    Considering Reddick's age he had a good year and may very well have better years ahead of him.

    Going to this funeral would fall into the category of “The very least we can do”. I’m ashamed of these guys. more »

    Sorry Moon,
    I should have directed my response to Tom-uk, who was asking for the name of Red Sox players who had a big year at a young age and then dropped off thereafter.

    Stapleton sure did a slow fade. One really good season and downhill from there on.  I was unhappy when the Sox traded Cooper, he was one of my favorite players.

    Posted 05/18/2012 10:54:06 EDT

    Absolutely agree that the Sox can trade (for example) Crawford once he's healthy and playing reasonably well. Come the July trade deadline 10 + teams will be thinking about the post season and looking more »

  • Forum Post: What do you want from a catcher?

    Posted 05/17/2012 03:50:37 EDT

    If Salty is to be traded what is the anticipated return? Clearly if he is as bad a catcher as a number of you believe he is the return won't be of any great value. In all fairness both Salty and Lavar more »

  • Forum Post: So, who was your favorite player as a kid?

    Posted 05/12/2012 03:43:08 EDT

    Everything I had (bat, glove and little League uniform number) was the same as Ted Williams. Unfortunately the similarity ended there. Otherwise Frank Malzone, Rico and Tony C were my favorites. more »

    Posted 05/12/2012 01:39:46 EDT

    The return on Ortiz won't bring the Sox a front line starter. The Sox do need to unload high salaries but right now Papi is one of the few players on this team earning his salary. If the Sox are selle more »

  • Forum Post: It's never been "The Pitching"

    Posted 05/07/2012 01:31:50 EDT

    Trying to salvage this season by trading prospects for established players would be a mistake. The Sox need to trade veteran players and clear salary. This may have to wait until July, but a youth mov more »

    If the Sox wait until the July trade deadline trading veterans for prospects should be easier. Hopefully a number of the players mentioned above are healthy and playing well enough to have a trade val more »

    With Theo you take the good with the bad. I still think Theo should have taken Crawford with him when he moved to Chicago (my idea of significant compensation)

  • Forum Post: Buchholz as the closer???

    Posted 04/27/2012 02:19:27 EDT

    Is Buch really healthy? If he is, there's still the effects of finding his mechanics after being out so long last season. I'm guessing that he has to do a lot of stretching and warm up before he takes more »

    This can be called an organizational problem. Lots of $ spent and little to no return on the investment. The question now is can this team keep it's head above water until Matsuzaka, Hill, Crawford, E more »
