    Sox to meet with Vincent Padilla

    BR reported that Padilla left winter league to come visit Boston doctor. 
    Experts think Padilla will get the chance to fight for a rotation spot if he passes physical and stays healthy.

    another low cost starter. 

    When will this recruiting stop??

     why do you need it to stop?  It costs the team essentially nothing to try a bunch of these guys out.  And if one hits, great.  If not, no harm, no foul.  If there is no reasonable big fish out there, I am glad they are leaving no stone unturned in respect to possible reclamation projects.  Why are you so against it?

    Where do you see that I'm so against Ben adding low cost starters?  I'm just curious Ben will do anything else besides adding low cost pitching depth. 
    Ben signed Cook(Pending), Germano, Silva, Miiler(Re-signed) already.  The point is, if you find a good one out of 3 or 4 low budget, that's awesome.  But if you find a good one out of 8 or 9, even though they are all low budget, that's quite waste and useless to me.  Ben's gotta stop right about now.

    Its only a waste if you dont have the resources to cope with trying them out, or if trying them out is keeping some young arm from getting a shot in camp.  I feel pretty sure that they are not going to tax the coaching staff with any more than they can handle, or block anyone from being evaluated that should be.

    Posted by seannybboi[/QUOTE] The reason why Ben has been shopping at KMart is because Henry is forcing him to budget unlike the Theo days where he had Carte Blanche! If even one of these guys gives the Sox 170 innings or makes 55 appearences from the pen then the Sox got a steal,if they can't make the bog team then they serve as emergancy material stored safely at Pawtucket...

    hopefully, one of these low price spreads will pan out; it will help ease the pain of the inepstein mistake known as SLACKEY.

Posted by sportsbozo1[/QUOTE] They've made it clear they'll go over budget for the right player, but there just isn't a lot of value out there. Spending 10 plus million on a Roy Oswalt type makes zero sense in this market. Giving away your top 3 prospects and going over the tax threshold for a Matt Garza makes even less sense. Their big ticket items were Ortiz, Buccholz and Gonzalez this season...

    let's hope one of these low price spreads works; it'll help ease the pain of the major GM mistake known as SLACKEY.

    Why should it stop?  Low cost, no luxury tax relevance at present, some potential in each of these pitchers.  What is wrong with that?

    What happened to the no knucklehead edict? Padilla is a first class jerk. I am all for no harm no foul, but no knuckleheads please.

    I'd even give Softy a chance if I thought he could pitch a bit.

    My understanding is that Vicente Padilla despite his talent and propensity to be injured brings plenty of baggage with him.

    He was released from the Rangers for intentionally throwing at batters and Joe Torre also had an issue with his decision making on the mound.

    You can bet that all parties from Gary Tuck and Tim Bogar to Bob McClure, Bobby Valentine and Ben Cherington will gauge whether he's a fit or not. The least of concern is his physical status. I wonder what Ryan Sweeney thinks of Mr. Padilla? I'd say Vicente has two chances of being signed and one is slim.

    Re: Sox to meet with Vincent Padilla

    Since none of the Sox best pitching prospects are really MLB ready, I could see another signing or two of this type.  Perhaps a Brandon Webb or Kazmir, if they want to sign a minor league deal with invitation to ST.  Four hasbeens seems about right; if one of the four makes it, you get your money's worth.  Padilla is certainly not a done deal, but MLBtraderumors sure makes it sound like it is imminent.

    Still hearing that the Sox are in on Kuroda, which would really be an important signing.  All these minor league deals are like throwing spaghetti to see what sticks.  It worked pretty well for the Yankees last season.  But it has worked out poorly for the Sox, at least with Theo making the choices (Smoltz and Penny anyone?).

    I agree 100% with you on the baggage he brings with him.  The Rangers got tired of his head hunting tactics and seeing their own best players getting hit in retaliation for Padilla's antics and dumped him.  Nobody else has really latched onto him since.

    Vincente Padilla is "getting closer" to a deal with the Red Sox, according to this tweet from Jon Heyman of CBS Sportsline:
