    As always, a great discussion here. I feel like a player learning a new position should be addressed in the Minors as much as possible.  If there's, say, a 30-40% chance Betts could move to SS in the more »

    Remembering last year about this time, we were all hoping the Starters went at least 5 Innings. Lester 7, Lackey 6, both keeping the O's to 2 runs a game... I'm liking that.  How long before we see Si more »

    I think we'll have Papi for another two years, and that's when Stanton is a FA. I was more for a trade for Stanton last year when it would've made more sense, but the team was holding it's own, Stanto more »

    This move, although somewhat predictable, I like. The ole Low Risk, High Reward Mantra. Also helps coming off a WS win. If it works we have a lead-off hitter again(!)     :)

    But, of course, then there's John Lackey. With the TJ Surgery duly noted, my man lost 20-30 lbs, looked like he's in the best shape of his life, and pitched like It. I think it definetly helped him, b more »

    Doesn't seem like the Sox need to do much of anything right now. Unless a team(s) contact them, not the other way around.  Infield? Check Bullpen? Check Outfield? Check Rotation? Check Chemistry? Chec more »

    Wow, the Yanks continue being the Yanks. I wouldn't have it anyother way either. Lol How's AJ at throwing out baserunners? Did Ells even steal a base in the WS? If he did, it wasn't memorable.  Stick more »

    With McCann gone to the Yanks for $17M a yr, looks like Salty is departing the FA on-Deck circle. 2 yrs/$20M would be great. Hope it's atleast close to that. I don't see him getting $14 a yrfrom the R more »
