    The Nats will almost surely keep him.




    The Nats could also talk to KC to send Morse for (prospect) Myers.

    I also hope that BC is going to winter meetings with unsign contracts for FA signings or trades. There is some vacancy on the 40 man roster, especially the bullpen roster. Hopefully his first signing/trade will be for top notch pitcher and then right handed hitting power hitter. All the FA's are still out there that can fill in some holes for the Sox.




    The Royals would NEVER deal Myers for one years of Morse...



    Or 8 years of Morse...everyone assumes the Royals are "trying" to trade Myers and the Sox are trying to trade Lester...obviously not the case.  The Royals want a front end starter, so they looked into Lester, and the Sox listened, as they should have.



    The Sox listened.

     

    The Rays listened on Shields.

     

    No one bit.  Oh well. 

     

    But if fans think the royals are going to move their top prospect for a guy who, on their team, would back up their LF, 1B and DH, then the Sox need to be focusing on Myers and not Morse.

    With the Winter Meetings starting tomorrow--Sunday--hopefully BenC has done his due diligence.

    With all the time Peter A , Nick C, R. Bradford, Alex Speirer, Chad Finn spend writing about the Sox you'd think one would put Ben on the spot and ask him what his plan is to build this team. That would be my first question and I wouldn't stop asking until he presented it.

    I wonder what his plan is for the Rotation?

    Who are his top 10 FA targets?

    What's his plan for this years closer?

    What three SS would he trade for?

    Would he consider a Platoon at 1 B (Pena and Reynolds/Gomez?

    Would he look for Cody to play RF and Gomes in LF with Sands and Nava/Kalish backups?

    We as fans Mr.Ben would like some answers not the stand pat replies next week after the Meetings are over: "We laid the groundwork for some moves"--you said that after the GM Meetings. Tell us more! 

    "Did you make any headwy with the FA you've targeted?"  We talked with a lot of agents.

    BenC--this Boston Kitchen may be too hot--please go to the Cubs and be  Theo's asst. again. This is a very important season for the Sox--is it the beginning of a two year bridge? We need a strong GM that has a plan and is working the plan...

    It's probably too harsh but you've got $80 M to build a team with. That's more than a quarter of all teams have for a budget. It's not like he has Pres. O'Bama's job with real pressure.




    Why would you want him, or expect him, to reveal his plan so every other GM can know what hes up to? Reporters dont ask that question because they know no matter how many times they ask, a GM WILL NEVER be specific in revealing his plan...Nor should he...

    You don't trade Ellsbury for a one year wonder. Ranaudo has a boatload of potential,but maybe you swap him for a powerhitter. 1b is not Morse's strong position. DH and OF and he's only a marginal OF. Maybe Big Papi becomes the regular 1b man?


    Righthander Anthony Ranaudo is 23 years old, has never pitched above Double A (and has only nine games at that level) and sports a minor league career ERA of 4.59, including 6.69 this year.

     

    I've got to think that Ranaudo has limited trade value this offseason.




    Yeah...fighting a groin issue that obviously messed with his mechanics, and had himspending half the year on the DL. he needs to regain some value before we start thinking about throwing his name in trade discussions...

    The latest news on Anthony Ranaudo is not encouraging:

    I hope Ranaudo regains his health.
