About Me: Became a huge Sox fan after moving to Portland, Maine in 1970 and following the trade of my boyhood idol, Tommy Harper to the Red Sox. Tears of heartbreak turned to tears of joy. Go Sox!

    The clause was put in the contract in case he missed a year due to injury. He did just that and got paid handsomely for that lost year. I am 95% certain, lackey would play for the minimum, if it came more »

    I agree we will be collecting more prospects moon. The problem is they will probably be lower level prospects because guys like Peavy, Doubront, Carp, Gomes, Nava, Middy and others simply have little more »

    There is not one single chance in this world Lackey plays for min.

    There was a rumor the Pirates were interested in AJ, and the Brewers and Tigers have interest in Drew.

    I also remember Pedro Ciriaco being the 3B of the future, and Nick Green being our new SS. I also remember DFAing Buchholz to make room for Michael Bowden. Many of us see players through small windows more »

    Trade any and every player not under team control for 2015 or extended (Lester & uehara???) by the deadline. Play the kids. Give them a learning curve. Expect some failures, but give the kids a chance more »

    Heyman says that Uehara stays since that would signal to the fans that the FO has given up. We're starting 5 rookies tonight with de la Rosa as our pitcher. I seriously doubt anyone thinks Uehara is g more »

    Yes..in the minors. MLB pitching is a whole different animal so don't expect him to hit that decently in the majors. I agree he is for sure a defensive upgrade and it will be nice to have a catcher wh more »

    I welcome the excitment. I don't think we see Marrero, Barnes, Owens this year. Possibly I'm wrong on Marrero. Britton has taken a step back and all things considered Swihart won't be up next June. Te more »

    ...and according to fangraphs, not AL, JBJ hits FBs better than any other pitch type:

    FB +1.3

    SL -3.6

    CT -1.2

    CB -3.0

    CH -2.6
