    Re: Sox Get Carp

    Now the only thing the Sox need is another starter just in case the present ones fail miserably! Carp vs. Nava,Sweeney,Maier and Overbay for the one open spot....I've got my money on Overbay winning the B/U 1rst base job going away!!! Nava makes the team because he's a Switchhitter.

    Re: Sox Get Carp

    The funny thing about all the criticism of Carp is that this is exactly the type of deals that looks huge at the end of the year -- that flyer on a player coming off a bad year who was decent the year before and turns it around.

    It's also the type of player that when other teams get and produce, posters on this board whine about why can't the Sox find these players.

    Who knows if Carp will produce, but if he doesn't, well, the Sox gave up practically nothing. In the meantime, he adds competiton to the mix.  And isn't that what we want? Players who have to earn their spots instead of being too comfortable.

    In response to Joebreidey's comment:

    Half the world waits until a stock is at its peak before they buy.  Some people look for stocks that had a rough stretch and got oversold.

    Who do you think goes home with all the money?



    Try this experiment.  Find 5 or 6 stocks that have traded at historic lows to close out last year.  Buy those stocks and wait 12 months. 

    You will be broke.

    When a stock hits historic lows - it is almost always a bad investment =- beccause that historic low goes lower. 

    The Sox have picked up 5 or 6 historic-low stocks this off season.  No need to guess how that will turn out.

    An investor would be better served putting his money into TWO solid stocks than 6 speculative, gasping, collapsing stocks.
