    I think the Sox would certainly be willing to pick up some, if not most of the cash to make that deal happen. It would all come down to how much would the Pirates be willing to gamble to have a real...

    I agree, Pittsburgh seems like a much better fit than LAD. The only way Kemp makes sense for the Sox is if it's a salary dump by the Dodgers and allows the Red Sox to get better prospects in the...

    I agree. After all of the excitement of having the #7 pick for the last 6 months its been quite a let down. Not that its been a bad draft, just not an exciting or sexy draft so far. I'm really hoping...

    I agree that its highly unlikely they go 4 HS guys in a row, that's just my preference. I find it hard to get excited about some of these college guys, especially with it being a weak draft....

    Like most people I think the #7 pick is going to come down to Stewart, Frazier and Meadows. I think Stewart goes #4 to Minnesota (although I wouldn't be too disappointed because he does scare me) and...

    Until they get to the deadline. I'm okay with them being patient and hoping he rebuilds his value, but if he has a solid first half of the season and the Sox are out of the playoff hunt, it would be...

    With the Hamilton signing I think that certainly makes Ells a much more attractive trade candidate. The two teams hurt most by the signing are obviously Texas who has had a terrible offseason so far,...

    I think with the money the Dodgers have they will make Kershaw a Dodger for life and possibly the highest paid pitcher in baseball history. I don't think there is any chance the Sox can get him,...

    I don't think anybody seriously thinks that Myers will be an MVP candidate or hit 40 homers next season, but this trade (and the one a lot of us hoped the Sox would have made) isn't about next...

    The problem is that Texas flat out are not trading Andrus. If they weren't willing to move him for Upton then there is nothing we have that would make them trade him now. I think its time to move on...

    For me, any move we make with Ells should be focused towards the future. Either top prospects or young guys under control. The only way I would take on an ageing guy or a rental like Garza is if we...

    I think the time for trading Lester has passed, any move now would be a step back. I think we hold on to him and hope he rebounds, then try and move him to a desperate team at the deadline. If he...

    I think we should let things play out before we start criticizing Ben. Seattle is desperate, so they may throw huge money at Hamilton which would be silly to match. I am for signing Hamilton but only...

    100% agree. Trading Lester and Ells are bold and risky moves, but they are potentially organisational changing moves. If they let both guys play out their contracts we will probably be better short...

    I've been reading 3yrs $30 mil for Victorino so I thought it would be better to overpay a little for 2 years instead of 3. Either way I think he would be trade bait after the first year when Jackie...

    The more I think about it the more I would like to sign Hamilton to a 4 year deal, maybe with a vesting option for a 5th. There would need to be some strongly worded clauses to allow the Sox to void...

    The question is who else is available that is better? It's not a strong market so they may see Lester as the top guy available.

    This is why I would like to hang on to Cecchini. I think he has the chance to be a quality lefty bat at 3B, 1B or LF. It is also why I would be against signing Napoli for too many years. With the...
