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.

Why do people act like the Sox are spending their money?
Posted 09/27/2014 11:22:53 EDT
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.

"I'm a journalist, it's my job to report the news." No, you aren't a journalist. You are a sports writer, and in case you have not noticed it's your job to try and help the team. That's what sports wr more »

Another day, another Boston sports writer trying to harm the team by promoting controversy and bad feelings. No other team in sports has to put up with this stuff. And it's day in and day out. more »

The Boston sport's writers really hate Lester don't they.

[/QUOTE]I blame Drew for climate change, also.[/QUOTE]I don't blame Drew. And I like Cherrington. I just thought that was a bad move.
Posted 09/15/2014 11:15:20 EDT
I have to say the single worst move made this year was signing Drew. It came right as the team seemed to be clicking and Boagerts was on fire stringing together multiple hit games. It was a vote of n more »

I've got it in my head that Bogaerts can play SS and that he's been better than I expected. What I wonder is if Betts can play 3B. I assume he can, because he's an infielder, has a strong arm, and ex more »

Pedroia will be fine. The Sox just need to see to it he get's completely healthy and then stop allowing him to try to play through injuries. I see no reason the Sox can't resign Lester and walk away more »
Posted 09/03/2014 10:35:55 EDT
This is a complicated question. I tend to think the primary problem with Pedroia is his toughness which leads to him trying to play through injuries. I'm half way inclined to think the Sox should shut more »

In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment:
If Mookie Betts gets regular playing time the rest of the year I'm betting on him leading Portland, Pawtucket, and Boston in stolen bases.

In response to moonslav59's comment: No. I'd give him one last chance to stick with the big club next year, but only after he shows something at AAA. Yeah 1 Nay 1 Sox4ever I assume he has almost no va more »

My standing opinion is not to let guys that have shown they can play here go. If a guy can play in Boston, he can play in the World Series. Boston is not an easy place to play. Despite three rings in more »

Yankees at -31 in run differential. Yankees, Toronto and Baltimore have shaky pitching. Looks like it's going to come down to the Rays and the Sox. Okay, I'm half kidding, but I don't think it's cr more »
