About Me: I have been a Red Sox fan since the fifties, fell in love with watching Ted Williams. I have played, managed, and umpired at every level from Little League to High School to American Legion ball. I currently coach at the high school level.

    It makes no sense to extend him before the start of the season because his average annual value is what is used for computing the luxury tax and that value is sure to go up with an extension. So while more »

    Moon I'm not saying or implying that I saw this coming, but I've been screaming at my TV for years now to call the strike zone. My TV has yet to comply. I joke with anyone who'll listen that the MLB s more »

    Once upon a time, not so many years ago, the Detroit Tigers drafted Porcello with their first pick. He is a first round draft choice who was rushed to the bigs and was just in the process of putting t more »

    Boom, I would agree about your concern about Masterson if he was coming back from any arm-type injuries. But the injuries that plagued him last year were both an oblique and a knee, both of which he t more »

    Big tip of the hat to Ben for the transactions following the Lester departure. I was one of many who really wanted to keep Lester, but I don't think anything was going to stand between Theo and both g more »

    As good as Holt was early last year, we may have seen the best he has to offer. Hence the sell-high theory.

    There are a lot of things to like about Weeks as the 25th guy on your roster; steal bases, play multiple positions, low cost and can actually hit a bit. The fact that he cleared and is still under tea more »

    Totally agree Moon that Cespedes and Vic should be the two to go, both from a cost perspective and a roster redundancy perspective. Problem is we'll be selling low on Vic, since he is not battle-teste more »

    I see Porcello as an young, but very experienced, strike-throwing pitcher who is just coming into his own. I would swap him for Cespedes in a heartbeat and consider it a good deal for both teams' need more »

    I would pull the trigger yesterday on Cepedes for Porcello even up. The only reason I can think of to not do it is that Cespedes may be a piece in a Hammels deal. But I've always liked Porcello who sh more »

  • Posted 11/23/2014 09:37:55 EST

    I'm with you Moon. I'd trade him just for the salary relief. Coming off what just happened last year, this team has no need for any position player who does not figure to be here in 2016 and beyond. V more »

    I would sign him for 4/$28 in a heartbeat, maybe even 4/$32 because before this season is over we will be needing to replace Koji as the closer in my opinion. I wouldn't have given Koji the second yea more »

    Moon, isn't it possible, if we make some of those trades you mention, to then still place a Diaz or Ramirez on the forty man? And for what it's worth, I have seen Ramirez pitch and have been very unde more »

    The A's have gotten a lot of mileage out of Red Sox castoffs over the last few seasons. Hassan is a decent AAAA player who had no hope for a spot on this team; I hope he finds some success out west. I more »
