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.”
Some jerks never learn.....
I just don't see Giancarlo as a fit.
The team is rebuilding or is in a brige year, it would wreck the minors, turning it from one of the best systems, to one of the worst. It would obviously require Xander + Barnes + a ton more.
I don't know why you would want that. I would take my chances with 4 or 5 good prospects over Stanton. Especially with this team.
I don't see Ben going after him.
OTOH, trading for a Stanton would be like trying to get a young Manny (production wise) into this lineup, which shouldn't be sneezed at.
What about Mike Carp?
FIGHT OWENS FIGHTPOWER. BOMB. EVERYBODY.
You'd have Stanton for four seasons and have created space for RDLR and/or Webster. Works for me.
Say bai bai to Daisuke Matsuzaka, back to Japan. As for the last move that needs to happen. Get Napoli's press conference done already.
