    +2

    Agree for a slightly different reason. I actually think Betts is safer than Bogaerts right now given his ability and comfort leading off. Owens might be valuable trade bait with Rodgriguez...

    Why is he the only FA 3B that can play 1B/DH? The other popular choice (Headely) has had a smattering of innings there and could handle it easily enough if he had to. 1B is one of the LEAST...

    You might want to lay off the name calling and stick to the facts if you hope to have any meaningful conversation.

    Is he really an "awesome hitter"? He has hit well in the playoffs throughout his...

    FWIW 2010-2014 is pretty close.
    Headley .266/.350/.412, 117OPS+, 312BB/652K
    Panda .283/.336/.442, 119OPS+, 203BB/367K

    If you went with the last three seasons, as the old FA compensation system...

    Did you check out the FanGraphs link I posted? His defense has really taken a nosedive the last few years and not simply with his injury plagued season this year. That's bad news for a 3B who tend...

    You're pretty close to what I've been thinking although I'm a bit more inclined to go with Headley over Sandoval. I think Headley will be more affordable in terms of both dollars and years,...

  8. Better Pitching through Better Defense?

    This may not be revolutionary thinking but it certainly runs against the grain of a lot of thought around the Red Sox rebuilding this offseason.

    What do you base the bolded part on? In context you're differing with someone who has said that Zimmerman's arm has gone down hill. FanGraphs tends to agree: release, arm strength, and arm accuracy...

    The downside to that approach is that, very often, the "connection" is based on media speculation rather than insight. I've seen plenty of players connected to the Red Sox in the past that were a...

    From Speier's chat yesterday:



    Nice close. To confound both j-bay and Cafardo, the answer on Hamels makes much more sense to me. It's not about what we WANT but about what makes sense. It...

    I definitely think JBJ goes back to PAW to work on things down there. If we can get him to something beyond a AAAA bat then he has much more value than he's got right now. Two option years; plan to...

    Hm. I'm starting to hear this "be patient like the Royals were with Moustakas" meme crop up in different places. I'm not sure if it's a case of cargo culting, common hero-making from the playoffs,...

    Interesting if true but I suspect that the Dodgers will push pretty hard to move at least two of Crawford, Ethier, and Kemp even if they have to eat some contract. Yesterday there were reports that...

    Breslow was one more name in the list of RPs who ran out of gas in October and the list of those guys who had a "playoff hangover" the next year is pretty extensive, too. Sadly, not a small number...

    C Vazquez, SS Bogaerts, 3B Holt/Cecchini/?, 4th OF Bradley, CF Betts, LF/RF Castillo. Basically half of the lineup has 1yr or less of ML service. Doesn't strike me as "veteran".

    Not thrilled about this, honestly. Colbrunn was pretty good at his job and well regarded in MLB. I'm assuming that his health was a primary distraction during the season (it would...
