    In response to moonslav59's comment: There were only 14 positional players under age 25 with WARs over 0.5 last year. There were 52 age 25-28. So 52 players proved kingface wrong. Too bad he's always more »

    Is Seattle righthander Hisashi Iwakuma too old to be considered among the top 2016 free agent starting pitchers?

    I guess I should not ask about Mariner lefthander J.A. Happ.

    In response to moonslav59's comment: I really like Wright too. I think Barnes will be the second guy up. Workman might get a spot start here or there. I think Owens will be ready by June. If we end up more »

    In response to Soph's comment: Sox did not acquire Masterson, Kelly, Miley, Porcello to be in the bullpen.  They will be given ample opportunity to fail. Nothing will happen unless SP gets injured or more »

    In response to moonslav59's comment: I like Porcello as a solid #3, Miley 4 and Clay #5 (based on recent results). Porcello would be a number 1 on 5-10 teams, a number 2 on another 10-15 teams. We hav more »

    In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: Ramirez has also put up more WAR than Hamels while spending much more time on the D.L. If the move to LF preserves his body at all that should account for the more »

    What I find interesting are the similarities between the contract obligations to Cole Hamels and Hanley Ramirez, who were born four days apart in 1983. Hamels is owed $90 million over the next four se more »

    The concern with Xander Bogaerts is his floor, which may be no higher than his 2014 performance of 0.4 fWAR. It happens to top-ranked prospects. Bogaerts may never approach the 4.0 fWAR Cole Hamels ha more »
