    Re: Texas contacted Red Sox about Andrew Bailey

    "mrmojo, I think it would be a big mistake to start trading away members of this bullpen. It is one of our big strengths. The 2002 Angels went all the way because of their bullpen."

    Agreed - but with a not-very-productive guy like Bailey, I think you have to at least hear out the offers. Right now it looks to me like bullpen is the strength of this team, which is fine and dandy but does raise the question if we will be able to hand that strong bullpen leads often enough....

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    Trade Ellsbury and Bailey and Carp to the Rangers for Moreland and their top prospect. Put Bradley in CF, put Nava in LF, Shane in RF, Napoli at 1st and use Moreland and Gomes in the DH slot. If Ortiz ever gets fit enough to return as the DH, use Moreland and Gomes as pinch hitters for Iglesias, Nava, Bradley, Shane, Ross and Salty.

    Red Sox management is foolish to not make the weaker splits hitters and hitters with little power as occassional pinch hitter slots. Shane has little power and is weak on one side, ditto on Nava, Iglesias is a true SS so he's a weak hitter with no power, and Bradley isn't likely to have much power for a park like Fenway (see Ellsbury average power per year numbers from 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012), Ross is a weak overall bat, and Salty is weak on one side.

    Egos should not be a part of decisions on pinch hitters.  



    You might be able to pry loose Andrus, but definitely not Profar.

    Rangers wouldnt even give up andrus for 3 years of Upton. Not happening unless you sweeten the pot with another good prospect.

    moon The owner of the Tigers is pushing 90. They need a CF and most likely will need a closer.... anyhow your trade for Murphy... you should edit that before many more see it.   = )



    Actually, the Tigers CF is better than our CF.

    besides the Yankees, which isnt happening, I think the Rangers match up the best if were talking about Ellsbury too...

    Ugh. Wasn't thinking. Austin Jackson is obviously good.

     



    The dude is flawless in CF.  He's up there with Blair and Maddox from what I've seen.

    I would trade Bailey. For Rhp prospect Luke Jackson. Add him to the stable. Still really young and would come up with the Owens lower minors class. Really good upside.

    Ellsbury 1 year + Bailey 2 years + Draft compensation 6 years is > than Upton costs for 3 years



    noted: softlaw thinks 1 year of Ellsbury is worth more than 3 years of Upton.

    That isn't "Ellsbury"



    you can't feel fine about misrepresenting other posters statements and then gripe when it happens to you..  kind of hypocritical don't you think??
