When he was "really" young? Never heard that. Does that also mean he is dumed there forever? He doesn't have a position because Pedey is at 2b and Bogaerts is so highly though of (and understandabl more »

Don't get me wrong, I would love to see the Sox be able to keep both of these guys. But, if they had to trade one (which seems to be the indication), why does Bogaerts always seem to be the better on more »

If it is such a fixed sport, why bother to follow it? For a real response: there is a BIG difference between going to the WS and winning the WS. Completely different years they had following WS wins more »

Haven't been around in awhile, so apologies if this has been addressed (I am not about to ready the entire thread). I have for the longest time felt that this question is one of the most ridiculous th more »

Very true, very smart.
It is still their way of doing things. Signing free agents and putting little attention to drafting players.
Posted 12/13/2013 01:25:45 EST
Well, they did say that the Sox aren't finished yet, so lets see what else they are going to do. But I agree 100% that they need to do something with the OF, which they probably will. I think they n more »

Everybody is trying to figure how low the Yankees first draft pick is going to be. Is this really a surprise to anyone? Isn't this the "Yankee way" for the past 15 years or so? Signing high price more »

If Stanton is not available at all, well then fine. I guess a lot of the other posters out there also have the mindset of "if" he was available. However, ...... If Doubront was the pitcher, then fin more »

WOW! If 4 good prospects (Bradley Jr, Middlebooks, Vasquez or Swihart, and say DeLaRosa, Webster or Barnes) plus a solid guy in Nava wouldn't get it done, then why is he even talked about? I would more »

Assuming the Sox sign one of the OF'ers that have been mentioned (Kemp, Either, Shoo, or Granderson), as well as Drew, I think all of these guys are expendable. But, would it be enough? JBJ, Middleb more »

Granted, he been absolutely awesome, dominating, etc. Better than I thought he would be. But, shocked as much as everyone else seems to be? Not really. Just look at least years numbers in a hitter more »

I mean "wouldn't" think that Lackey is as sure of a bounce back as the other guys.
Posted 01/26/2013 08:08:54 EST
- I can't think of a single reason why not to expect Lester from bouncing back. I would actually lean on saying that it is a sure thing. - Health is the only thing that will keep Buch from bouncing more »

Train -you can't predict on who is going to get hurt in the future and who isn't. Very poor comment.
I rather have Sweeney than Nava though.
Posted 01/18/2013 04:10:51 EST
Sorry Moon. Never really learned how to copy and paste a comment from a different poster to show the difference in "boldness" indicating the comment from poster to another.

That's the gamble. If he does much better this year, we'll wish we had locked him up at a reasonable rate this winter. He improved immensely on defense and handling the staff last summer. He's at a more »

You still have to have both the talent and the mentality. Spending time with someone has nothing to do with that
I could spend 10years with them and still not be able to throw like they do.
Posted 01/12/2013 01:17:46 EST
Nice post slomag. I don't buy the umps giving Lester a break because of his cancer. "MAYBE" you have some warrant if it was just 1 year. But, Lester pitched very good for 4 years. I am sure that the more »
Posted 01/12/2013 10:55:40 EST
I also have high hopes for Ruby. I also have advocated on another thread how I feel Lester is going to bounce back and do well too. I feel that Buch has "the stuff" to be the ace and I also hear m more »

During Lester's 4 good years he had Lugo, Jed Lowrie (when healthy), Nick Green, and Scutaro. None of these guys were anything to write home about defensively. Yet Lester still did very good. If Les more »

Although it may have some factor, you don't really base a pitchers ERA and performance on the SS. A pitcher has to pitch, and if he does, his stats will be good regardless of who the SS is. I am not more »

How many years before he is eligible? I think he will definitely be a first timer. He was really in a class of his own in both leagues. His candid personality doesn't hurt either.

If he is given a fair chance, I like Morales a whole lot more than Doubrant. Of the guys you mentioned that we can obtain, I wouldn't trade a package for any of them. Maybe straight up one for one. more »
Posted 01/10/2013 08:49:57 EST
Tom - yes, at the moment. But Lester is too proven over a few years now and Buch has too much talent (and some proof as well) for them to pitch like they did last year. With all of the chaos that wen more »
