    Y NOT GET PUJOLS FOR THIRD BASE AND PUT YOUK AT DH? OR VICE VERSA

    had enough of tek, wake, and papi. THIS TEAM NEEDS NEW BLOOD AND REAL leadership. unlike gonzo or a papi who just wants to hit, a pujols gets immediate respect and will get in people's faces and have the back of his teammates on and off the field. youk is still an affordable option and is signed for one more year. papi was ticked about getting only a one year deal and is increasingly a non-clutch pain. youk was a pain as well but at least it was mostly based on him not playin. plus with him apparently nailin tom brady's sister, how bad can the guy really be? imagine that lineup with ells-pedy-gonzo-youk-a rejuvenated craw? saving $ with papi, gives us money for pap and a pujols, and with drew coming off as well, the opportunity to extend ellsbury if he wants to play ball with sox.

    while we are at it, y not put bard and aceves in the starting rotation and outright cut lacky-distical if we canT trade him for a big bag of carrots while paying 90% of his salary. that will automatically strengthen the rotation and the overall team and our record.. period! you can always get bullpen guys esp if we re-sign pap. time to put wake to sleep, thats also addition by subtraction at this point. enough of the OLD GUARD!

    no, he's a first baseman.  He's not going to sign with a team to change positions.  Youk is a really expensive DH

    I posted same thread about putting Pujols at the hot corner after signing him.  Then we can trade Youk for a solid starter or DH him and let Papi walk.. But Pujols won't risk his reputation by playing 3B even though he has some experience at 3B and RF.  He's most valuable at 1B.  and plus all these "i'm right you are wrong" posters will attack your threads since bringing Pujols to the Sox is almost impossible.  But I really want to see Sox pushing hard for Pujols..

    I think signing Prince and DHing him is more logical choice here.  but again ppl like below will say he's too expensive just to DH.  But you know what??? If Prince produce runs HRs gets on base then he's worth all that money.

    You don't pay a guy 200 million dollars who plays a position where you already have a 140 milloin dollar guy.  And you don't pay a guy 200 million dollars to play a position he hasn't played in a decade.  If you wanted Pujols than the former G.M. should have held off on Agone last winter and made a push for Albert this year.  As the roster currently stands, there is a 0% chance that Pujols is signed.  Stop with the stupidity.

    Forget it.

    Do you think after the collossal spending on Crawford, Lackey and Gonzalez failed to bring results the first order of business is going to be to throw more big money at another high priced veteran free agent?...

    ...and put him at an unfamiliar position?

    Posted by jarretfromportsmouth[/QUOTE]YOUK IS STILL CHEAPER THAN PApI (MADE $13.5 this year) and will be far better without the stress on his body of playing third at ths stage of his career. pujols has said in the past that he prefers THIRD. he moved to first as a team guy to accomaodate scott rolens at the time. he volunteered this year to go there again. he's a pretty good guy out there. think about it. if ur pujols, u dont want to be hitting between gonzo and youk with ells and pedy table setting? what other team can offer that year after year? its a no-brainer. give the man his 10 years and 300M!

    This a joke.  Pujols have an elbow problem.  Plus he is already past the age of 31. By having him to play at 3B will put wear and tear on him.  Pujols know that at the same time he have seen so many 3rd basemen have too many injury from Wright to A-Rod to Chavez to Youkilis to etc.!!

    Best way to ask Pujols if he doesnt mind to DH, if not, then forget him!!  Simple!!

    Why don't you stop with your lack of thinking better baseball?? Uh... duh.... teams cant have two expensive 1B at the same time... duh... does that say on your "baseball rules for dummies guide"???  Pujols getting old and he just had his downward year started.  No one expects him to have career year from now on.  With money that he will get for his new contract, he better agree to terms he will DH at some point if AL team signs him.   Having a stellar offense like Pujols is everybody's dream.  It's not stupidity.  You just can't think different.

    If you like A-Gon shuffleing down the line  on ground-outs, you'll love Pujols,who has been doing the same since his rookie season.

    You're right, paying Pujols 20 million a year to DH from the time he is 37-41 is "thinking good baseball".  How could I have been so short sighted.....

     100% perfect thread. I really feel Albert will stay in St Louis. The Yanquis don't have room for him at first base and neither do Sox. Only team willing to throw money is the Mutts.

    It makes no sense. Why go out and get more expensive athletes? The Sox have plenty already. No Fielder or Pujols.

    Can you name one young DH in this league???  DH is designated hitter if you didn't know. They only hit they dont play defense.  because their offense is more valuable than their defense.. So you want to have his defense over others at the age of 37??? that's smart...

    I normally don't like what John Kruk says, but he was right on this morning when he said this team needs more guys like Bill Mueller and Mark Bellhorn.

    Posted by ZILLAGOD[/QUOTE]YES! its who u pay for, payg for jd drew, a duplicative non-needed with no clear role crawford, unnecesaary lackless is the problem. pujols is a LEGIT star! same with gonzo. no beef with his $, even ortiz. pap and pedy are also up there as will ells! like the idea of pujols becoming a DH after year 1 or 2. youk can be gone after next year. u can alternate between the 2. but yep eventually albert is yur DH!

    First of all, John Henry has had enough of signing high priced free agents for awhile and has no interest in paying Albert Pujols $25M so the team can exceed the luxury tax threshold.   The new GM will take the job with the understanding of lowering payroll and getting creative in any moves he makes to help the team until the farm system shows signs of producing major league ready players.

    No more business as usual.

    200 million is to much for an aging 3rd baseman. Get younger.
