Forum Post: Game Thread 142: Red Sox vs Yankees

Put the shift on Soriano and load up the left side - then throw him on the outer half so he can punch the ball through the right side. Genius.

Appears to be the $202 million Verlander just got from the Tigers.

Just tweeted, "hearing rumblings of major news...more to come."
Could this involve the Sox?
Forum Post: Hanrahan deal done

So, some are questioning the acquisition of Hanrahan because he is questionable? Although dominant in 2011 and all of 2012 other than September, he is questionable? Yet, the Bailey was not? The cur more »

Tampa would be a better trade partner than the Yanks. There need for offense is GLARING, and they have a deeper pool of talent of which to deal. more »

I mentioned Pittsburgh as a good match before the July deadline, and I still believe it. They continue to play Garret Jones in RF, and he is awful defensively. They would help their team a ton by tr more »

In Response to Re: Can Beckett do what Pedro did?: The Red Sox have 4 hits. That won't beat AAA teams. The problem isn't the pitching staff. With Ortiz, the offense had a massive hole in the middle. W more »

Tonight's 4th inning was a prime example. Beckett was solid the first 1-2 times through the order, but he is not very good about adjusting throughout the game. I think this is his major problem - no more »
Posted 07/25/2012 09:17:11 EDT
Beckett seems to be at a point in his career that Pedro also hit. Beckett no longer ramps his fastball into the mid 90s - staying consistently 90-92. There are times it seems he gets too stubborn wi more »

Forum Post: Would the Nats do this?
Posted 07/10/2012 06:36:31 EDT
Send Jordan Zimmerman to the Sox for Ellsbury and Beckett? I am thinking the Sox could pull a prospect or two as well, but I don't know. The Nats are looking to shore up their CF of the future, and more »

Posted 07/08/2012 10:19:38 EDT
It is clear that the current makeup of this team isn't going to turn it around this year. A healthy Ellsbury, Crawford and Pedey will help, but in reality the offense can only go so far. The current more »

Tough to say the Sox should pull the trigger without anyone knowing what the return would be. However, I think Aviles is a great insurance policy. If the Sox get decent pitching in return (bullpen o more »

Aviles could give the Sox as much or more than what the Sox got at SS during the WS years. The guy is very valuable because he can play so many positions, and because of that he has been labeled a "u more »

So, would Detroit do a Johnny Peralta/Doug Fister for Youk and Lars? Youk would give them a good, everyday 3B and Lars would allow them to use Cabrera more at the DH spot. I would think right now wo more »

What would be the risk? A minor league deal with an invitation to big league camp? Big gamble. I think it would be worth the risk. If the Sox signed him now they could get him in and see what the more »
