    Hitting a baseball has a larger mental component than most other sports skills. Guys can run into mental blocks which can be difficult to shake.  I think Bradley lost all confidence and was trying so more »

    Well, Sure Goodell should be fired. More imortantly Dan Shaughnessy should be fired, but before that he should be tarred and feathered and run out of town.

    I've been a big booster of JBJr. for a long time and have never lost the feeling that he would begin to hit. Hugh and others have pointed out he was rushed. His work ethic told me he would get through more »

    In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: I thought Hanley looked good out there for a guy who is so new to the position.  We are talking about moving a SS/3B to left field and not moving a left field more »

    It's entertaing to imagine the gnashing of teeth and garment rending  which would be going on if the Sox had resigned Lester only to see him knocked out on day one;  and traded for Hamels  only to see more »

    Coyle is going to be the utility (extra) infielder. People need to forget about Brock Holt. He seems like a great guy, he's got a great name, he's good looking, and he's one of the few people who perf more »

    I mean Bird was the coach the whole time he was in Boston, but he wasn't officially the coach.

    Bradley's trade value is too low to even think about trading him. I think they should keep him and see if he figures things out. If he does then they have the player they hoped they had, and if not he more »

    Ideally it will just go on and on, because the longer it goes on the more embarrassing it becomes for everyone except for  the Patriots and their fans.

    I  always liked him. Now I have zero respect for him and nothing could ever bring that back.

    If money is any issue at all to the Red Sox, then if they are going to spend huge money on free agents it becomes imperative to keep their best young players.  If money means nothing then they should more »

    After the Sox sign Lester the first thing they should do is offer the exact same amount to Scherzer. Not to say they should go any higher, but just to set that as the baseline.

    I wouldn't trade Bogaerts for the entire Mets' roster and their top ten farm prospects.

    The luxury tax is a self-imposed barrier. If a team is willing to pay it, it means nothing. For the past ten years the Yankees have carried a ghost player who makes on average over twenty million doll more »

    BTW. I think it would be great if MLB had a hard cap. They don't.  THere is a bunch of TV money coming in soon. It's stupid to not get ahead of the curve.  Is the money ridiculous/obscene?  Yes.  Who more »

    Shields I would not want for a high price. 
    If it appeared the market for him was soft I would sit back and try to sneak in.

    I think the key is keeping top  prospects and signing free agents.  For example. I have no issue with what ever they would end up paying Lester or Scherzer.  I absolutely hate the idea of the Hamels t more »

    It's wise for the Sox to drive the market by paying high salaries because by being first in line they elevate the market price for other teams and other free agents.  Let's say they have overpayed. We more »

    When the Sox start spendfing my money to sign players I'll start paying attention. There is no hard cap. I don't pay the luxury tax either, so I don't care.

    I don't think there is any doubt Webster has the biggest up-side. He is also the least experiened as a pitcher. 
    IF he solves his command issues he could be tremendous.
