MLB channel says Cubs are making last-minute grab at David Ross, trying to steal Lester's favorite catcher to cement their position.

Knowing that we still need two top-level SP's, it's nice to have so many quality players to use as trade bait. Ironically, it could also weaken our position bargaining against certain teams. Any poten more »

If he does play left this should be very interesting to watch. I wonder how his arm strength is. Playing LF in Fenway is obviously a lot different than anywhere else. Gotta learn to play the wall firs more »

In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: Converting Taz into a starter isn't the worst ideal in the world but it will never happen, not in 2015 at least. He's got good stuff, but he doesn't have TOTR more »

Why was Lester still pitching in the 8th,closing in on 100 pitches? It's not like he had a shutout going. Why not bring in a fresh arm when it was 7-3 and they had all the momentum? Felt like Grady Li more »

I think the job is his simply because of his defensive prowess. Hopefully the hitting will come. With so many other question marks and holes to fill the last thing we need is to worry about is trying more »

Sox are in danger of not breaking the 70-wins barrier for only the 5th time in the last 50 years. The frustration is magnified because it would be twice in 3 years. After a decade of dominance. Serio more »

Without his .286 OBP we're at least 3 games further out already.

WAR! What is it good for?!

WAR is hell.

Why not try moving Clay to the pen? He could be an effective middle reliever. Less innings, less wear and tear, less pressure. Doesn't seem like he would bring much trade value, so why not try it?

We always hear about how great our farm system is and about all the great prospects that are ready to move up soon, but it seems like it's been a long while since we've produced a superstar like Pedey more »

Beltre at 3B, plus a bona fide ace, and we're back in business!

HR's are important, but what's more important is when they happen. The argument of HR's vs. OPB only takes into account overall scoring, but scoring isn't the main thing- winning is. The HR can win a more »

Moon nails it, as usual. This team needs proven performers, and has the money and prospects to get them. Serious pitching help is top priority.
Posted 08/06/2014 11:33:38 EDT
Looks like we may have a new ace.
Posted 08/04/2014 11:42:55 EDT
If he's proven he can't cut it as a starter, and has little or no trade value, what about moving him to relief? Maybe his fragile mentality would benefit from not having a starter's pressure, and his more »

I don't think last year was a fluke, it was more like a perfect convergence of cosmic forces. They were the best team all year long- best offense, best record, biggest run differential- and led the al more »

I guess we'll find out soon enough how big a poison he really was, but 2 walk-offs in a row as soon as he's gone could be an indication. Finish the first half strong, regroup at the AS break, maybe more »

If the rest of our offense were hitting like they did last year then JBJ's struggles so far wouldn't hurt as much and there might be more patience with the youngster. But we knew we needed all the kid more »
