    Good move, dumpster profiles on the cheap is the way to approach first half. The summer will provide bad economy teams and a fire sale trade market with better value for starting pitching depth. The Red Sox already have pumped over 50 million in MLBPA bums, who need to start producing and be ready for work every day.

    "psst!....Vincente was the guy in the painting with his ear cut off."




    Padilla spells his name without the first 'n'...Vicente.

    Just to help you avoid future embarrassment.

    Is there another option besides hiring players who are members of the MLBPA?

    I like the signing. Another option is never a bad thing. If healthy and touching 95/96 why not. If he cannot crack the starting rotation he will be used out of the pen. Sox can score runs with the best of them so it makes sense to secure pitching.

    Re: Sox to sign Vincente Padilla

    i have mentioned before that i think that the sox should sign even a couple of more of these padilla type guys.

    low money, low risk.  pawtucket rotation if nothing else.  maybe not real high rewards but certainly could be.  the yankees got that high reward last year with their two scrap heap guys.

    sign 6 or 7 similar guys a year and maybe two of them pay off at some time during the season.

    i hope the scouts are still out there looking for a couple of more of these guys.  it is always easy to build a couple more mounds down there in florida for them to throw off of when they all get there.

    Would rather it be Harden, but I guess Harden wants a major league contract.

    Padilla has the same skill set as Aceves, in terms of being a good option to provide long relief and spot starts.  Maybe this frees up Aceves to be a starter, if he proves ready to be effective that way in sprin;, or maybe this frees up Aceves to return to his role, if Padilla proves ready to be the 5th starter in spring.

    Just not sure of this guy's mental/emotional makeup (kind of like Aceves in that way too).  Let's all (except the yankee boggers here) hope Padilla is 2012's Alfredo Aceves.

    Sorry but I saw enough of this in 2009 with Penny, Smoltz, Saito, Baldelli and all the other throwaways we signed that year. We are not a pauper team, if these guys are in addition to a trade for Garza and an Oswalt signing then okay. But not alone.

    As far as I know, $176 mil. is still the second highest payroll in MLB. Does anyone have updated payroll figures?

    Is it possible to get a pitcher that isn't plagued with health issues?
    I guess the answer is no, unless you spend the money or trade to move payroll.
    The Sox have two players they could trade, Youk and Scutaro in order to free up some cash. I suppose that neither would draw any interest however.

    I think one way of looking at how good our team looks is to determine value of our players in the eyes of other teams.

    Do you and AL34 just get back from the Pensacola Bocci Ball Tournament?

    I'm not sure there any left since the retirement of Kevin Millar.

    I'm a fan stockpiling as many arms as possible, but Padilla's mental stability really worries me.   My understanding is that he is a real head case.  I don't really like the guy, but since he's signed with the Sox, I have no choice but to hope for the best with him.

    Hey, anyone know Colon's cell number? Get a hold of him and have him send his witch doctor to ST with a shipment of "treatment materials" so we can salvage some of these guys off the scrap heap. If he balks, offer him a donut factory and a lifetime supply of sausages.

    He signed with the A's. Liked their buffet table variety better.

    At least his health issues are not his arm, shoulder or elbow.  I think this is definately a wise move on Ben's part.  I have a great deal more confidence in Padilla panning out than either Cook or Silva but time will tell.

    I remember, it seems like to me that Padilla was tough every time we faced him. I remember him totally shutting us down at Fenway a couple years ago. So he's got it in him, remains to be seen how much and how often.

    Re: Sox to sign Vincente Padilla

    I am so tired of hearing about what the Yanks got out of Colon and Garcia last year. How many cases are there of teams getting that kind of production out of two reclamation projects at the same time? Plus, they only went that route after being rebuffed by Lee, despite making the most lucrative offer for him. Then they made a concerted effort to get Felix. And, by the way, if it was such a smashing success then why didn't they repeat the same strategy themselves this year? The truth is that the Sox FO appears to have decided to prioritize resetting the tax rate this season over winning. If Bobby V can work miracles with cast-offs then great. Otherwise we'll just sacrifice the season and give up a year of the primes of Gonzalez, Pedroia, Ellsbury, etc.

    I cannot argue with you about the Sox FO prioritizing the tax rate over spending big on FA, but my guess is that they feel they can do that (stay under the tax threshold) AND still win.  And, if they are duking it out in July and need to go over the threshold by a bit to shore up some glaring need, I would bet they do it.

    seriously, this literally made me LOL.....we wish our Red Sox pitchers looked this fit...imagine Jenks, Beergut Beckett, bloated Lester, and Lackey trying to look this slim in a wife beater????

    thanks for the good laugh -

    Ah, so it's a union issue.  Brilliant insight, as usual.

    Par - I'd bet - and hope - they don't do that.  Either stay under or massively bust it, but to go over by a bit would likely cost them many millions in the future.
