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:
- Salty (C)
- Napoli (1B)
- Pedroia (2B)
- Drew (SS)
- Middlebrooks (3B)
- Gomes (LF)
- Ellsbury (CF)
- Victorino (RF)
- Ortiz (DH)
- Lester (SP1)
- Buccholz (SP2)
- Lackey (SP3)
- Doubront (SP4)
- Dempster (SP5)
- Bailey (CL)
- Uehara (BP2)
- Bard (BP3)
- Aceves (BP4)
- Morales (BP5)
- Miller (BP6)
- Breslow (BP7)
- Ross (C2)
- Kalish (OF4)
- Ciriaco (IF)
- 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.
Yup! That is easily a 95 win roster.
Yup! You are easily a huge whiner.
How about that. I post something positive and am accused of whining.
