Lester is playing the game to the hilt. How many more teams will he meet with next week? Meanwhile, Sox and Cubs are tripping overthemselves to raise their bids, looking pretty stupid in the process. more »

You da man! :) Great call, Moon.

Napoli won't be batting 4th or 5th anymore... that is one positive.

In response to moonslav59's comment: Give Lester what he wants and get it over with. Make all the other teams go into reaction mode for once. Figure out the budget later through trades as teams scramb more »

Francisco and Brentz. Lava has more value as an intriguing/sweetener throw-in with a trade package than has Brentz. Lava can be a major leaguer, Brentz is a minor leaguer.
Posted 11/24/2014 11:06:06 EST
I guess I favor choice C. Anyway, trade any combination of those four guys, Vic Naps Ces Craig, and whatever minor league leaguer is needed (except Owens) for a good starter and then sign Lester with more »

It's a head-scratcher alright. Don't want Han-Ram, he's often hurt and gives off bad vibes.

This thread can be close since the Red Sox reportly signed Hanley. DUN DUN DUN

We're in a pitcher's advantage mode lately, and pitchers numbers are generally better, and hitters numbers are generally not as good. Lester had his best season statistically. We all know what Lester more »

We can stop talking about Russell Martin and Jason Heyward too.
Posted 11/12/2014 03:19:12 EST
Look at Pedey's numbers last season. Right, he played hurt again. Anyway, you'll see a similar drop in recent seasons all across the board in baseball concerning numbers on offense, with exceptions of more »

Those numbers don't sound so good, but they're better than they used to mean. Hitting is in steep decline across the board. Something like .260 is what .285 was 10 years ago, and 14 homers was probabl more »

Good fielder, good hitter, peaks in postseason, can evolve to 1B/DH, 6 years to age 34, sign the dude.
Posted 11/06/2014 12:02:34 EST
Keep Nava as platoon outfielder and Holt as utility man, both inexpensive yet plus players.
Posted 10/31/2014 11:49:49 EDT
I'd go Lester and Scherzer and wing it at 3b.

Looking forward to the World Series Red Sox v. the Cubs, lots of storylines!

But what about the fun factor? The stolen base attempt is one of the exciting plays in baseball. And what about the intagibility factor? The stolen base attempt, if successful, rattles the opposition more »

I sort of like the Heyward idea. Swihart for Jaso? What a bad idea! No way! Bring up Swihart and he and Vaz can compete for playing time. Each can play half the time that first year anyway. We can t more »
