    We are all listening to our own arguments but not from the other side.  So let me at least make that attempt. I'm fine with the deal, so you know.  I could not agree more that keeping Lester is vastly more »

    Sorry, but I don't buy all the pessimism.  This guy is 28 and a solid leftfielder with some power and instantly our best overall outfielder, hitting and fielding.   Lester was gone once the talks stop more »

    I agree Lester will be traded if the right offer is made, but disagree there is any chance he will later re-sign with the Sox.  Whoever trades for him would be crazy to give up good prospects and not more »

    In response to moonslav59's comment: [QUOTE] Marreros bat has largely disappointed until recently. Maybe your expectations on offense for a SS is pretty high, but I think Marrero has looked fine on of more »

    I have seen Peavy pitch good games, but overall I don't mind losing him at all. Getting two prospects is gravy.  At the same time, I can understand why the Giants would take a chance on him.   And don more »

    Ortiz is 3d in the AL in rbi's despite hitting within a very weak lineups--to say nothing of his big role in three WS wins.  OP is nuts.

    Typical over-reaction from the Rays.  Yes, Ortiz paused to enjoy the moment and tossed the bat toward the Sox dugout and wasn't all that fast going around the bases, but it was not showboating.

  • Forum Post: Lester To Seattle?

    Posted 07/28/2014 12:06:10 EDT

    Lester is gone unless Ben C decides the offer isn't good enough.  I doubt Seattle is the place he goes to.

    Sorry, but nowhere is it written we have to pick one.  Both were/are great in their day (and way).

    Peavy looked OK to me last night but got an unearned run from weak defensive support.

    The Yankees are very relevant to the discussion with the understanding that they are spending money they can afford to spend which over the years has definitely made a difference in their on-field per more »

    The OP disingenuously announces that we can only talk about this year.  Last year didn't happen, nor did 2007 or 2004.  This is of course baloney because those years did happen, which means the FO isn more »

    Actually, I do probably fall into the dumb fan category, try as I might to avoid that label.  In this case, however, moonslav is just making sense.  I definitely want to keep Lester, who has had his u more »

    Shaughnessy is just being Shaughnessy, who is someone who likes to rattle our cages.  There are 30 teams in MLB, and the Sox consistently rank in the top ten, often the top five, in home attendance, a more »

    Bill James says no bunting, so the Sox generally don't and consequently are not good bunters.

    5 man rotation has been astonishingly resilient for decades.  Almost every MLB team carries 12 pitchers, so occasionally going with 6 starters shouldn't be a big deal.

    Disagree game was winnable with Peavy pitching the 6 th.  This was not Farrell's fault.  Happ, a lefty, meanwhile pitched 6 clean innings.  Game was won and lost by the starters.

    OP is nonsense because it ignores everything that went well, especially winning the WS one year after finishing dead last in the AL East.   As for the griping about Farrell's in game managing, that is more »

    Certainly not AL MVP.  But right now gets my vote for Sox MVP.

    Moonslav, what would you pay to keep Lester?  $152M for 7 years?  That's what the Yankees are paying Ellsbury.

    Let's not get too excited. Drew came back because Ben C couldn't acquire a bat, but did see a need for a better glove at SS, and Drew was very available but expensive. I wanted the bat but understood more »

    I didn't see this coming, but did have a smidgen of hope.  Betts not a good fit in the OF, plus he is really young and barely played AAA.
