About Me: Became a huge Sox fan after moving to Portland, Maine in 1970 and following the trade of my boyhood idol, Tommy Harper to the Red Sox. Tears of heartbreak turned to tears of joy. Go Sox!

    If it's large and long Sox management is trying to avoid, then getting Hamels makes little sense. He is owed: 15:$22.5M, 16:$22.5M, 17:$22.5M, 18:$22.5M, 19:$20M club option ($6M buyout) Basically, it more »

    I would have loved prospects with potential as well, I'm not saying I LOVED this deal. I guess I'm trying to make sense of it more than anything else. The Sox already have a wealth of talent, and tons more »

    I think what the Sox went with here was a 2 part strategy. They know they don't have many options to fix the offense in free agency, but there are better options to fix the top half of their rotation. more »

    It is not certain the inconsistent Ces and Craig will be an upgrade offensively, and if Ces is RF and Craig LF the D will suffer. Craig is no worse on D in LF than the Nava/Gomes platoon. Cespedes is more »

    It's kind of a Catch-22 with Cespedes. If he does great, he'll want a long term deal which we won't give him, and because his contract disallows a QO, we won't even get a comp pick when he leaves. If more »

    Joe Kelly might surprise some of you. Hembree will probably be a force in the pen sooner than some of us might expect. Escobar and Rodriguez will probably not help in 2015, but they both have a decent more »

    We still should have over $60M to spend this winter. I haven't crunched all the new numbers yet, but Craig's luxury tax cost only counts at $6.2M and Cespedes at $9M. I think that leaves us about $65M more »
