I read that. Pretty dumb comments by Damon. First, Arroyo said he preferred to stay in the rotation. Second, Schilling is not the closer at this point. Timlin will be the closer for the time being while Schilling will be in the bullpen. If Timlin does well, I can't see them taking him out of that role.

I like Delcarmen as well. Gammons said on WEEI last week that he could be the next Francisco Rodriguez in terms of jumping up to the majors and succeeding. I think that is pretty optimistic, but he could be a solid contributer in the future.

YES! Please trade Millar. I have been pushing for this for a while now, and when Olerud came on-board my hopes were raised. Do it!

Wow, if he pans out like that I'll be singing his praises till I'm blue in the face. At the very least with a strong fastball and the best curve in the system he's going to be a great power arm out of the pen. Originally projected as a # 2 starter, but with the surgery, he seems poised to make a difference towards the end of games.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

the Hartford Courant is reporting that the Red Sox have DFA'd Jay Payton and he will likely be traded. This along with the Scott Cassidy move makes me think something is in the works.

And if Kapler is on a plane like I think he is, we get some bullpen help or a prospect for virtually nothing. Great move.

The things that have me confused are this:

- Damon has tonight off so who plays CF?
- What are we going to do with Adam Stern?
- Why call up Scott Cassidy?

I get the feeling that today is a busy day for the Red Sox front office. Should be interesting to see what comes out of this.

Both are unconfirmed but the Red Sox designated Payton for assignment which means they need to trade, release or send him to the minors in the next 10 days.
