According to mlbtraderumors.com, the Sox could be eyeing another starter, considering Josh Beckett's injury. Both Kevin Millwood and Vicente Padilla have cleared waivers, and the Sox have apparently inquired about both of them. Thoughts?

I think Padilla could be an interesting addition. He has pitched fairly well so far this year so maybe he would be a good option. I'm sure they are going to look at anyone and everyone but right now I honestly don't think there will be another deal until the offseason rolls around for the Red Sox.

What concerns me about both Padilla and Millwood is that they have an ERA of 5. That may be because of the fact that they pitch in Texas, but it's still a risk to take one of them on, IMO.

we're better without them. i'd rather see pauly or bowden. with wake coming back and colon. we have byrd,lester dice-k. and then when beckett comes back we'll have 6 staters so we dont need any more. GIVE BOWDEN A SHOT!!!!

id like to get a Padilla or Milwood in here. I think pitching for a pennant will bring out the best in both of them. id be happy if they sox signed either of them. ill take veterans over rookie call ups any day

Millwood any day over Padilla. But that's me. Millwood has been up and down, but always a solid SP.

I think either would be a waste of time, energy, money, and prospects for a stop gap solution that's not going to give you any tangible improvement or advantage. In my modest opinion, it would be a bad move.

I wouldn't mind seeing Millwood. I think he could help a lot. Padilla on the other hand isn't that attractive to me.

No way in hell I'd want to add either Millwood ($23M) or Padilla ($13.75M guaranteed for 2009 incl 2010 buyout) considering the $$$ they're owed for the next two years.

If they bit on either we then know Beckett's injury is serious. I'm guessing they inquire about every player on waivers pretty much , that's a need.

I'd say that's a strong opinion. :p

Even though it's probably against every instinct I have...I'd have to go along with bringing Arroyo back...that'd be cool.

His hot start in 2006 got him a $22M, 2+yr extension. I don't think I want to pay him $9.5M next year and $11M in 2010. It'd be kinda hard to justify with Beckett around.

Haha...I was actually just kidding man, I totally agree with you. That would be about as cool as bring Millar back.
