Re: So, What Pitchers Should the Red Sox have paid market value for?

Bedard and Harden can barely last a season between them. Their IP in August/September, when these guys are usually needd most, will not be much more than mine.
Jonathan Sanchez on a minor league deal is an absolute, something I recommended in that really long pitching thread about too much time, etc. Also, Chien Ming Wang and Chris Young are excellent MiLB candidates, something that should not be ignored.
Of course, this team does need a little bit more that just depth,
Not sure why Softlaw wants Derek Lowe so much to name him twice. Unless it was once for his arm and once for his potato salad gut. And on top of that, this guy is pushing Wastefield age...
This is the clown who wanted us to sign Ben Sheet and Bedard long ago... you remember, the year both of them didn't play much at all due to injuries.
This is the clown that suggested we improve our staff last year by offering only these contracts:
$1M/1 to ...
Bedard signed for $4.5M/1
B Chen signed for $9M/2
Colon signed for $2M/1 and was suspended as he likes to point out to me.
Garcia signed for $4M/1
Oswalt signed for $5M for a partial season
C-M Wang signed for $4M/1
As you can see, most of his suggestions were about 4 times too low, and so his plan to address the rotation that eventually ended up with a 5+ ERA was zilch, nada, zee-row!
His other position, one of the few in which he agreed with Ben, was to make Bard the starter. He even was upset when the pulled him, and softy said his game logs showed he was "decent".
This clown can't even read or comprehend basic English or math. He reads my posts and determines I have been for Ben's signings. He reads a suggested offer of $15.5M/2 for McCarthy as $31M for 2 years.
