    Ya want King Felix?  Wait for free agency.  Seattle would want too much talent now.  Middlebrooks is the 3rd baseman of the future...we need Bard for 60 games, not the 75 he was used in this year....w more »

    Posted 04/23/2011 04:49:23 EDT

    When should Sox send Salty to the minors?  2 weeks ago, but I'll settle for today!  He is not major league, (never mind Red Sox) talent.  Yipes!  Still bounces balls to 2nd, or over throws.  Texas & A more »

    Salty has got to go.  For those saying wait 4 more weeks, do you realize the potential losses the sox could sustain in that time.  He's not ready, never was ready (ask Texas & Atlanta) and never will more »

    Been some rumors that the sox would like to reacquire Masterson... Think this is a valid rumor?   If so, what do you think Cleveland would want in return.  I believe no player on the Cleveland roster more »
