    Farrell said after receiving good report from dr Andrews buchholz more willing to pitch with discomfort

     

    That answers the question of needing a starter. Buch just needs to work through it, now that hes been assured by the best in the business that hes not in danger of any further damage.

    "RHP Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez update: Field has been narrowed to five teams and a deal could come down in next couple of days."

    "What's certain with M.A. Gonzalez: The price has gone up & number of teams has gone down. I imagine usual teams still in but can't guess"

    Blue Jays, Braves, Cubs, Dodgers, Marlins, Phillies, Rangers, Red Sox, Twins & Yankees were among teams with serious interest in MAG"

    Counting on Buch to carry us through the playoffs is a big gamble, but overpaying like the Cubs did for 12 reg season starts by Garza is a much bigger risk.

    It may cost a lot to get a starter in the winter, but at least you get 25+ starts for the cost. Woulda-coulda-shoulda...

    Nick Cafardo - Boston Globe, National Baseball Writer Red Sox stayed in the Matt Garza talks but never fully according to a ML source. The Cubs never insisted on two top pitching prospects

    Alfredo Aceves has appeared on the PawSox Roster on the 7 Day DL for those inquiring minds.

    Not sure if he remains there indefinitely but he has a place to call home for now.

    At this point, RedSox can't really plan on Buchholz given uncertainty. Certainly impacts deadline maneuvers.

     According to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune,  Jake Peavy and Jesse Crain are drawing a lot of interest and scouts from the Diamondbacks, Reds, Braves, Red Sox and Dodgers; these teams are expected to be in Chicago through the end of the week to watch one or both men pitch.

    This would be a trade that might be like getting more bang for your buck.

    The bang first---The Sox have finished with the Angels unless they meet in the playoffs. The other four AL East teams play the Angels 18 times in the next two months. This proposed trade makes the Angels a stronger team with Ells in the leadoff spot followed by Trout, Pujols, Hamilton, Middlebrooks.

    Known Fact--we will not be able to sign Ells long term.

    Ells, Lester and Middlebrooks to the Angels for Trumbo, Downs and Callaspo. There may have to be some other players involved. It's risky!!!!!

    We will be getting Buch back in mid August. If Peavy is traded to the Sox he replaces Lester---

    Rotation before Buch returns: Lackey, Peavy, Workman, Doubie, Dempster.

    Pen: Ue, Taz, Downs, Breslow, Thornton, Beato, Britton, DeLaTorre(Some combination).

    Trumbo could do RF with ShaVic moving to CF. If Nap moves on next season Trumbo plays 1 B.

    Actually, its not a known fact the Sox will not be able to sign Ells. They have as much chance as any team to sign him. They have the resources if they choose to allocate a portion of it to Ellsbury and pedey being the ones to build the team around.

    IMO, This move makes us much worse. Trumbo is almost useless to us. We have OF and 1b covered. Ton of K's low BA and OBP. Has 22Hr from the right side is all. Callaspo has an OPS under .700, not much of an upgrade there. And although Downs is doing good, we just traded for a mid 30's LHP out of the pen. With Morales on the way back, Britton, Breslow and Thornton, were all set there. Buch will not be back until Sept for 4 or 5 starts, not mid August.

    Sorry Mad, but getting rid of a starting pitcher when one is already on the shelf for the next 5 weeks, your startiing CF whos producing better than any leadoff hitter right now, and selling low on WMB is more than risky.


    “We’re certainly not going to take away from the major-league team right now. We’ve got a chance to win. We’re trying to help the major-league team, not take away from it,” said Cherington.

    Why would the Angels want Ellsbury for 2 months?

    Lester's club option at $13M for 2014 is voided if traded. Why would they want Lester for 2 months?

    Maybe turn it into a blockbuster by getting the Royals to add Greg Holland and maybe take on Alex Gordon's contract too.

    I wouldn't give much for just a two month rental.

    I was thinking of adding in LUKE Hochevar.  He was a former #1 overall pick who never panned out.  I mean relatively speaking most draftees don't make it to the big leagues so he's not a complete bust.  But you'd expect more than a plus 5.00 era from the former first overall pick.  Still it looks like he has found his calling card in the bullpen, as his stuff really plays up well there.  I don't like the idea of giving up prospects for relievers but packaged in with Santana I love the idea. 

    Although I like Alex Gordon as well.

    Maybe a Brandon Workman/Allen Webster/Daniel Nava/Frank Montas/ KDLC for Santana/Hochevar/Gordon.

    Not the sexiest trade but I think it's fair for both sides.

    Between the rumos with Peavy, Santana, and Gonzalez....I feel like the Sox are trying to make some kind of move that will impact and strengthen this team going down the stretch.
