I want to keep him thank you very much
Contract is RIDICULOUS for a platoon OF, don't care how well he hits RHP.
I would like the Red Sox Trade Rubby De La Rossa, Bryce Brentz, Daniel Bard, Joes Iglesias, and Brandon Workman to the D-Backs for Justin Upton
Oh how I wish
Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all
This is what I would like to see the Red Sox do to finish out their winter...
Trade Salty(C) to Chic.WS for A.Rios(RF)
Trade Bailey,Aceves,Nava for Detroit's Porcello(SP) or Smyly(SP)
Trade Lester & Ellsbury+, to Seattle for E.Ramirez(SP) and possibly J.Smoak(1st base) if we dont get either Jones or Sanchez in the Hanrahan trade.
That would give the Sox 2 young pitchers, a power hitting RF, a backup 1stbasemen/OF ( assuming Napoli signs), on top of the Closer we're about to acquire.
Starting rotation: 1.Buchholz, 2.Ramirez, 3.Doubront, 4.Dempster, 5.Porcello/Smyly, 6.Lackey(trade bait once healthy).
Lineup: 1.Victorino, 2.Pedroia, 3.Ortiz, 4.Rios, 5.Middlebrooks, 6.Napoli/, 7.Gomes, 8.Ross(C), 9.Drew
Because you are getting a bust 1B and a current #4-5 pitcher for two former all stars, both with the potential to be again.
Upton is going to cost a ton. Whether he is worth it or not, they don't need to trade him, so it's gonna take a lot more than a reliever and OF spec to get him. They don't really need either of those either. OF is full, pen is solid.
