    What's the point? There's 15 players on a roster, and 100 numbers you can use. Why is wearing 75, for example, a problem?

    I would like to see them both in the pen. If Kelly can become one of those 8th or 9th inning types and Hembree is for real, suddenly you've got a really good bullpen. We've all seen with the Royals la more »

    Please don't jump so hard on the Shaw bandwagon yet. The kid's had a couple of really good games, but that's not enough to crown him a MLB player, let alone the starting 1B for next year. I think once more »

    Time will tell. It may turn out that the Mets wind up the big winners in all of this. So far the A's and Sox have been losers, the Cubs may be, and the Tigers could be. Who knows.

    I do it in a hertbeat. Wood is a really good young pitcher, and this lets you move Hanley back to the infield temporarily until Papi retires. Worst case you just sit Crawford as a really expensive 4th more »

    I think Shields may wind up being the contract the Padres want gone if they are taking on Pablo. Whether he would wind up with the Sox or the Cubs...who knows.

    I would keep both Betts and Xander. Just about anyone else is on the table. I'm not going to include Swihart unless it's for Gray or Kluber though. I like some of the other kids, but not enough to giv more »

    I wouldn't even say this is the most disappointing team of the last two years. We all knew the rotation was going to be shakey at best. We also assumed the back end of the rotation would be better tha more »

    I read this too. I love the kid, and would have loved to see him on this team. He's not anywhere close in reality, but that inning he pitched in the All Star game this year was '99 Pedro-esque.

    Their one weakness seems to be the bullpen. They have a sick lineup, as long as they can have one of their kids devalop as a leadoff guy. Their rotation is now much better with a true ace. Even though more »

    The only players the Sox have that would bring back Wheeler are Ramirez (if the Sox eat a lot) and Papi (if they thought he could play 1st full time). They're only going to get rid of Wheeler if they more »

    I've never been in the Hamels camp, but I think they need to do something. I feel like the Indians scenario is the best route to go. The Sox can afford to take back either Swisher or Bourn (or both) i more »

    What would the Pirates be willing to give up for de Aza? They were also looking at Napoli. If the Sox package them and eat a bunch of Nap's money, what could they realisticalyl get?
