    Trade...when do you think it happens?

    With the gluttony of catching and surplus infielders...we seem set for a trade. When do you think Ben makes a move?

    We do not have a glut of catchers if Napoli falls through.   So nothing  on that front until that gets resolved...

    Right now it looks like Iglesias starts the year in Pawtucket, Drew starts at short and Ciriaco is the utility infielder.  If Napoli pans out, they'll likely get a lefty bat who can play first and possibly the outfield, but I don't think it will be Swisher.  If Napoli falls through, then I think they'll try to sign Laroche.

    me too. i would want swish more but i think if the sox had to choose to surrender their second pick to it would be the nats over the yankees.

    I head Ethier became available.  Salty and Brentz could be starters for Ethier.  Ells could be traded for a pitcher.  Vic at CF, Ethier at RF

    Perhaps the Dodgers would take Lackey for Ethier and Cash as they would like to add Swish?? I would like to add Swish to play either RF or 1 b if Nap is a no go.

    salty is signed for 1 more season. lava has years of team control left and could turn into a 30 HR/year guy. if i had to pick 1 to trade, it would be salty. his value for the present is greater, and that increases if the receiving team is a contender

    I agree with this trade except for the Dodgers might not be willing to give us an additional player. They also may not take Melancon. They also have A.J. Ellis, who had a solid year last year.

    Three way deal:

    Red Sox get: Ethier, Holland, cash

    Dodgers get: Salty, Brentz, Miller, mid-level prospect(s)

    Rangers get: Ellsbury, Ellis

    Re: Trade...when do you think it happens?

    With the signing of Victorino last week, the Red Sox now have 39 players on their 40-man roster -- and they haven't officially signed Dempster, Napoli or Koji Uehara, let alone Drew. It stands to reason that a trade or two could be in the works in order to free up roster space.http://blogs.providencejournal.com/sports/red-sox/2012/12/red-sox-sign-stephen-drew-to-one-year-deal.html

    Re: Trade...when do you think it happens?

    Unless the Sox get the right compensation back, I doubt that any trades will be made despite the roster being at 40 now that Uehara has signed officially.

    As it stands right now, here's the 25 man roster for opening day:

    1. Salty (C)
    2. Napoli (1B)
    3. Pedroia (2B)
    4. Drew (SS)
    5. Middlebrooks (3B)
    6. Gomes (LF)
    7. Ellsbury (CF)
    8. Victorino (RF)
    9. Ortiz (DH)
    10. Lester (SP1)
    11. Buccholz (SP2)
    12. Lackey (SP3)
    13. Doubront (SP4)
    14. Dempster (SP5)
    15. Bailey (CL)
    16. Uehara (BP2)
    17. Bard (BP3)
    18. Aceves (BP4)
    19. Morales (BP5)
    20. Miller (BP6)
    21. Breslow (BP7)
    22. Ross (C2)
    23. Kalish (OF4)
    24. Ciriaco (IF)
    25. Backup 1B/OF

    Iggy, Lavarnway, & Melancon head to Pawtucket

    The tradeable commodities would be Lavarnway, Miller or Morales (although I'd be hesitant to move him), & Melancon. If someone is looking for a defensive SS in the deal than adios Iggy.

    With all that said I'd like to  move roster pieces and a prospect or two for someone like Kendry Morales...although he could change the entire look of the roster, playing 1B and OF, while Napoli could catch more. As a switch hitter Morales might be a nice offensive fit.

    Re: Trade...when do you think it happens?

    Here's the current 40 man roster:

    http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/team/roster_40man.jsp?c_id=bos

    As stated above all 40 slots are full and Drew, Dempster and Nap aren't on it.

    They have time and the can DFA if no trades are made.

    DFA candidates if no trades:

    Hassan, Beato, Pimental, Butler, Nava(not currently on the 25 man  depth chart). Who might get claimed and in this order--Pimental, Beato, Nava, Butler, Hassan.

    Re: Trade...when do you think it happens?

    Well, there are alot of teams that are looking to make a trade, but they are having a hard time making one.  Like Arizona.  They alway want to trade Justin Upston, but they are asking way too much in return.  Does that give Boston an advantage on trading Ellsbury?  Maybe not since Ellsubry is in his last year contract.  These teams know that if they would like to have 48 to 72 hours window period to try to give Ellsbury a new contract, but they all know they will fail cuz of Scott Boras.

    Really, Boston should not be in any hurry to try to make a trade.  Their team is pretty all set except Napoli.  I rather to see Boston to make a blockbuster trade to get one very good pitcher in return like Felix or Cueto or Cain or like that!!

    For now, Bosto can just stay pact!!
