Why do people even post on here?Only certain guys will play with the sox.you need cookie cutter guys.like ok we need a certain guy for this job.why not get the best players there are out there.therefore,i don't understand the posters opinions.you didn't like going with rookies.not enough good ones at least.no rodney we have too many good ones already.bailey should be brought back when they let him loose?no arroyo because he is in the past.if i get this correct you want buchholtz,lester homegrown talent.then webster,raunado and barnes this year.trade peavy and lackey and dempster and whatever crap you post.
You're taking this too personally. One of the things I've noticed in your posts is that your fond of acquiring guys that cost real money. If you want to acquire another BP arm and #8 SP, you need to say how we are going to stay under the cap.
You also don't address any fit issues.
Your Arroyo plan is to sign Arroyo for I presume ~ $16M/2, then trading Dempster and presumably eating some salary, and then putting him in the BP. I don't see switching #6 SPs as being a big deal, and I'd prefer to see Workman take over that role anyway. In addition, why would Arroyo choose the RS knowing that he probably wouldn't get a lot of action?
On Rodney, our BP is now Uehara, Tazawa, Mujica, Breslow, Miller, Workman, and likely Badenhop or Britton. Who would you replace and why? And why would Rodney want to come here for a supporting role?
