    Whither Salty?

    What do you think?  Keep him or trade him for 2014?

    Re: Whither Salty?

    Hes a free agent is he not? So the question is sign him or dont. I say keep him around if possible. While we're all annoyed that he didnt do well in the postseason, we would not be here without him. Hes arguably one of the best all around catchers in the AL. He would be missed. Ross is not a full time catcher, and Im not sure Lavarnway is ready.

    Only if you lose Ellsbury.  Can't afford both........and Jake is much more valuable; especially on the current club.

     



    Ellsbury is a gonner.  He will get 7/120 from somebody(I say SF).  It's JBJ time in CF.  McCann is also only 29, and plays a position that is very sought after, but hard to find a player of his calibur.  He could transition to DH or 1B in the latter years very easily.  His cost should be about 6/100.  

    I like it.

    I hope not....Bradley and Middlebrooks are definitely not the answer from all that I have seen from them... Bradley is completely overmatched at the plate.

    He will cost almost twice as much as Salty and bring us little better.

    Re: Whither Salty?

    JBJ reminds me of Austin Jackson or Brett Gardner.  He'll be fine... just needs some AB's in the show, and he will figure it out.  I would love Choo, but expecting him and McCann would be unreasonable.  

    Look,  I love Ellsbury... but he is gonna be in the NL next year... either SF or StL is my prediction.

    Really Moon?

    5 Silver Slugger Awards, and 7 AllStar Games says otherwise.

    McCann has never KO'd 100 times on a season in his career.

    Can Salty match that, or have even 1 of those nominations on his resume?

    Give him 6/100 and he can transition to 1B or DH in years 4-6 when he is still only 34/35.

    We won the WS with Ross as the catcher.  Why do we need to "upgrade" at that position?  I want a glove there.  For years I wanted G Laird; so someone like him.  Ross was really the "10th Player Award" winner of the post season.  That's the kind of guy I want catching for me.



    Because Ross is not a full time catcher... never was.  Did you not notice his grey beard?  He is no spring chicken.  I want Ross to stay... but he can't play 120 games.  50-60 maybe.  

    Salty KO's way too much, and defensively he is sub-par.

    If we don't get McCann, the Yankees will.

    6/100 for a CATCHER with 5 SS Awards & 7 AS Game nominations who is only 29 is too much?  

    And he achieved this in a league that already has Molina and Posey.  Not bad.  Who in the AL as a catcher is better?  Maybe the kid in Baltimore,  that's it.  

    My point being... catcher is a valuable position, especially in the AL.  He's worth it.

     

    And, one last time... Ellsbury will NOT be a Red Sox player next year.  Face the obvious.  Love him,  but gone.
