All this "the coaches hate Cespedes" thing is pretty crazy huh. From the NY Post no less.
There is a lot of smoke around him though. For some reason.

One would think with all the talent Webster and RDLR have that one of the 2 would end up being a stud, but how long will we have to wait? Did LA give up on them for a reason, or were they truly valued more »

Where is the "front Burner" section? You guys must work for free because if you are being paid you should be fired immediately.
Forum Post: Is anyone on this team worth more than Mookie?
Posted 10/24/2014 01:55:48 EDT
Mookie costs $500,000 and he has more pop, a better OPS and plus defense also, with the added ability to wreck true havoc on the bases. Pedroia costs $12.5 mil. As much as I like Pedroia, even if they more »

Farrel "chuckles" at the thought of the FO trading Cespedes. How is that for winter positioning!

Most relievers want to be starters. They have a regular scedule and make 3-4 times as much money. I like Tazawa and a lot of aspects of his game but there is a reason why they moved him to the pen. Th more »
Posted 10/21/2014 06:08:42 EDT
Tazawa was a starter earlier in his career and had mediocre potential. He may be better than Ranaudo and Workman but probably not as good as Owens, Rodriguesz and I would add Johnson and Barnes potent more »

I think one could make a pretty strong case for Miller at $ 8 mil a year and 4 years. He was lights out for a long time there and has been real good for 2 years now. I would have a little problem with more »

Revenue sharing this year might be $50 mil even.

I think Cespedes comes in way under Sandoval's cost.

1 or 2 of these guys has a shot at a rotation spot with the Sox but the Redsox are probably going to use their money and sign 2 proven starters. The situation is not as bleak as it appears. And we hav more »

People are saying Sandoval might get 5 years and $100 mil. I wonder who would be the better value for us long term. Sandoval or Cespedes.
Posted 10/19/2014 01:14:09 EDT
So far over 3 years in mlb, Cespedes has had a fangraphs valuation of $14.27 per year. In the prime years of his career. 14.27 x 4 years = $57.08 mil. I'm offering $64 mil. I grant that it could well more »
Posted 10/18/2014 11:49:07 EDT
I see a whole lot of people say Cespedes is essentially not that good but we did slot him #4 in the lineup. I think he's worth $16 mil a year. Probably even $17 mil or more to some team but to me I'd more »
Posted 10/18/2014 04:02:18 EDT
We can't trade Victorino or Craig for anything except a salary dump, unless we pay almost all their salary anyway. So there you have that. Neither of those guys are going anywhere. So that is 2 slots more »

Man, if Jidge is beating that dead horse with me I must be on to something! As I've said over and over and over, I DON'T THINK THE SOX GO WITH BETTS AT THIRD. I do think they have him slotted with Cas more »
Posted 10/18/2014 12:35:33 EDT
I really think Mookie could do it if needed. Or Cechinni. I'd rather build value from within in 2015, and continue to develop our core.
Posted 10/18/2014 12:34:17 EDT
As I've said several times now, I do agree that the Sox are probably going with an external solution at 3rd but when I read Farrel's comments I see a guy taking about this year for sure, and maybe bey more »

OK, I looked it up (Farrell's comments about Mookie at 3rd): http://fullcount.weei.com/sports/boston/baseball/red-sox/2014/09/24/john-farrell-says-mookie-betts-will-not-be-asked-to-play-shortstop-or-t more »
Posted 10/16/2014 10:49:25 EDT
It sure is tempting to slot Sandoval in at 3rd and bat him 6th or so, helping the lineup score runs a lot. Giving some semblance of Left/Right balence in the lineup. But he may well cost over 5 years more »
