    ok dont shoot my idea down but since we need a 1st basemen and the Nats just traded for Span why don't we trade to Mike Morse he will be a great addition to our lineup what do you say?!!

    Meh.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Nah, he's talking about the same guy.

    I knew who it was. It's just that Meyer is a top 100 spec. I thought Span was like 32/33 not 28 though, so it was a lot more fair than I thought. Minnesota probably actually lost this deal.

    Marino Pepén ‏@Marino_Pepen
    A Napoli #RedSox le hizo una oferta que aún no ha respondido. “@RotondoKyle: @Marino_Pepen se napoli cerca de firmar con los Medias Rojas?”
    So we made Napoli an offer, still waiting for a response.

    Hope the offer for Napoli isn't 4 years. 3yrs/33 is what I'd like to see.

    I'd be perfectly fine with 3 years/$36M.

    Same - fine with 3/36, would go to 39 before a 4th year.

    True. He's really bad with the leather at 1B and 3B however.

    Not to mention that we might have two OF platoons, and having 3 platoons is way too much. He would give a backup at 3B though

    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 better catcher than Reynolds is a 3B. But if the Sox sign Napoli I really can't see him catching too many games with the logjam they have behind the plate. I don't know but Reynolds intrigues me.

    yeah, but that's percentage, his footwork is brutal. At the right price I'd take him on as I'm not sure how much further than 125 WMB can go.

    We'll be dealing away Salty any day now, or making him the back-up at 1B and DH.

    One way we can get Napoli to give up catching is give him 4 w/ an option/buy-up (yuck)

    Here's an out-of the box idea

    Hey guys, new here, longtime lurker. I came up with a somewhat out of the box idea for the Sox, let me know what you guys think. It came about from reading these two tweets:

    This would be interesting: Swisher (4/$14-$15), Napoli (3/$13--4th year option), and Ross (2/$8) would provide a lot of flexibility and power through the use of platooning.

    Home v. LHP:
    C: Napoli (.273/.381/.529)
    1B: Swisher (.270/.402/.441)
    LF: Gomes (.284/.312/.512)
    RF: Ross (.284/.353/.575)
    Home v RHP:
    C: Ross (.234/.323/.448)
    1B: Napoli (.253/.347/.498)
    LF: Ross (.253/.312/.415)
    RF: Swisher (.250/.342/.478)
    Away v. LHP:
    C: Napoli (.273/.381/.529)
    1B: Swisher (.270/.402/.441)
    LF: Gomes (.284/.312/.512)
    RF: Ross (.284/.353/.575)
    Away v. RHP:
    C: Ross (.234/.323/.448)
    1B: Napoli (.273/.381/.529)
    LF: Nava (.262/.370/.401)
    RF: Swisher (.270/.402/.441)

    Ross at Fenway: .298/.364/.621
    Ross away: .232/.294/.390
    Jerry sands is possible against RHP to platoon with Gomes/Ross (.295/.364/.575 MiLB line against RHP) or to play at first in Fenway v. RHP with Napoli sliding to C, I think he could take advantage of the park dimensions well.

    Note: the stats above are the players respective stats against LHP/RHP
