    What? So the Yankee's dealt an over-performing journeyman (plus a prospect) in exchange for an underperforming star, even though the journeyman was playing better than the star?!  http://www.mlbtrader more »

    What's not to understand? Lester said he won't negotiate during the season and the team has agreed to respect that. The End. Now the team has to assess whether or not they can sign him in October. If more »

    Oh good! Another thread about Jon Lester. And one that ignores the facts on the ground! Just what we needed. Jon Lester has said he doesn't want to negotiate during the season, and the front office ha more »

    The down side is that at the end of a five-year contract, Lester will be 35-36 years old, and there's a significant chance he won't be performing at a >$20mm level anymore. I'm sure if Lester would ag more »

    Sox are now at .500 at Fenway. Six games under .500 on the road. If they can make up some of that ground on this road trip, there's hope yet. A little bit, anyhow.

    I would not be upset if the Sox traded Napoli for the right price, but they best have a plan for first base in 2015.

    There's no doubt the FO should have found a way to extend Lester before the season. Most fans were on board with that even then, and now with the value of hindsight we were right. But that does not me more »

    I think it would be rash for the Sox to trade away a slew of well-regarded prospects for a rental who would probably not be able to get us to the playoffs this year. I would feel differently if we wer more »

    The thing is, the Sox aren't loosing because of their pitching. They're loosing because they can't hit a lick. Buchholz' return will pick up some slack for the starting rotation, as Peavy, Lackey and more »
