Please no long term deals for The Panda. Too much risk that his stats keep dropping while the weight keeps going up.

Let's hope that Ben can make up for Larry's mistake last spring.

Hope Stanton signs with the Marlins so Nick can move on from him. The MLBPA is the strongest union on the planet. Guaranteed money and no weight clauses, no way would I give a long term deal to Panda.

Smart of Lester to make the Sox his first stop. One would hope that the Sox would give him a competitive offer.
Posted 11/12/2014 03:24:12 EST
Hoping the Sox can tie his salary to his weight. Panda is likely to be a guy that "retires" on the field after making his money.

Pass on Hanley. We don't need another diva in the clubhouse. The Sox should copy the Giants and invest in pitching (in this case bringing back Lester) and augment a young core with veterans. Haven't c more »

I'll never understand why the Sox value guys that haven't proven that they can win in Boston over a guy that has already proven it in Lester. If they are going after Shields and Hamels, the 30 year ol more »

Sandoval will likely never be in shape again after signing for big money. Call him CC2. Lester should be the focus for the Sox on pitching. Won't happen because Larry won't swallow his pride, but the more »

Nick left out that he'll still vote ARod into the hall given his criteria on Bonds and others. Wow how has Nick turned on previous savior, Cespedes. Likely since he signed with Roc Nation, who are Bor more »

No details just fluff from Ben. I get it that he doesn't call the shots on Yawkey, but better to say nothing than espouse this dribble. more »

Hopefully the Sox move past there arbitrary rules on age and sign pitchers that can win in the postseason. More Lester, less Shields. more »

Too much ink for Montreal. more »

I hope the Sox can get back to the Giants blueprint and not chase big contracts for position players. They should stay invested in developing pitching and fix the mistake of letting Lester go. more »

Peavy and Shields. No difference in the playoffs. Yet one is considered an ace and the other is a back-end starter. more »

Good for Maddon. He was underpaid. Baseball owners need to share some of the new riches. more »

Painful performance that reminds you that winning playoff pitchers are a rare breed. Lester is one of those guys but the Sox wanted to move on rather than pay him. I'm still shaking my head that CC wa more »

Any writing coaches available for the globe? They could teach the staff about varying topics and doing research. Hopefully then we wouldn't get the weekly drumbeat for Stanton and Materson. more »

Mr Gasper, now what have the Dodgers accompished? more »

A "kazillion" dollars? Funny to hear Nick complain about money when he is always pushing for players to get paid. more »

I never understood the trade. I doubt the Sox will offer enough to get him back. more »
Posted 09/30/2014 07:52:23 EDT
The Sox are all over the place. They want a young core of players but also want to package a lot of kids in deals for veteran arms. They spent all season saying that they won't sign players in their 3 more »

Good for Nick to finally admitting how bad Drew was this year. Hopefully he stops pumping up Boras clients over the winter months, but I'm not holding my breath. more »

Should have always stayed an OC. more »
