    my best to John and thank you to Tito.

    The best to John, get well soon.

    The time was right.

    Larry is President and CEO and if we accept John Henry's statement "is in charge of the Boston Red Sox" He at the very least has to agree with trades and free agency signings.

    John and ben do share in the responsibility for the teams poor showing, but lets not forget Larry . His finger prints are all over many of these poor moves.

    Tony was the best candidate available last year, nothing has changed.

    Considering Reddick's age he had a good year and may very well have better years ahead of him.

    Nix, if I could direct you to the title of this thread. Note that the Subject is Red Sox Managerial Candidates. I know you have a problem with reading comprehension, so please take your time rereading more »

    In response to southpaw777's comment: Softy didnt like my suggestion of Torii Hunter. Now hes on his "List". I thought a 1yr with a 2nd option at 8mm per would be fair. Or even a 2yr at a good price. more »

    What this team needs is a losing manager, John Farrell! If that's the best the Sox can do we are in real trouble. more »

    Going to this funeral would fall into the category of “The very least we can do”. I’m ashamed of these guys. more »

    Sorry Moon,
    I should have directed my response to Tom-uk, who was asking for the name of Red Sox players who had a big year at a young age and then dropped off thereafter.

    Stapleton sure did a slow fade. One really good season and downhill from there on.  I was unhappy when the Sox traded Cooper, he was one of my favorite players.

    Moon, The only young player who was a one year wonder I can think of was Lou Clinton (played for the Sox in the early 60's) After bouncing back and forth between the minors and the Sox for a couple of more »

    Just passing on what I've read (White Sox/Blue Jays media) The Blue Jays made a run at acquiring Gavin Floyd a while back. Williams (CWS) was asking for Travis D’Arnaud (Blue Jays #1 Prospect a Catche more »

    Absolutely agree that the Sox can trade (for example) Crawford once he's healthy and playing reasonably well. Come the July trade deadline 10 + teams will be thinking about the post season and looking more »

    If Salty is to be traded what is the anticipated return? Clearly if he is as bad a catcher as a number of you believe he is the return won't be of any great value. In all fairness both Salty and Lavar more »

    Everything I had (bat, glove and little League uniform number) was the same as Ted Williams. Unfortunately the similarity ended there. Otherwise Frank Malzone, Rico and Tony C were my favorites. more »

    The return on Ortiz won't bring the Sox a front line starter. The Sox do need to unload high salaries but right now Papi is one of the few players on this team earning his salary. If the Sox are selle more »

    Trying to salvage this season by trading prospects for established players would be a mistake. The Sox need to trade veteran players and clear salary. This may have to wait until July, but a youth mov more »

  • Posted 05/05/2012 08:54:33 EDT

    If the Sox wait until the July trade deadline trading veterans for prospects should be easier. Hopefully a number of the players mentioned above are healthy and playing well enough to have a trade val more »

    Small sample has Agon hitting like my little brother and Ortiz Hitting like the next Ted Williams. Agon will come around given time and David will have a great year as well. (sorry no 400+ average tho more »

    With Theo you take the good with the bad. I still think Theo should have taken Crawford with him when he moved to Chicago (my idea of significant compensation)

    Is Buch really healthy? If he is, there's still the effects of finding his mechanics after being out so long last season. I'm guessing that he has to do a lot of stretching and warm up before he takes more »
