I can't recall how many thousands of times I've read around here that you always trade prospects for proven major league talent
Hanrahan-Uehara-Bailey seems like a shutdown reliever corps so I'm happy with that.
I don't get the negativity. I can't recall how many thousands of times I've read around here that you always trade prospects for proven major league talent. I also don't get why this isn't a good deal for both sides. If the Sox thought Sands would stick at first with his PCL-inflated numbers, they would have tried him out.
And the Reddick trade primarily didn't work because Bailey got hurt (not a surprise) and Reddick turned out to be a defensive stud.
I wonder if this helps the 40 man in some way?
The Sox now have no one except David Ortiz who is a firstbaseman until they sign Napoli. Am I forgetting someone?
I'd bet that even with Napoli the Sox will give Gomes and one of the catchers some time at first base in March.
Heyman suggests the more players are going from Sox to Bucs, not the other way.
Come on McCutchen!
And it's well past time you Sox fans let that one go and stopped bringing it up like some Bagwell for Anderson mistake
Seems like its taking an awfully long time to get the full details on this trade.
Maybe it's the new strategy. Leak part of a trade, wait a day to see what the internet geniuses and the fan base have to say, balance the trade out. :-)
Walt chews me out for freaking out praises DALE? Jeez Luis Rivera
is napoli supposed to be a full time 1B?
If Cherington regularly swaps 4th OF prospect types for relievers but those 4th OF types keep turning into starters then obviously there's a major problem. But swapping a 4th OF prospect for a good reliever (or maybe even excellent in Bailey's case) is usually a smart move.
he had that great arm, and could hack it well enough in cf to be a clear plus in right, so at the very least he was outstanding defensively in right. but he also showed that hte power was there when he made contact
i'm probably the only one, but every time i read "hanrahan", my next thought is almost invariably "lisa needs braces".
there are guys who can't play 1B
