    I think we should go out and sign Scott Rolen for 1st Base minor league deal or 1year league minimum salary.

    Jim Thome maybe good club house vet.
    Casey K
    Dan Johnson
    Travis Hafner ?? Not Bad Idea

    Morse shouldn't cost that much.

    I see his value as not too much different than Kendrys Morales, who netted a year of Jason Vargas. Meh.

    Actually I think I wrote about a month ago sign Rolen, and move WMB to 1B. Could work. Need a top back-up at 3B.


    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.....

    yes. cheaper option & i think Morse overrated imo. also Carp is undercontrol till 2017 & as for Morse he would be a FA next year.

    They were pretty much even last year, so I don't think that's a given. And Morse was hurt at the beginning of the year.

    No thanks. Let's concentrate on getting Napoli with the team or another free agent first baseman.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    Yes Carp is under control long than Morse but Morse is a better hitter. How is more controlled years of a mediocre hitter at 1B good for this team?

    It's going to take more if we want him - which I'm not sure is worthwhile.
    For a player with one year before FA? Personally I'm not dealing 3-for-1 in this scenario, especially after the precipitous drop in his slash.

    Cross-posting this link for the discussion. My fear with Morse is that the quick drop in slash is a nod in the direction of his peak being over.

    Please explain. Morales has a slightly lower slash (119 career OPS+ vs 126 for Morse) with more even distribution. Morales is also an above-average defender at 1B who actually plays the majority of his time at the position. Morse, by contrast, is slightly below average at 1B who has played only 30% of his time at 1B... and has played less 1B as time has progressed.

    I used 3YA (for Morales 4 years b/c of missed 2011) and it was offensively speaking. Morales' numbers are on a downward path over that time as well. They both had down years offensively this year I would say, but Morales' stats show a more blatant decline.

    Defensively Morse was good at 1B until 2011 when he was scary bad (-7 DRS). I'm not so sure what to expect from his defensively at 1st as a regular there.

    Personally I wouldn't be too excited for either of them.
