    get rid of Dice-K. I was rooting for him when he first came to the majors, but now I just wish the Sox to be done with him what a bust.

    Don't worry about it. His contract is up and he is gone.


    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.”

I believe next years team will not be remotely close to what the general concensus believes will be the case.
    Napoli has two really good years in a 7 year career, isn't much of catcher, gets nicked up a lot. AND he'll want a hefty deal - no thanks.

    Hamilton isn't coming here.

    We won't sign a big name this year (outside of Ortiz), we may make a big deal. But the target IMO is 2015, trying to compete next year is going to cost us a lot of our farm, and its not worth it.

    i don't see them giving deals to big free agents such as Napoli & Hamilton. which that being i don't see them giving deals to pitchers like Liriano, Jackson & McCarthy Either.

    I think Ben will use the money more wisely. meaning he'll sign players who are probably under the radar like theo did in 1st year with Mueller, Papi & Millar.

    also don't be surprised to see the sox bringing in pitchers who are past there prime or in there twilight of there careers like they did last year & creating competition in spring training. who ever is the new manager he'll probably have Rubby De La Rosa join the competition for the 5th spot pending the arm has fully rehabbed from TommyJohn.

    Yeah, many times since I argue for him on the MLB board as well as here going back a few years.

    If he has two more years at the average of his last 3, he'll be a HOF'er. That's pretty serious.

    Even one might get him there. Voters would have to consider where he played, but he is the epitome of what every player should strive to be.

    I think we are saying the same thing here Bags. I am not interested in Napoli, or Hamilton (unless we could get them on short deals, which isn't going to happen).

    If we can make a few changes here and there, make a few strides towards the right direction. Obviously, that is the best way to move forward. We can't give up the farm. Once Theo started doing that, everything went downhill.

    I dont get the Napoli hype anyway. He had a freak year last year but in general doesnt put up good numbers; especially for a 1B.

    The best reason i can give for him coming here is that he kills it at Fenway and the East is easy on RHB.

    He's an option, but not a great one. Id rather see Davis, Belt, or even Smoak here next year honestly.

    I know but im just talking about who i would like to see there. And honestly Smoak wouldnt take much. I would be fine with giving up Brentz to land one too (Belt or Davis i mean).

    Either Lester or Buchholz is gone to make room for some young gun pitchers. Don't ask me who we should get but I predict the pitching staff will look a lot different next year. Plus we will have to deal with Shlackey.

    I cant say i dont think is a good idea, but i dont know if the Sox brass will pull the trigger on dealing on of them. I think selling Buchholz makes a lot of sense. He's fragile and with that contract and his potential is worth a lot.

    I read somewhere that Pedro was one of De La Rosa's idols growing up. I think it would be a great idea to get Rubby working with Pedro. This is the exact type of thing Pedro could greatly help with. De La Rosa has a small build too, something Pedro could definitely relate to.
