My other prediction I made on a past thread. I chose Thornton and Luke Gregerson for the Sox pen. Starting pitching is just unbelievably overpriced this year and certainly not worth the haul of prospects teams are asking for, especially for Lee.
Gregerson will certainly cost a prospect or 2, but not top ones and hes under control for another year. he can get RHH out and will mix in well with our group in the pen.
I say the Sox stand pat with SP and go with a RHP for the pen and hope Buch comes back.
As of this morning we are THIRD in the AL in SP, but NINTH in RP. There is no one reasonably priced out there who can replace Buchholz, and we definitely need a RHRP or two. Essentially, I agree with you. Fortify the pen and hope CB comes back healthy.
Buchholz is done. He is not coming back since he doe not have the mental toughness to work through minor ailments.
Without a 1or 2 pitcher, the RS will go nowhere in the PS. We need Peavy or Lee.
You have no idea about Buch. Your just whining because Buch made you upset that he wanted a 2nd opinion and was overly concerned about his throwing shoulder. If he wasnt coming back the Sox would 100% already traded for a front line starter...
We dont NEED Peavy or Lee at the price theyre asking for. That ridiculous.
