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!

    This from MLBTR... Rodriguez represents a significant return for Boston on Miller... Rodriguez came into the year as Baltimore’s 3rd-best overall prospect, per Baseball America. The 21-year-old has more »

    21 year old AA LH'd SP'er.


    I don't think he's on the 40 man roster and I am not sure if he needs to be added this winter (rule 5).

  • Forum Post: Cespedes Contract

    Posted 07/31/2014 02:59:07 EDT

    He cannot be offered arb, so there can be no QO, if he bolts after 2015.

    My guess is, we hope to extend him, but I'm not to confident on that anymore after the Lester fiasco.

    If I had a nickel for everytime someone said "(Player X) is going to wear out the green monstah!!" upon Player X's signing ... that being said, Cespedes is going to wear out the green monster!!!!\ Som more »

    I expected getting players under longer team control, so I am a bit "confused" as well, but I suppose we can trade Cespedes and Craig next deadline, if it looks like they don't fit or won't extend at more »

    My guess is we sign Shields.

    We trade for a good #2 starter.

    We trade for a big bat.

    We role the dice.

    Agree to disagree, but don't waste your winter with more fantasy trade proposals. The Marlins are not moving him. I'm pretty certain Stanton will be traded by the next deadline, but it could be the fo more »

    ...it would have been better to keep Lester and Gomes and hope for the best.

    A comp pick in the 30's is your idea of "the best"?

    They will only give a giant contract to A NON-SOX PLAYER. THAT'S IT. Since Crawford, they have not. They re-signed Napoli and Papi to $16M. That's the most they offered anyone since CC that I know of. more »

    ...THEY ACTUALLY GET POSTERS/FANS TO SAY, "WELL, THEY DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE, HE WAS GONE." NO, HE WASN'T IN THAT POSITION. NO, HE WASN'T GONE... It's two separate arguments.  I agree, the Sox made a ba more »

    moon, I agree and could be wrong but we seem to be loading up to bring in a guy like Kemp in a Lester deal and Stanton for our best prospects, not just one bat. I think the FO knows guys like Betts, J more »

    Not being a stat guy, I'm curious what the financials are on Stanton. If he were traded to the Sox, would he fit into the formula? If so, I wonder how long. Stanton made $6.5M this year and turns 25 t more »
