    Posted 12/09/2014 05:48:22 EST

    If money is any issue at all to the Red Sox, then if they are going to spend huge money on free agents it becomes imperative to keep their best young players.  If money means nothing then they should more »

    After the Sox sign Lester the first thing they should do is offer the exact same amount to Scherzer. Not to say they should go any higher, but just to set that as the baseline.

    I wouldn't trade Bogaerts for the entire Mets' roster and their top ten farm prospects.

    The luxury tax is a self-imposed barrier. If a team is willing to pay it, it means nothing. For the past ten years the Yankees have carried a ghost player who makes on average over twenty million doll more »

    BTW. I think it would be great if MLB had a hard cap. They don't.  THere is a bunch of TV money coming in soon. It's stupid to not get ahead of the curve.  Is the money ridiculous/obscene?  Yes.  Who more »

    I think the key is keeping top  prospects and signing free agents.  For example. I have no issue with what ever they would end up paying Lester or Scherzer.  I absolutely hate the idea of the Hamels t more »

    It's wise for the Sox to drive the market by paying high salaries because by being first in line they elevate the market price for other teams and other free agents.  Let's say they have overpayed. We more »

    When the Sox start spendfing my money to sign players I'll start paying attention. There is no hard cap. I don't pay the luxury tax either, so I don't care.

  • Forum Post: Webster > De La Rosa and Ranaudo

    Posted 09/27/2014 11:22:53 EDT

    I don't think there is any doubt Webster has the biggest up-side. He is also the least experiened as a pitcher. 
    IF he solves his command issues he could be tremendous.

    I don't blame Drew. And I like Cherrington. I just thought that was a bad move.

    I have to say the single worst move made this year was signing Drew. It came right as the team seemed to be clicking and Boagerts was on fire stringing together multiple hit games.  It was a vote of n more »

    I've got it in my head that Bogaerts can play SS and that he's been better than I expected.  What I wonder is if Betts can play 3B. I assume he can, because he's an infielder, has a strong arm, and ex more »

    Posted 09/13/2014 12:07:30 EDT

    Pedroia will be fine. The Sox just need to see to it he get's completely healthy and then stop allowing him to try to play through injuries.  I see no reason the Sox can't resign Lester and walk away more »

    If Mookie Betts gets regular playing time the rest of the year I'm betting on him leading Portland, Pawtucket, and Boston in stolen bases. 



    A good bet.
