman and RDLR need their IP's and wont get that in a swing man type role in Boston.

    The thing about Carp is his swing. It is taylor made for Fenway, for a LHB. I think the Mariners got rid of wrong guy, they should have moved Smoak.

    The guy that could be big difference this year is Hinojosa, first guy Ben signed this off-season, and had high praise for him. Projected him as swing man. Capuano is just insurance, I expect him to be dealt during year.
