    We only ever heard one side of this story, really, and how much of it is accurate?  There wasn't an explanation that was commensurate with this man's departure.  At no time did the Sox' brass address more »

    But they're willing to pay $10 million for a SS who can barely get off the interstate?

    I'm as surprised and excited as anyone about Cespedes, but please stop with the idea that Lester will return.  He's gone.  Only a handful of teams will give him the money he wants, and the Sox aren't more »

    So many problems with this ordeal. Sorry to rant,  but if it weren't for the class of Lester, this fiasco would've been a helluva lot worse.  FO is practically treating him the same way they did Manny more »

    Whole thing has the feel of rebuilding.  Getting over the frustration of losing Lester is hard enough without considering that they're getting little in the immediate future.  This must be phase one o more »

    Ortiz launched it, watched it, and bat flipped.  Good for him.  Now maybe Archer will talk to Price about not head hunting.  He also barked something into the dugout after the bat flip.

    Any trade that involves Lester right now would be half-a$$ed.  There is simply nothing out there worth dealing him for, considering most of what is available will amount to a rental at best.  Do not t more »

    In response to ADG's comment:

    He asked to be traded, but John Farrell has him in the lineup today. Funny.


    Probably his farewell game for the Sox, imo.  Or close to it.

    This would be one of the dumbest possible trade scenarios.  No offense, but no.  Not a smart plan.

    Trade them for what?  You all are jumping on this, and not one mention of any player or cash. Doubrant will not bring much value at all, and he probably wouldn't make a wc team's post season roster as more »

    Have to watch the Toronto announcers with my cable, and Buck Martinez claims that Holt has played every single inning of this season.

    Haven't checked, but that's freaking crazy if it's true.

    Because he's batting .300+ over the past 20 games.

    He was pretty much unhittable through 5 innings last night.  You saw it.  We all saw it.  Painting the corners with fastballs, using four pitches successfully, striking out 5 at that point.  He had a more »

    Just one guy talking, but imo Baltimore is not going to finish last in the division.  Yankees' pitching is thin, thin, thin right now. They're going to lose some ground soon. Rays will fade, but not b more »
