I doubt Morales gets dealt
- Morales is a decent target given his versatility and power arm; I won't be surprised to see him dealt now that Breslow is signed through 2014 (plus option).
- Aceves will hang around until he goes AWOL again; in the proper role (a la 2011) he's a great asset.
- Salty should be gone. Forget his 25HRs. He doesn't do enough with the bat to makeup for his poor game calling.
Oh, yeah, I won't be surprised to see the Sox carry an extra RP over an extra bench guy so only one move might set things right.
I agree with RST, I've been thinking that we'll go with an 8 man bullpen.
Well, pens end up being two numbers during the year, like 6 and 7 or 7 and 8. At least in April it seems unlikely we'll carry extra arms.
Then there is the whole issue on how many more options players have. If the Sox can't get something they want in a deal, they'll carry a guy in some cases rather then cutting him loose.
We still have about 50+ days before we'll have a good idea...
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.”
told you all since 2010 he was a toolbag.....
Yeah with Nava, Ciriaco, Ross, Sweeney, Overbay, and Iglesias vying for bench spots, it would be a tough task to go with a 3 man bench... especially in April when arms should be "fresh".
