Great points Hill. I like Xander and think he might be a decent MLB player one day. But his defense will always be somewhat limited, and his offense is a work in progress possibly several years away. more »

I'm simply pointing out that the goal here is NOT the same as the small market clubs have: to somehow, miraculously, stumble into the playoffs where "anything can happen." That's nice-for them! Our LA more »

Excellent points all Danny. The Beltre decision may be one of the worst sins of omission in recent memory. Stellar defense and he hit like a maniac for us-what's not to like?? I also agree with Hfxsox more »

If we end up using rookies this season, it will be because the new starters have failed. This would mean our team is in trouble and unlikely to have a shot at a ring...which is exactly why I've been h more »

Good point, but you are looking at this with a logical mind focused on the best way to win this season. But there is also another factor here to consider: GREED. If ticket sales are truly back and sea more »

Ok my latest thoughts on this subject are as follows: We've built our starting staff partly around the notion that we have ground ball pitchers in a low ball era. It's not an entirely correct position more »

Lose all draft picks for 2015?! Good lord man! Belichick could probably run onto the field and kill an opposing player, and get less penalty than that. The NFL penalty structure is directly related to more »

Howdy Zac. I agree that the new market prices for these players is rediculous. But it is what it is, and as the LARGE market club that we are we just have to behave accordingly. I agree Hamels existin more »
Posted 01/19/2015 05:21:12 EST
It's my contention that the Red Sox need a TOR addition to truly contend this season. We can't get a ring with what we have, IMO. That being said, I have never espoused a "Hamels or bust" view. I'd MU more »

Correct as usual Zacster. Stasis is the default position for us all, but it's action that garners risk or reward. The fact that Philly has made so many mistakes in recent years has made Amaro an absol more »

I'm betting that Shields will sign 1st, for probably 5 yrs and close to $125 million. Then there will be a veritable stampede for Scherzer, and he'll get his 7 yr $180ish million. The Red Sox will cho more »

Some excellent points Notin, though I think you lost me on the WHIP thing. While a high WHIP potentially/likely results in high ERA, it is a completely separate stat unto itself. I know you of course more »
