    Quick Poll: Who do you want in our rotation?

    thanks for participating

    *Update: Sox aren't pursuing Wandy Rodriguez according to Rosenthal
    And he also reported that Sox are interested in acquiring everyday SS...

    Really??

    I think Wandy would be a nice addition for L-R-L-R combination.
    Lester-Beckett-Rodriguez-Bucholz

    But Astros have to eat most of his salary thou..

    Re: Quick Poll: Who do you want in our rotation?

    I would say Wandy and Floyd. Wandy could possibly be had even though he's got a $10 M salary this year and $13 for next---I think if we went with Bowden, Doubrount and maybe a third prospect they might eat over 1/2 of this years money bringing him down to perhaps fav Lux Tax status.

    A 3.96 ERA with 180 + innings that would be a good value especially considering Bowden and Doub are out of options---use them or lose them.

    Moonslump wants Tim Wastefield in the rotation, and would offer 1 to 2 million to retain this master.

    I wanted Aceves last year , and I still think he should be given the shot at starting now. That he is " too valuable in the pen " is not a good enough argument. Nothing trumps starting pitching.

    Gavin Floys. He'll be less of a salry hit on the tax limit than oswalt, and he's better, healthier, and an innings eater.

    I am guessing that the Sox will pursue the Oswalt deal for a one year deal with incentives as opposed to a high salary.

    Usually agree with your posts...but...Floyd is healthier...and an Innings eater, but he is no where near the pitcher that Oswalt is. As for the Salary hit...you know alot more about Cap calculations than I do....but if Floyd is making 7mm for 2012 with a team option of 9.5mm for 13(with some sort of buyout I would assume)....wouldnt the AAV on the remaining contract be 7mm+, or when you acquire him does he carry the original AAV of the entire contract with him? The   7mm number wouldnt be significantly different from Oswalt

    Wandy AND Floyd?! There's still a chance they'll bring in another starter, but zero chance they bring in two, unless one is on a minor league type deal. Garza isn't a realistic option at this point either...

    Re: Quick Poll: Who do you want in our rotation?

    Of this list I'd go with Floyd, but my first choice would be to wait and see what we have with Bard and Aceves in the rotation.  We get Dice-K back mid-season, and Miller, Doubront, Bowden and Tazawa still have the potential to step up and become significant.

    If we save our money, we could pick up a Cain or Greinke mid-season, and Floyd will likely still be available as well.

    Does anybody know how we are doing right now relative to the luxury tax?  It seems like with Cameron, Drew & Papelbon off the books, we should be much cheaper than last year's team, even with Gonzalez's raise.
