  • Forum Post: Are We All In Agreement that Drew Should Sit Tomorrow?

    Posted 10/17/2013 08:59:38 EDT

    I also agree that Bogaerts should be in there.  I posted on another article 2 days ago and got slammed for it.  Sorry, Drew is doing little of anything.  Yes, he got a hit Tuesday night (which went to more »

    Posted 06/21/2013 08:48:46 EDT

    Don't be surprised to see Paps back in a RS Uni before deadline.  Not saying it's the best choice, but its one of the more likely ones. He had his issues with blown saves too, so not really a for sure more »

    Posted 04/11/2013 08:31:35 EDT

    Sorry, Hanrahan was good in the 1st game he saved, ok in the next one, but not good in the last 2 he's pitched in.  I hope I'm wrong, but I see him having a really bad year and by the end of May, some more »

    In response to softlaw2's comment: Grienke would have been a great value and fit for the 2013 Red Sox. I  understand why so many on this Board wanted the Red Sox to acquire him via free agency. Maybe more »

    Also read that he had 2nd & 3rd opinions on his hip and they all agreed with 1st...  So it does sound like there are real issues there and he didn't have much leverage. Also read that it's similar to more »

  • Forum Post: will PEDRO be a first-balloter? will he get in BEFORE clemens and schill?

    Posted 01/10/2013 12:00:22 EST

    He should get in on the 1st year he's eligible.  Pedro was a great pitcher, the best there was when he was in his prime. As far as the other's, I expect it will be a bunch of years for Schilling (if h more »

    Posted 12/27/2012 03:21:38 EST

    This whole "talking to LaRoche" could also be a ploy to get Napoli to accept the language they are trying to put in for the injuries.  I would expect no other team is going to want to sign him for wha more »

    Posted 12/17/2012 12:55:25 EST

    I wouldn't be suprised if the Sox are lining up for a pitching trade..  They could use Iggy and Salty (and maybe Jacoby) as a package for a front line starter. By having the other pieces in place, the more »

    What Rosenthal didn't say is that 3.38 ERA is comprised of 2.25 from the National League and 5.09 from the American League....  So we should do well in Interleague with him... As far as where our majo more »
