    My understanding is that revenue sharing is gone for Boston after 2016. Gone baby gone. Maybe I'm wrong but why have a big market team rule if it has no consequences?

    Who knows. Maybe the luxury tax is no longer such a big issue. They can't get revenue sharing next year anyway as a big market team. They may blow right past the tax guidleines every year from now on. more »

    I have no problem sitting tight but we do have the talent the Phillies probably would want. I don't think they get what they want back in a trade for Hamel but some team will lose a #1 and be more wil more »

    As I've been saying for years, the Redsox are far more profitable than most people think. They own a very high percentage of NESN and that is ideally a global property for them someday, with Liverpool more »

    We keep seeing Phillies scouts at the Redsox minor league games and now at spring training. It just makes sense for the Phillies to be looking at our players, and vice versa. To me, even more sense fo more »

    I don't see how anyone wouldn't at least consider Hanram to be a real decent sub at 3rd and if for some reason Panda slides to first next year it sure would be convenient to slot Hamram at 3rd as the more »

    Hanram covers someone in the infield even this year. When I look at the Panda I see a guy who should hit very well in Fenway, similar to Ortiz in approach. Hopefully without such a pull emphasis. I do more »

    Moncada should definitely start in the minors. I'm saying he's played against better competition levels than we think but he could still benefit from time in the minors. I have zero doubt he will star more »

    I think I said 2 more years Moon and then he would be 21-22 years old. If Moncada's a better player for it we would have him in his age 22-28 years assuming he's not a super 2, which we should make su more »

    I'm saying we should expect the sox to spend money on the team. They have a huge cash cow they couldn't mess up if they tried. I have no problem with them going over the luxury tax limit this year and more »

    The Sox are brilliant mathmaticians. They hire the best economists to run the numbers. Sure, we can get a top starter like Hamels but at a huge cost in talent and cash. I  think the Sox are onto somet more »

    Cechinni would be of some value to Philly. I don't see him as much of a first baseman though, with so little pop. I see him as a decent corner OF though. He can run a little and he has a strong arm. H more »

    Prediction: Cechinni comes back strong next year in AAA and puts less emphasis on trying to hit the ball out of the park. He should just be who he was, which was a very high OBP/average guy with real more »
