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

In response to Softlaw1's comment:
Why misrepresent my plan again? I said I would have paid B Mccarthy what he got paid. You know as well as anyone that I have mentioned him as one of my top targets this winter. (I actually said I'd offer him $24M/3.) I mentioned Colon as an option based on his value vs cost, which is what I thought this thread was about.
So, Moonshemp's 2013 plan is Colon. There is no value on the market to "improve the staff". For the first time, Moonshwemp has learned the hard way that the Red Sox don't need 2nd rate pitchers on 1st rate contracts.
Yes, I'd rather have just Colon than nothing as your plan amounts to.
My plan was to sign McCarthy, trade for Brett Anderson (a very specific offer you initially said was too much for "a bum", but then later said the A's would refuse), and trade for J Upton (in a much more realistic deal than your fantasy offer).
I mentioned I would rather have had Pagan at $41M/4 than Victorino at $39M/3 to replace Ellsbury after he was traded.
I said I liked the Uehara deal.
My plan would help us get better in 2013, but maybe fall short of being a legitimate favorite, but more importantly, the addityions all would help us in 2014 and 2015 and perhaps beyond in some cases. With the hoped for infusion of youth in 2014 and beyond and another strategic FA signing/trade or two would make us serious contenders in the future.
The deals we have made so far do not make us serious contenders in 2013, and most of the players rate to be in decline or gone by 2014 or 2015. Our roster is a joke now, but somehow you have read all my posts and conclude that I have supported Ben's signings. You are a clown, a blatant liar, and worse.
For once, it would be nice to see you restate a poster's position in an accurate way. Stop constructing strawmen, naming them seemingly at random with BDC poster's names, and then repeating your drivel ad nauseum.
