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!

    Lester is "the money pitcher". I'd never bet against him. I don't get trading our best young player for a pitcher getting paid FA market money anyways. What's the advantage? Just sign 1 or 2 top FA pi more »

    I'd try to lure Headly with a huge one year deal. Make it worth his while, while minimizing our risk. He may go for it, since he can put up a big year playing in Fenway and then get a large and long d more »

    Cecchini will not be an every day 1B southpaw just like Holt will never be an every day player. If the Sox stick with the bunch we are trying out at SP and 3B then I feel next season will be much the more »

    I think whatever battle there was, it is now over. Cecchini will be the RS 3rd baseman when the season opens in 2015. You can take that to the bank![/QUOTE] Care to wager?? There is ZERO way Cecchini more »

    Assuming Bogaerts stays at SS and Miller moves to 3B, his OPS of .653 this year would have put him at #19 of 25 third basemen withi 100+ ABs. No thanks. I would take my chances on Cecchini first. Judg more »

    There are 200 MLB players with 800+ PAs vs RHPs since 2012. Nava has the 11th best OBP vs righties and the 36th best OPS vs righties since then. The sample size is large enough to validate his worth t more »
