I see what your saying but its kinda confusing since Boagerts has the higher ceiling so why would bradley floor be higher than Boagerts
Presently he's the more polished/advanced player, but should Bogaerts reach his ceiling, he'll be the better player by a significant margin.
Bogaerts is 4-10 Bradley is a 6-8
I gotta feeling wooooooohoooooooooo todays gonna be a big day... that todays gonna be a big big day!!
Sorry had to do it lol...
I feel like today there are going to be some big moves made! Potentially with us trading Ellsbury.
If he gets hurt or sucks at the deadline it's 0x.
If he plays well and is healthy, and two teams need a CF/leadoff guy badly, you might 2.5x (in the form of specs). What contending team would give you a key 25 man roster piece? What team out of the running would give you anything?
Not you per se, but Sox fans are hoping for too much here. If we must trade now it would have to be for an aging $15M+ SP with one year of control on a team desperate for a CF before ST that doesn't like or misses out on the FA CF's.
I don't know about you, but a SP with a clean bill of health that is a #3 in the AL East that we get for one year that costs $6-12M more this year than Ellsbury I wouldn't classify as a big deal return. Same for a banged up #1.5 SP that's seen too many winters and miles on the arm. This only works if the Sox really feel Ellsbury is one of the real negative guys in the clubhouse.

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.....
why does Ben want another Multi-positional player? not complaining btwThe Red Sox still need someone to back-up Mike Napoli at first base, writes Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com. While names like Carlos Pena and Casey Kotchman are on the market, general manager Ben Cherington would prefer the backup to be someone who can play multiple positions.
Pena i assume wants to start so i doubt we'd bring him in, though he is a good first baseman defensively and obviously has power but his average is always too low.
Kotchman idr too much about him but he had a real good season w/ the rays a few seasons ago iirc....he a lefty also ?
