    And I predict: Cubs win! Theo will over pay for Lester, whom I love but refuse to go to $140/6. Looks like it's Scherzer and a nibble at Cole for the right trade price, and a focus on keeping the offe more »

    Looks like 5/$90. I love the Panda deal, but worry some about Hanley's attitude problems historically and difficulty staying healthy. But all in all I'm very positive about landing both of these prove more »

    I agree 100%. If we ever succeeded in trading for a stud 3rd baseman, we could then focus almost exclusively on signing 2 front line starters. I'd love to add a left handed power bat to the OF by upgr more »

    This thread is discussing the unwillingness of a Red Sox employee to do what has been asked of him. Not an order given, because it can't be under the terms of the CBA, but a request made to a poorly p more »

    Will Middlebrooks has the drive and ambition of a sloth. He'll be working in some other craft within the next 2 yrs, and hopefully will be jettisoned by the Red Sox ASAP. The injury issue has been a t more »

    While I realize your arguments against long term contracts to aging veterans has merit Bill, I think you want our Red Sox to be a AAA club at times. You seem to hate Ortiz, clearly our only stud hitte more »

    Well, I just posted a 6 hr rebuttal of your latest post and had it disappear while trying to post it. Bah!! Annoying as hell. Here's the short version. 1. Show me where I said "how dare you disagree w more »

    Yeah, I think after this horrific season the Red Sox spending boldly to fix the team for next yr. is surely my biggest concern. I mean, what if the ownership group used some of it's billions, combined more »

    We're obviously not going to agree here Notin, not that I'm surprised. Your continual desire to defend the obvious failure of this front office in this area is amazing to me. I did say that according more »

    AAA is as close as one can come to MLB's elite pitching without actually being at the MLB level. There is clearly a wide gap between the two program areas, with AAA being the rough equivelent of MLB's more »

    I really love how this thread turned out!  It was admittedly touch and go for a bit there, but the many heartfelt anecdotes, the historical depictions, and true baseball wisdom and a love for the game more »

    Well said Danny! I've been a huge fan of Nava all along, such a great story. I especially liked your mea culpa. Many times on this board I've had to admit to being wrong. It goes with the territory wh more »

    Some good points, some amazingly bad spin to be seen in this thread. For the record, and to cut down on the deliberate obfuscation some are shamelessly displaying here, I declare no argument with the more »

    I hear you, and there's no doubt much truth in what you say, but that's not the entire reason for his rather strict policy. Another is that he hates the interuptions to the flow of good conversation, more »

    Anyone placing JBJ on the MLB roster for next season needs to have their heads examined. He will need another full season at AAA, at least. As for Ortiz Bill, I can only hope he continues to play as t more »

    I agree 100%. Jeter was a worthy adversary for decades and I respect him. He's never sullied his franchise's reputation in any way, and has represented MLB well. I also love his rule of requiring hous more »

      'A player is ready when he is ready' is a meaningless tautology.  If even a single person on the planet could determine when someone was at his readiness peak, they would be extremely wealthy.  Was more »

    Rofl! Yes Pumpsie it's certainly true what you say about team 1st vs. any player. But we were speaking about a specific subject, player developement, and how best to achieve results. My rather simple more »

  • Posted 09/21/2014 08:49:57 EDT

    Complete and utter nonsense. In the 1st place I carefully seperated Middlebrooks from the "kids" who are much younger. He's in a diffeent situation, as I pointed out, yet he was also mismanaged this y more »

  • Posted 09/21/2014 08:14:36 EDT

    I'm glad somebodies paying attention! Nava is the forgotten man in our OF conversations and he's almost back to .270 after a horrific start to the season. He's hit a ton since the allstar break and pl more »

  • Forum Post: Shane Injurino

    Posted 09/21/2014 07:48:15 EDT

    I have no illusions about Injurino (Love that moniker!). He is a total sissy and is happily collecting millions for nothing. It epitamizes all that is wrong with the MLB CBA. We need to move to an NFL more »

    I think I like B, but that would only be the case if a sports psychologist could get Craig's head screwed back on. Man alive, I don't think I've ever seen a post trade collapse this severe! Granted he more »

    To me this whole "let's watch Middlebrooks implode to zero value right before our very eyes" is exactly the kind of mismanagement of our youth movement I've been harping on here. Somebody should be fi more »

    It sounds like a worthy cause friend and I know KC fans are some of the best in baseball. As our season is officially over, I can wish your friend well as his fight goes on. I know you would wish deat more »

    Posted 09/09/2014 01:59:02 EDT

    Well said. We can have 1 or maybe even 2 easy outs in the line up if the other 7 are serious hitters. But trying to run with 3,4 or 5 low OPS guys is a recipe for disaster. Our pitching will be weaker more »
