We got Kapler back. Don't know if it's been mentioned...but we signed Kapler, and put him on the 15 day DL.

I did, link at the top of the page...lost in all of our attempts to evaluate the validity of these crazy trades.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

If you guys get Burnett... did he say we would work out a long term deal there or is it just going to be a 4 month rental?

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I'm inclined to believe Burnett will go to whomever accepts the albtatross Lowell. He is producing absolute bupkes, and getting paid a huge amount ($8M for the next 2 years).

That said, I don't see any way Theo accepts some of these proposed deals involving Lowell. One of the main tenets of the Epstein Era has been not to absorb poor contracts just because we're the Red Sox and we can. He would argue that this is the quickest way to hamstring the franchise into fiscal inflexibility.

Getting Lowell would go against everything Theo has done thus far. I don't see either the O's or anybody else taking on Lowell, meaning, this will drag out for a while longer until Florida accepts a lesser offer. I'd bet he goes to the Orioles.

I also think the dark horse in all of these rumors are the Toronto Blue Jays. You have to remember that their ownership approved a bump in payroll, so they're sitting on an unused wad of cash. IMO, they can easily afford to re-sign Burnett. I'm not sure about their prospect situation, but I think they'd be willing to move some good prospies in order to get a pitcher of Burnett's calibre along with some ML talent such as Cattalanotto, Hudson, etc.

I think any deal for Burnett will be contigent upon them signing him long term. Selig will usually grant a 72 hour window to get a deal done, if not the trade doesn't go through.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

You'll have to make a package that includes a left-handed batting outfielder, along with an ML read starter and a prospect. That's what the Marlins are asking for from the Jays and I'm starting to think that it's way too much for a guy who isn't the 3rd best pitcher on his team. I'd rather we go for Kip Wells and I could see Boston going the Kip Wells route as well.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I don't see why the Jays don't just offer Cattalanotto, Chacin, + one of their better prospects.
That seems a little bit steep for somebody like Burnett with his injury history, but he's a strikeout pitcher. You pay a pretty penny for starters who throw gas.

Halladay + A.J. Burnett would be extremely formidable. Kip Wells is feces and is not a clear upgrade whatsoever.
