    The Red Sox didn't seem to think much of him. He didn't appear to be part of their plans at all, even with openings at 1B and LF. Seems like this could either work out really well or bite us in the rear, but I'm hoping for the former.

    I guess we can add Hanrahan to the good in 2011, but not as good in 2012 stockpile:

    5.4 BB/9 in '12      2.1 BB/9 in '11

    Lester, Pedroia, Ellsbury, Victorino, Napoli, Bard, Lava, Bailey, and Oprah.

    As soon as the forum reads about Hanrahan's increase in walks last season, the vultures will descend upon this moment of content. A fleeting moment.



    Enjoy it while we can.  

     

    Maybe the Sox saw something in his pitching motion last season that they feel is easily remedied and therefcore he is a great snag for the team.

      Don't tell Carnie...... But sounds to me that Sands is another "overcooked" but a potential "star" !!!!





    Or his ability never has translated past the AAA level...

    Since they want Hanrahan more, I presume.



    Nice retort.

    Maybe Gaby Sanchez could be part of the deal then. They need another 1b.

    So spoiled have I become.  It's been an hour since any news, and I am wondering what is the hold-up.

    Geez.  It used to take days for these things to be resolved and for the press to release information.  Darn internets and tweeties have made me soft and anxious for a treat!

    Sands is basically Jonny Gomes, but with a glove.

    Sands has 4 HR's in 251 MLB AB'sat the age of 25! Hardly a Holiday type! I am really liking this deal so far depending on who the other players are.
