    Start watching MLBTR waiver claims--40 man roster's due.

    Today is a pretty good day in baseball-lots of players being DFA to make room for protected Rule 5 players. Sox will designate their 40 man roster soon- hopefully players like Stewart, Beato, perhaps Kalish, Nava, Valencia, David Carpenter, Sweeney, DeJesus, maybe Atch, maybe Pimental, Britton will  go unprotected.

    Nava is what he is.  He wil not get any better at this point. Kalish , if he can stay healthy , may still improve. I would keep Kalish on the 40 man roster for another year.

    Sox 40 man roster due shortly--this might force Ben to make some moves he is uncomfortable making. With 23 pitchers on the 40 it should not be too difficult to guess where most of the cuts will be made.

    I am quite glad you are not GM if you would remove Kalish and Britton (whom Fangraphs places as the Sox #10 prospect, ahead of Brentz) from the 40-man roster.  Kalish did struggle last year, but the guy had barely played in the past season and a half.  Did people really expect him to step into an MLB lineup as if nothing had happened?  Kalish might be traded, but he won't be exposed to the Rule 5 draft.

     

    Sweeney is very likely non-tendered.  And I could see any or all of Nava, Valencia and DeJesus left off as well.  And maybe Atchison and Pimental.  I do NOT expect the Sox to completely deplete their bullpen depth and get rid of Steart, Beato and Carpenter.  THAT would be very foolish.

    Valencia, DeJesus, Stewart, Carpenter and Rosario.

     

    They did unload more pitching than I expected, although Kalish and Britton survived.

     

    I would imagine thus crowd would clear waivers, etc., except maybe Stewart...

    So here is the current 40 man roster breakdown 11/21/12:

    23 pitchers

    5 catchers

    1 DH

    11 position players other than catcher( keep in mind 7 start-4 reserves out of 40 players) that includes Gomez, Sands, Hassan, Sweeney, Iggy, Ciriaco, Kalish, Nava, Pedroia, Middlebrooks, Ells---

    BenC----you plan to go to battle with this group of 11 position players?

    They should have tried to deal Salty by now, so they could have protected Fields. A two for one deal (Salty and one of: Atchison, Breslow, RHill, or maybe even Ellsbury) could have solved 2 problems.

    Valencia is the only one that is dubious. I see that part of the "dream deal" is in the dumpster, DeJesus.

    Also, although I would have paid money to get InEpstein out of town, his "compensation" is in the dumpster.

    [/QUOTE]

    Further evidence that softy has no clue.

    The Carpenter not protected and sent to the "dumpster" is David Carpenter, the pitcher we got from Toronto with Farrell, not the pitcher, Chris Carpenter, we got from the Cubs in the Theo deal.

    Cris Carpenter is not yet in the "dumpster". He is not rule 5 eligible.

    softy, try to keep up.

    Silly clown.

    Stooge, in the dumpster doesn't mean anyone has picked up the trash. A Carpenter distinction without any import. One is in the dumpster and the other soon will be.

    Stooge, your geography is as bad as your baseball drivel.

    [/QUOTE]

    It was clear you thought Chris Carpeenter was not protected. Admit your ignorance and move on, clown.

    Perhaps the sox will move Lava or Salty or Vazquez foe a PTBNL to free up a spot for Gomes if he's signed or just DFA one of Kalish, Nava or Sweeney.

    Ben's infatuation for having 23 pitchers is beyond comprehension. He should DFA a pitcher to add Gomes or Ross or both.

    Keeping 23 pitchers was the right idea. There's a good argument that 24 would have been better (Fields).

    We will be making a 2 or 3 for one deal soon, and that will free up space for the overpaid FAs.

    Is there a non-pitcher not protected that you really think had a seerious shot at being a solid ML player?

    Hazelbaker?

    deJesus?

    Valencia?

    Theres a trade coming soon. Gomes will need a spot on the 40-man. We currently have 5 catchers, ones gotta go along with a couple more players.

    I think they will non-tender Hill and Atch. Both dont have much value with their arm issues and age.
