    Who actually thinks Boras will let Ellsbury sign an extension? Not me.

    Ellsbury's value isn't that great right now. Best bet for them is a deadline deal where he has been healthy and played well (2011 level not needed).


    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'm not sure the Cubs make that deal, but then again, I'm not sure really what mode the Cubs are in right now. I think Theo wants to flip Garza for a package of prospects, including some high upside arms.

    Theo however is familiar with ells, and the cubs need something to not be absolutely terrible lol. Ells' upside is much higher than Garza aswell but it fills a need for both teams

    capable pitching is much more valuable than a guy with a six year career containing 1 MVP like season, several good years, and a lot of injuries, and an agent that won't let him play hurt.

    If Theo accepts that deal, something is wrong with Garza.

    Theo could opt to do something like this, but if I had to guess he'd perfer to turn Garza into long term assets. We the Cubs aren't close to contending, so if we could swap Garza into a legit upper minors arm or something of that nature, I'm sure we'd be more apt to do that.

    There are 3 teams that make sense for Ellsbury, IMO, because they all have some pitching they can afford to trade.

    Atlanta - Teheran or Mike Minor +?

    San Francisco - Vogelsong or Surkamp +? Maybe Ells for Lincecum?

    Seattle - Wonder if they'd come up with a package of Hultzen or Vargas along with another arm, Capps?

    Just thinking out loud, but those seem to be the 3 logical destination.
    Here's to feeling good all the time.

    I don't want anything to do with Vogelsong. Dude is already 35. Really good 2011, and a decent 2012, but thats it. Before '10 he was in the Japanese league cause he couldn't stick with a team.

    This makes no sense for Boston. We're two years away from competing, so why would we try for a guy who will be 40 then when we could get prospects for him? Dickey is also a bad fit for Fenway and the AL East in general.

    Like this kid, but he plays really hard and very risky.
    I've always seen him as a Grady Sizemore, a player who gives it his all, but risks injury.

    I would say trade him to Oakland, but they already have Crisp.

    My Phillies need a CF'er, but we don't have enough to entice Boston imo.

    Agreed. I mean Biddle is pretty good, but May is overrated and if he wasn't, Phillies fans wouldnt put him in literally 80% of their trade ideas. Still I dont see them being able to pony up what the Sox are looking for. But there's always three way deals so don't count the Phillies out. They're due for a big move.

    Age is sort of irrelevant for a knuckleballer but i get what you are saying.

    It's less of a problem but if it was really irrelevant you wouldn''t want to trade him.
