    In response to mbeaulieu07's comment: TE Tim Wright went for 54-571-5 last year in his first season in the NFL... not bad.  He's also a Rutgers kid, ha.                His measurables are very close t more »

    Winning the WS, the LT financial flexibility and losing the negative energy created by Beckett and Crawford was well worth whatever loss the Sox had. Wasn't the obviously artificially created crowd no more »

    He was compared to Rajai Davis at a certain age.  Others were, a younger Victorino, Gardner, Puig and Alexei Ramirez.  That's quite a range.  We will see soon enough because after getting his legs bac more »

    Dice-k's  first two years were pretty decent.

    The biggest thing I've learned about Castillo is he's a mystery who's somehow major league ready.  ESPN has a comp with McCutcheon and Puig.  Others compare him to above he has less plat more »

    The Sox won't offer a 6 deal to a 30 y/o pitcher because they are concerned with his possible degradation over the last few years of the contract.  But they should consider offering a shorter term dea more »

    If any team would go that little extra, I think it's the Sox.  They have the need (both on and off field) similar to when they signed Dice-K and plenty of $.  It's not like Castillo or his agent would more »

    Sure is room for Mookie and Castillo. Why can't they stop messing with the young player, and play them in their positions?  Why screw with Betts and 'Xander? Maybe they are lulled into the 'success' t more »

    Looks like they are all-in.  

    Bradley may very well  end up as part of a deal to land a pitcher.

    Comparable isn't the same.   His post season stats aren't as good, neither is his record vs AL teams. If they trade for Hamels I'm sure he'll be good, but don't expect he's the same guy that Lester ha more »

    If they sign Lester and Shields....they'd have signed 2 pitchers over the age of 30 in l-t deals.  Lester makes way more sense than Shields on any level.  He's younger, has pitched better, pitched bet more »

    Nava is probably gone soon, but I trust him getting in the lineup ahead of the Achy Breaky twins.   I think that lineup has plenty of pop.  Some v good OB guys in front.  Cespedes won't be a high OBP more »

    Masterson is one thing and it depends on terms, but Shields? Does it make any more sense to sign a 33 y/o for 3 years than a 30 y/o for 6?
