In response to bingobilly's comment:
My thoughts on keep/don't keep:
(1) Keep Napoli
(2) Release Gomes
not so much
(3) Release Bailey today
we need every experienced BP arm we can get down the stretch.
(4) Release Hanrahan
Yup. Maybe when he gets healthy we can give him a chance.
(5) Trade Lavarnaway (sp)
doesn't matter to me so much, i'd air on the side of caution in this case and keep him.
(6) Skip Jon Lester's next turn in the rotation
(7) Don't let Breslow pitch to right hand batters.
Breslow isn't just a LOOGY. His splits are pretty even. Switch out Breslow for Thornton and you have a good point :)
(8) Keep Shane Victorino and rest him every so often
Totally agree with this. i said last night, just shut him down. Just get him healthy and ready to go for the post season. He has been money when he plays.
(9) Give Uehara a raise!!!! The guy busts his butt...
Uehara is a madman. The rock of our BP (shoutout to co-rock Junichi Tazawa). i only worry about overuse. Hope they bring him back next season
(10) Trade Jackie Bradley Jr.
Agree with this. Once they sign Ellsbury they can move JBJ to fill a hole (SP or big RH bat)
(11) Keep Middlebrooks - he will come around...
like Doobie, Middlebrooks showed us enough last season to warrant a LONG look.
