In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
"Seriously "Dude", using "Dude" shows how the demagogue won 50% of the last national electorate. It's a droning juvenile slur."
Since you brought up politics as you are wont to do, just a reminder that the dude won with a sophisticated on-the-ground "get out the vote" operation that triumphed over the greedy corporate interests you defend like a soldier taking your own bayonette. Though I guess I can understand why you would take it personally that the American people don't want wingnuts in charge. Oh well there is always this forum for you to deposit your political drivel in.
As for Ellsbury your contempt for him is irrational, but ironically enough your position on him has finally wound its way towards valid as his contract comes close to expiring. The OP is right, moving him during the season would not make as much sense. It will be interesting to see what the front office wants to do here. I'd like to see the trade before the season - but a gamble that he will have a great season again could pay off with a better haul come the deadline. I say more him sooner and send Boras packing....That said there are plenty of months before the season starts, so maybe this thread will get to 500 or so, we can only hope.
You do realize that both Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr., as well as Deven Marrerro are represented by Scott Boras right? Boras isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
Ya beat me to it carnie. Boras will be around the Sox organization for many years.
