    Tavares has been groomed since he was 15, now that he is Major League ready or so they say, you think Cards will be giving him up for Lester.

    Not clear why trading Lester commands a big price given that he's about to be a free agent?

    This is the situation the Sox have put themselves in. Lester in pinstripes is most likely option now

      



    Agree, Dodgers would not make sense. 3 Lefthanders, Rental, and you might not win it.



    the same people who tell you Grienke and Ellsbury were not worth signing now tell us a two month rental of Lester should cost the other team the moon...at least they're consistent in their cheerleading for Ben

    Maybe the Dodgers aren't a fit, or interested in Lester.  But the fact that he is rental is not evidence that he can't return that kind of value.  Peavy is a rental, and look what he brought back.  Lester is a much higher caliber pitcher, there is no reason why he would not bring back a much higher caliber prospect.


    LAD was rumored to have offered a prospect.  

    My thoughts are they might tie Kemp into a deal for prospects.

    In response to davidap's comment:

    If not LA for Pederson, someone will give the Red Sox a better return for Lester than what the Giants traded for Peavy. That's what makes the imminent Lester trade exciting.



    Peavy's return has question marks as well.  Escobar really tailed off this season, so dramatically there should be at least some concern.  I'm sure what we could get for Lester and Pederson is best in LF so far but has plenty of time to improve.  Joc could also have a higher ceiling than any young OF prospect we have because of the power potential alone which could also land him at 1B at some point.  With that said how good are kids like Holt, JBJ, Bogy and Betts?  I'm sure one or more may eventually hit 10 HRS or more but we currently have a bunch of powerless OF prospects.

    I agree Pederson and another prospect might be a better deal but very few smart teams in position to compete are going to go crazy for a rental so time will tell.

    I kind of feel the same for any rental Jasko, I suggested the Dodgers because of prior relations between the two clubs and the fact they also have too many OF's like our club.  The difference being is the Dodgers possess much more power so losing Pederson may not be a huge hit.  If we can get more somewhere else great but I don't think too many clubs will be throwing top prospects at us.

    I don't think that was me.  I haven't commented on trading Lester.  My feeling is that they butchered this badly initially, but if they want to pay him, it'll get done.  His obvious preference is to stay here, and the Sox Front Office now has a good idea what it will take.  They either commit or they don't.  If they don't, then you have to move him.

    Re: Trade Lester for Joc Pederson

    people are right above...dont just trade LEster for just Pederson.  Pederson and Seager make more sense.  But per reading the bleacher report...the Dodgers stated that they wouldnt even trade both of them of one of them to Tampa for Price.  If that is the case, that is same thing with Lester.

    Not sure why the Dodgers stated that they dont want to part them away.  But if they see that the Giants are upgrading their team, that mean the Dodgers need to counter them by making another deal to make the team better.  

    Now per reading bunch of articles about the Dodgers, Kemp's agent (Dave Stewart) is demanding a trade for Kemp.  His preference is to go to Boston.   I wouldnt trade Lester for Kemp cuz that wouldnt make the team any better.  Maybe to make another blockbuster deal such as to give Dodgers, Doubront, two former SF Giants's prospects along with Gomes for Kemp and another prospects that is not being block by any current Boston players at the same position.

    you trade Lester at this point because youre not going to get anyone in return when he signs with another team....why would LA give up one of their best prospects for a two month rental unless they could work out a long term deal? they already have the best 1-2 in baseball probably and thats about all you need in the postseason...Notin expects more than Pederson? i dont think that could happen

    As always - 100% correct!

     




    And yet we got Escobar and Hembree for Peavy....

    Perhaps a couple of deals if in fact the twitter is from a reliable source: Pete A or Cafardo or Rosenthal.


    Stands to reason the Sox  want to see med records for Kemp, Pederson, Urias or Seager.


    Perhaps we'll see Kemp and two of Peterson,Urias or Seager in exchange for Lester with 72 hours to extend him and Ue or Miller(with the same option).

    Now you're talking two top prospects for two rentals....that's probably even more unlikely than Lester straight up for a top prospect (which I think is more likely than others in here do)

    However, if there was another prospect coming over from Bostons side, LA might bite.

    I'm sure we all would notin but what if we could have Pederson and Stanton?  No reason we couldn't right?  Two power hitting youngsters in the OF are much better than none.
