    Why are Texas catchers the only ones worth going after? Slaty won't be moved, and Teagarden is the backup and not hitting (like Kottaras). Don't the Sox need a guy with pop anyway? more »

    [Quote]Can't release them unless they agree because of the confidentiality contract. ARod's problem is finding who outed him. However MLB needs anyone who did take HGH, steroids, etc... to man up othe more »

    I say release all names, let everyone come clean, and let's begin the process of healing and moving forward. I'm even thinking of boycotting MLB (it should be easier living in the Dallas area with onl more »

    When I read this post, I believe he meant truly an All-Star-caliber player, at least consistently. more »

    I sincerely hope so. I'm not ready for him to move on. He, to me, has always epitomized the "Baseball Player", in build, temperament, and speaking to the press. Tek IS baseball, the good, the bad, and more »

    As far as Burell is concerned, he has not been in a division like he will face in the AL east and he would be at best a marginal upgrade over Eric Hinske who hit 20 HRs for the Rays in only 381 ABs. W more »

    Trade Bya-and then who do you get to replace him? Those guys are great to ADD to a team with Bay. Let the guy have a full year in Beantown to show us what he's got! more »

  • Posted 01/02/2009 10:52:58 EST

    Why not get him? He's not the same guy who left the Sox. He's expressed interest (if reports can be believed) and would benefit from the Sox' defense. Can't hurt to have a good arm like his for a few more »

    Even if Sox get him for what they have offered (assuming they have put a proposal together), he still is getting more than they need to spend on a gold-glove OPS guy they already have! I say lower the more »

    It's good to see something about the pitching. It seems all the "Buzz" is about a certain resident Texan who will go nameless. What about Lowe? Smoltz? Where's the info on how these guys are feeling a more »

    Maybe, just maybe, the guy just doesn't want to play for the Red Sox. Some players can have a chance in other places to win. Sox are my choice, but not for everyone. It doesn't have to be ploy to get more »

    So, I was thinking this was a good deal. THEN I saw the Sox tossed money for the contract in there, and Moss, for one guy we don't know will thrive in the big market? I'll scratch my head, but hopeful more »

    Ya'll, don't forget that Coco has been held by the Sox in the "hopes" of getting a lefty pitcher named Johan. The potential trade seemed to put many deals around MLB on hold. If there wasn't that mayb more »

    This deal gets done-and the Sox have 2 LEFTIES in their rotation----how often have they had this for real? I like Ellsbury A LOT- but pitching wins series, and Series, and hopefully other moves can be more »

    I want to keep Jacoby. The twins need to decide and do it soon the Sox can move on other free agents and make deals using some of the guys the Twins are "deciding" on. Are they even deciding, or just more »

    I agree. This sweep of the other Sox is real nice. Of course, that team isn't a playoff contender. So, Sox should feel good getting a day off, but in no way can they relax until AFTER the World Series more »
