    I don't give a damn if he's a citizen of another country

    Too bad Tim Wastefield isn't a citizen of China.

    Better he was a refugee from Cambodia.

    Maybe Theo should stick to signing only guys like Aceves and making minimoves like Salty and Aviles. Signing a hundred of them is better than his 2 latest big FA signings.

    Penny/Smoltz aren't exactly proud mantel pieces.
    And I'm betting other GM's have worse track records.

    True, and there are more than just those two, but Theo's percent of success with finding cheap diamonds in the rough is higher than that of his longterm FA deals.

    I remember Billy Beane signing Frank Thomas in 2006 for only $500,000. 
    Thomas helped guide the A's to the ALCS. 

    Didn't Billy Beane turn down the Red Sox GM position in 2002?

    Can Wake be "the stopper"?

    No better time to reach a personal milestone and stop the losing streak.
    No better time for a 10-game homestand.

    One thing: Weiland is scheduled to pitch Thursday vs. the Rays. I don't think that's wise in that they just saw this kid. I would opt for an alternative.

    I have an idea, let's bring back Paul Byrd. or John Smoltz, or Brad Penny, or John Burkett, or Mark Portugal, or John Wasdin, or Jeff Fassero (the starter not the reliever), or Matt Clement AFTER he got hit by a linedrive, or Brian Rose......

    Right now I'd be happy if the Sox had Dana Kiecker, John Dopson, and Mike Boddicker.

    Wastefield hasn't won a game since June 23, so the only stopper will be if the law of averages stop his pitiful losing streak.

    Dopson was one of my 90's favorites... same for Scott Williamson, Scott Bankhead....

    me too, burrito, Dopson was a horse. Loved Boddicker's curve ball. One of my favorite David v. Goliath stories was the day Jeff Sellers blanked Dave Stewart's A's at Oakland. Jeff Gray was a great reliever for Sox, then he had that weird illness.

    Kiecker was a kicker. Here's betting that staff would have also bit the DL dust with Curt Young as their coach.

    Why do so many keep addressing pitching??  Until the bats get a little sock back into the game, they won't go anywhere, no matter who takes the hill!

    The bats will comeback. They always do.

    Gray was terrific, I think it would have been really exciting to see him healthy and see how his potential unfolded.

    Lee Smith was my main man (late 80's) and the day they aquired Jeff Reardon I was as much up in arms as I was when they signed Lackey. Smith was a better closer with more years left than Reardon.

    Don't meant to butt in in the middle of a discussion but ... Dopson? Horse? Really?

    He had one decent year with the Sox 12-8, 3.99 ERA 28 GS, (29 total games), 163.2 IP as a starter (169.1 IP overall). He averaged 5.8 IP per start. (That's a horse?) I guess he'd fit in nice in today's game.

    He must have gotten hurt -- I don't remember -- because he pitched just five games the next two seasons then came back with records of 7-11, 4.08 ERA and 7-11, 4.89 ERA.

    Loved Boddicker.

    Too bad about Gray.

    Yes Dopson ended up not being much in the way of long-term value do to injury... but he had the one good year and he like so many others likley could have been better without injury.

    We don't have any alternatives. Softy's myth of kids being "held back" has been exposed.

    We might.
    1) They could risk going with Bowden.
    2) Use Atchison for 3 and go from there (it worked last year in a game).
    3) Bedard might react well to therapy and give us 5 or 6 frames.

    Weiland will be easily exposed and IMO it will be a major mistake to pitch him.
