    He's very deserving. There's an argument to be made (Buster Olney has actually mentioned this a few times) that the Bobby Valentine fiasco was one of the best things that could have happened to the...

    Let's not forget that Holliday's signing also could have potentially saved the Sox from re-committing to Beckett. Once the ink was dry on Lackey's awful deal, it set the benchmark for Beckett's...

    I agree completely. But that thinking seems far too rational for this ownership group. Smart and sexy generally aren't synonymous, especially when it comes to the MLB trade deadline.

    Nothing that Ellsbury does this coming season will make me want the Sox to resign him. I don't care if he matches his 2011 production, improves on his 2011 production or, more likely, gets injured...

    The Sox ability to be a contender in 2013 comes down to two factors IMO.

    1) Can the team stay healthy? & 2) Will Farrell have a stabilizing effect on the starting rotation?

    If those two...

    While some of the more involved trade scenarios that have been mentioned probably won't happen, I do think now that Texas has lost Hamilton they become a real potential landing spot for Ellsbury. I...

    Texas always seemed like the only logical landing spot to me for Ellsbury. And that, of course, was only if Hamilton left them. Since that seems to be the case now, I really hope that BC works that...

    I'll only eat crow if Dempster performs well. Because that's a lot of money for a 35-year old pitcher who failed miserably, admittedly in a very short time frame, in the AL. I like that it's two...

    I don't like this at all. If it's still a 2-year deal, just for more money, then I just dislike it. If it's for 3 years then I absolutely hate it.

    Dempster spent his entire career in the NL...

    It's a little toxic in here. I'll tread lightly.

    I've never believed that the Sox should sign Hamilton. He's an excellent player but he's wrong for the Sox given their plan going forward. Now...

    I like Victorino but the price seems a bit high. I guess it's what the market dictated, but if Ross wanted 3/$25mil as has been reported then I don't entirely understand this signing. I know that...

    I think I read that his fielding % at 1B is actually better than Napoli's. I guess it could be argued that Napoli's "other" position is more valuable than Reynolds. And Napoli is definitely a...

    This might be deemed a horrible thought by everyone here but I'm just throwing it out there. I see that the Orioles released Mark Reynolds, making him a FA. I know his K rate is dreadful but I kind...

    I'd have to say that no, I don't think I'd want them throwing that kind of money even at Kershaw. The only players that I can justify spending that on would be Felix Hernandez or Justin Verlander,...

    I'm not interested. No doubt the guy can mash but signing him would be the complete opposite of the direction that the team seems to be moving in. Even if he finds that the offers he's receiving in...

    I'm fine with the deal. Is there a reasonable chance that he breaks down and doesn't deserve all $26 mil for this particular deal? Of course. But here's why I'm fine with it.
