    Betts belongs with the club. We still need to get rid of another OF besides Craig. I do not think that Bradley will ever amount to anything but a very good defensive OF. At worst, then, JBJ can be a v more »

    A good first step, long overdue...and needless to say, the potential implications for baseball are fascinating.

    Maybe...maybe not. We'll never know. It's fine for him to say that now, but he also stated around the time of the trade that being dealt elsewhere wouldn't affect his desire to come back to Boston. To more »

    Of course, if the RS were the highest bidder for either player, the end result might have been different - but they weren't. I don't think it's that the trades killed our chances of re-signing them... more »

    These packages built around the likes of Kelly, Marrero, Coyle, etc. may seem fair to us, but it would have to be underwhelming if you're a Nats fan. Would anyone have wanted to trade Lester for that more »

    That's very optimistic at this point, and pre-season predictions generally mean jack, but if we add a TOTR pitcher, a backup catcher, and maybe an additional bullpen piece or two, I'll take our chance more »

    Among qualifying pitchers in 2014, Zimmermann was 12th in fWAR, 12th in ERA, 11th in ERA+, 9th in WHIP, 7th in FIP, and 5th in winning percentage. There is no doubt he's a solid #1 pitcher, so let's n more »
