    Regarding pitching, there are a lot of solid FA starters. Why not take Victorino's money and a little extra and sign Kazmir, and/or Leake. Both real dependable starters. We have the cash and after the more »

    Southpaw, I think you make a lot of solid points about Vasquez and I admit that I haven't been following baseball much for the past couple months and had missed how bad Swihart's PB and WP numbers wer more »

    I get that Vasquez frames pitches well and that lots of knowledgeable analysts prefer him over Swihart but I just can't help thinking that the sample size data on his alleged superstar pitch framing s more »

    Hembree and Escobar are #29 and 34 on the Sox prospcts list. Don Meredith started singing a while ago.

    Dombroski is a guy who is willing to spend big for a premium guy like Grienke or Price but I don't see the Sox being willing to go to those levels to sign them. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't s more »

    The season is pretty much shot so let's play the kids but there is a limit to that approach. Why bother player Hembree and Escobar and other players who have near zero chance of really helping. Probab more »

    HanRam's contract is not nearly as depressing if Ortiz is gone. Objectively, considering our overall situation, we shouldn't bring back Ortiz. Especially if we are in rebuild mode. I think they probab more »

    It's particularly tough to see the pitching staff just implode night after night. I thought we'd be at least average. Instead we are a pitching nightmare. Why is it that a team like Toronto can just c more »

    The whole issue of Hanley hurting us bad defensively in left field is real. Our best team is probably with him at DH. Controversial as heck but true. Ortiz has been strong enough to hit the ball over more »

    What do you guys think of our #1 pick today? Benentendi? I love it. Great bat speed and pop. Can maybe slot well in our RF. Solid floor and should fit in well. Had the best season in all of college ba more »

    I kind of like Wright as the mop up guy. I bet he could pitch 3-4 innings every 2-3 days. That kind of guy can be usefull. It would give him experience in the majors also. Minimize his exposure around more »

    We could kind of use Rizzo right about now, as well as Agon. 2 huge bats lost.

    It's encouraging to see Castillo help us out a little also. He still looks to be trying to pull everything but he is going to run into a few HR also. He looks strong enough to hit it out to RF some if more »

    Brock Holt has earned some playing time and if he is continuing to produce I have no problem with him at either slot 1 or 2. It's not ideal but it's better than a .240 BA guy sometimes even if it is w more »

    Is it good to have a lead? Well, my gosh it is! What insight!

    Look up the numbers when teams have a lead going into the 9th. It's pretty likely they are going to win then also.

    Here is to hoping he's the next Pedro. This kid seems to have the tools. Introducing 17 year old Anderson Espinoza's first start in pro baseball: http://www.baseballamerica.com/minors/prospect-hot-she more »

    So: Buchholz Porcello Erod Johnson Kelly Miley Wright Owens Barnes That's 9 potential starters. I imagine the Sox will sign one even if everyone is healthy but that is decent depth. I'm assuming Maste more »

    In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: In response to slomag's comment: Yoan Moncada just made his 7th error at 2B.  He's hitting .256 in A ball.  I'm not one to jump on early results, but I was ex more »

    In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: Anderson Espinoza made his debut, looked pretty good was sitting around 95 MPH and topped out at 97 MPH........he's only been 17 for about 2 months. One of th more »

    They are going to body slam Owens fastball. If he gets it up it's gone. Fastball control is his priority and I'm glad he's working on it because he is definitely going to need it. Johnson looks for re more »

  • Posted 06/03/2015 06:36:21 EDT

    I think Johnson may well help us. I am not counting on Owens for much. His fastball is absolutely hittable. He's got to keep that pitch down and probably would be a better pitcher in a big stadium. I more »

    I don't care which arm they throw with as long as they get guys out. Erod sure looks good doesn't he! Now he is mixing in his other pitches more and the other team is flailing away. I love it! The bes more »

    With a little luck we may not need to sign a #1: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/eduardo-rodriguez-shows-hes-ready-for-the-majors/ Let's cross our fingers and while we are at it maybe bring up Johnson more »

    Posted 06/03/2015 12:53:52 EDT

    Actually quite a few guys wanted to draft Gallo. I remember some of those conversations. The kid came up from AA ball and gets 3 hits today. Almost 2 HR. And the other teams pitchers give him 3 pitche more »
