Forum Post: Jake Peavy...
Posted 03/15/2009 04:00:43 EDT
Hey Hf, When you think about it 15.7 mil isn't that bad for quality pitcher. Peavy could use a change, I'm sure it's hard to sustain any kind of confidence level when you come to the mound each inning more »

Forum Post: Reddick making a point?
Posted 03/15/2009 01:45:38 EDT
Jacoby doesn't look like he has changed much at the plate but hopefully that changes when the season starts. I still see Reddick giving Ellsbury some competition in CF if Jacoby struggles. Kalish is a more »

[Quote]Wake: He is this year what he is every year. Great when his knuckler works, atrocious when it does not. In the Friday game against the Yanks it looked like he was pitching batting practice. He more »

Even better, I just hope both he and Jacoby continue to mature. The more prospects on our starting team is fine with me. Except at the catchers position where most of us agree a trade is necessary. Ca more »

Peavy is a much better pitcher than you give him credit for and he would help our rotation in a huge way. You can't pitch well every day, try putting Peavy on a team like the Sox where he knows there more »
Posted 03/15/2009 07:20:48 EDT
Keeping a pitcher like Wake in the starting rotation usually works out fine, as long as we don't keep using him in the PS. Both Wake and Tek are only here now because of their years of service and pri more »

It's a relatively short recovery time after surgery so hopefully he can pick up where he left off. Lugo can still help our lineup if he can stay healthy and focused. more »

Posted 03/15/2009 06:01:26 EDT
That's one of the reasons I don't agree with playing in the WBC. Dustin wouldn't be going full speed just yet in ST and may have prevented the injury. I understand why players want to play and represe more »

If Theo has a weakness it seems to be his loyalty towards aging veterans. There was no doubt in my mind Tek can't throw, run or hit anymore. Hopefully he can find a comfort zone, or Bard has a good ye more »

It's only ST but Reddick appears to have a bright future ahead of him if he continues to develop his skills. Jacoby may have a bit more competition in the future, especially being a Boras client who I more »
Forum Post: Theo: what next?
Posted 03/14/2009 07:41:26 EDT
Catching is the position that would solidify our team. Everyone including Theo knows this but refuses to trade a couple prospects. I will predict the Yankees trade for a top young catcher like Salty b more »

With Escobar ready to take over at SS I'm sure a little pitching would persuade the Brewers to move Hardy. JJ could definitely add a bit more pop to our lineup. more »
