    Posted 04/13/2012 06:32:31 EDT

    Why settle for local homers like Rooke, Zo and Tanguay? Why not do a national search and allow the best man to get the job? I have heard many, many other city announcing teams in multiple sports, and more »

    Whoa, whoa, whoa! Dan, from one side of your mouth you mention Henry's love of Carmine, yet from the other side you totally ignore the fact that all metrics point to Paplbon not having much of an impa more »

    Wht are the Yankees mentioned in tandem with Ortiz/contract? If Cashman is the GM, there is no interest. Montero is the next Yankee DH. Yankees will focus on resigning CC, adding 2 additional starting more »

    Wasn't the stadium sold out wearing Manny wigs just a short time ago? Unless McCourt was/is making the day to day player decisions, I blame the attendance issues on the teams dismal play, and the dism more »

    1)Lets put to rest the negatives on Reyes. He is GREAT in the club house, and very hard working. 2)No trade with out signing a contract 3)I am thinking the Mets might say yes to Iglesias for Reyes str more »

    Please name me 2 teams that will pay Papi more than 1 year at $8M at 36 years of age? No need to repeat the above posting stating the Yankees with Arod/Jeter/Montero dh issues. One needs to only look more »

    Kraft, Jones, Johnson and the other "have" owners were able to convince the "have not" owners the last deal was a good one. Well, for the "have nots", it wasn't. What Kraft is able to compromise and a more »

    I don't think you can paint the picture on Francona with such a broad stroke. Francona is a great manager of a talented veteran team that is expected to win, and when personalties need to be massaged, more »

    I am amazed at how often all the pitchers have been shaking off...seems Buch is doing it most often, but all of the pitchers are doing it more than I ever recall. more »

    I know it is a year later, but I watched last years outfield of Nava, McD and Kalish and saw a AAA outfield. Sure, they might have progressed,but this team is built for the WS and needs a 4th OF that more »

    "Trade him"?? "Don't need him"?? Huh??? Have you been watching any of the games? The key to success this season has been a total team effort. That means almost 60 players getting playing time this yea more »

    C Pena is not a good comp to Ortiz. Pena plays at a GG standard at 1B and Ortiz is a complete liability in the field. I still don't get the side of the discussion that Ortiz is actually worth the mone more »

    Pete, I think that it is pretty well known at this point that Sox management did not want to resign Papi for that number, but they were over ruled by Sox ownership. It is a gift for time well served, more »

    No need to additionally weigh in on roids...I have a bigger issue with "silly stat shut ins"... This is more ridiculous than any roid conversation. We finally have some pretty good statistical analysi more »

    Posted 12/14/2010 07:45:04 EST

    I just dont see these relief pitchers available as worth the money needed to sign them. To my eye, Fuentes is done. Similiar to Downs at this age, he has lost his velo, and must be pin point perfect t more »

    I fail to understand why anyone would think a wasged up B Fuentes is an absolute upgrade over Oki or MDC? The pen is a crapshoot, and any given year anyone can be up or down. To spend on the pen fooli more »

    Every discussion has to start with his age. He turned 23 in August, so most organizations still have highly regarded prospects older than he is, and yet, he’s already accumulated +7.7 WAR in what am more »

    Red Sox13 MLB Let me clarify. I did not say that Victor will not be a catcher in 3-4 years. I said the Sox do not see him as a catcher is years 2,3,4,5 of his next contract. That means after this year more »

    if the Sox were questioning giving Ortiz $12.5 to be DH, and wouldn't extend him past this year, and if the Sox feel Victor w/b a dh for 4 of the next 5 years, why would they pay him $14-$16.. does an more »
