Okay, this is just kind of for fun. If you could go back and NOT trade one of the youngsters in the last couple of season, who would it be?

REMEMBER: If you say Hanley, that doesn't mean we never get Beckett for Hanley. if you say Brandon Moss, that doesn't mean we never traded for Jason Bay, and it doesn't mean we never signed Drew. Just the one guy that you wish you could still have.

Pick any of the following, or, if you can remember someone I didn't name:

1) Hanley Ramirez
2) David Eckstein
3) David Murphy
4) Craig Hansen
5) Brandon Moss
6) Angel Beltre
7) Kason Gabbard
8) Matt Murton
9) Brandon Lyon
10) Andy Marte
11) Anibal Sanchez
12) Freddy Sanchez
13) Wily Mo Pena
14) Clay Meredith

I'll throw Freddy Sanchez' name in there as my opinion. Keep him as our starting second baseman, and you've perhaps got Pedroia at short now, a middle infield both consistently hitting over .300, and no Lugo. Admittedly, we got Lyon in that deal, which was a big piece in the Schilling trade, but I don't think it'd have reversed that trade either.

Here's an odd one, but I want to break the rule that "It doesn't mean we didn't get . . ."

Red Sox signed Julio Lugo, forfeiting their 1st round pick.

Rick Porcello was widely considered the best HS arm available in the draft, and fell to ~25, where as the Red Sox held the 20th pick that year.

Hanley definitely.

I also like Murphy, Moss, Freddy Sanchez, Lyon, and Cla Meredith.

Didn't we trade Jeff Bagwell? If so then him or Adam Everett. Everett is an excellent defensive short stop with great range and a great arm, he could fill the spot for Lugo.

Easily David Murphy

You guys are saying Hanley but that means we don't get Beckett and Lowell and probably would not have won the World Series.

We still keep Lowell and Beckett.

That's stupid. The answer is obviously Hanley then.

but wait.. if we didn't trade him when we did.. we wouldn't have gotten them recently.. you can't just take away a trade and assume we still get the other guy.

u guys say that now the gagne trade was bad but we were killed in the trade from the start

Guys, it's just for fun. Obviously we couldn't have gotten Beckett/Lowell without trading Hanley. I'm just wondering who you guys would want the most of anyone.

Well obviously if you don't have to worry about the consequences of any trade that brought a player here, clearly Hanley Ramirez is the answer.

But if you DO have to take into account the consequences of such a trade, the answer would be vastly different.

Easily David Murphy

I miss Murphy a lot and Coco would be toast by now if we'd held onto him... but given the state of our catching today I'll throw in Josh Bard.

Hanley, I would of just loved to see how he would of developed in Boston. We have a lot of "dirt dog" types of guys that come up through the farm but he is a super star, it would be interesting to see the media attraction to him.
