    Not to give myself too much of a pat on the back, but it seems like if there was ever a time to gloat about how much I've pimped Brooks' name over the last year and a half...

    Red Sox sign Carlos Silva to a MLC

    via Scott Lauber on twitter

    Not a great signing, but for SP depth you could do much, much worse.

    I mean you guys are preaching to the choir right now, I've been talking up Brooks as a top-10 talent from this draft for the better part of a year and a half now. He'll be good for 20+ on any given...

    I mean, I've been one of the more vocal Brooks supporters on PSD since a couple of years ago, and while I'll think forever that trading him was a mistake, it's also far too early to tell. As much as...

    And not even really that- he had one blow-up start in late July (7 ER in 3 2/3) and outside of that didn't allow more than 4 ER in a start all season.

    Personally I think the makeup for a strong...

    +1, though Che-Hsuan Lin might get a crack ahead of those two as he's already on the 40-man.

    Nice pickup all around. Bullpen is crowded at the beginning of the year, but by June/July when he's available again, the question marks of Jenks, Albers, Morales and Miller will likely have sorted...

    I was really confused as to why they even signed her on to kill her off so early. I was pretty bummed.

    Other than that I thought it was a great movie. Really well done.

    I think Albers is a good fit, or at least has some upside. He's historically been pretty good through the end of July before the wheels come off (ERA around 4.00), he's AL East battle-tested, and...

    After getting Bailey, I'm resigned to one of Bard or Aceves being in the rotation on opening day. Personally I don't love it, but there's no way the Sox plan on having 4 high-impact, right-handed...

    Alcantara might hurt a few years down the line, but just as easily might flame out. Head's got some upside as a hitter but with other big-hit guys that might move to first (Lavarnway, Vitek,...

    My little brother rented Gulliver's Travels (with Jack Black) from Redbox a few weeks ago. Absolutely brutal to watch, even with the low standards I've set for Black these days. Just a terrible movie.

    Basically what Corey posted. The backdrop is quite 1984-esque.



    Agreed. Liked the books less as they moved forward. I'll wind up at least going to see the first one.

    As an aside, I think...

    I mean, I agree completely with you that's the decision we're making here. My concern is what happens with the 11 start discrepancy. If you get a Kyle Weiland-esque fill-in making those starts with a...

    Crappy move by St. Joe's, but for once you can't fault the NCAA here. O'Brien seems like a well-motivated kid, but there's already a pile of guys that transfer two or three times over the course of...

    Correct.

    I'm open-minded on the move. I don't know enough about the guy to make a sound decision one way or another. There was a note in the Globe today that Ned Yost let him go back in KC because...

    I'd personally like to toss Paul Maholm's name into the mix. I do like Oswalt, it just makes me wonder what kind of red flags he's sending up if he's willing to take a 1-year deal at this point. I...

    I do like that he hasn't been too quick to the trigger, it'll go a long way especially after the quick-fix free agent gaffes of the past. That said, the majority of the Red Sox fanbase is going to...

    I don't think it's a coincidence that Valentine's contract expires at the same time John Farrell's does. Have to believe he's Option A on their list if Bobby doesn't work out.



    Agreed. Sounds...

    If they're going off of upside I think we're probably top-10, but Atlanta, Colorado and Texas should be higher than us there, though I think we might have the Yankees edged.

    I expect the counter-move will be Brace off the PUP.

    It stinks that Haynesworth didn't pan out, but from what's been said in the past couple days about his effort in the Giants game, it seems like...

    2 years for Beltran would work in my book. Let Reddick and Kalish battle it out for the 4th OF spot in spring training and consider trading the guy who comes in second. Linares and Lin in Pawtucket...

    I think if we're going to go after a guy in free agency, it's going to be an OLB. It's where BB has showed he'll spend before (Colvin, Thomas) and it's been a long time since he's found an effective...
