Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

Can someone explain to me why Manny went into the Green Monster during the mound visit?


As great of a hitter as he is... he just seems to be one of the dumbest players in the MLB. Plus him and Soriano need to learn to run out of the box on a consitent basis.

Actually Manny runs harder to first base on a regular basis then Ortiz. Pay Attention to Ortiz when he hits a groundball right at a fielder and he barely even gets out of the box.

Basically I said the same exact thing as your first sentence, word for word. That deal would be okay, I heard Wise is a damn good setup man. Can't say I know too much about the brewers though, so I can't comment on Overbay or Davis.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

So I'm willing to conceed AJ Burnett to the O's, but why in the world would the Pirates jump in and help Baltimore when they're getting Mike Lowell in exchange for Mark Redman and Daryle Ward? Apparently Florida figured out no one wants Lowell so they'll be paying much of his contract....but still.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I'm not ready to go into panic mode yet. We're playing some bad baseball right now, but ironically the bullpen has been one of our strong points since the break.

The latest rumor I've heard is Bill Mueller to Minnesota for JC Romero. I'm on the fence about that one. I think they have some realistic options in Papelbon and Delcarmen that could help the bullpen. I'm not sure why we're still carrying 12 pitchers, but if you're going to carry 12 wouldn't it make sense to give one of them a look?

I don't think this team needs a major shakeup, but there are some holes. Obviously they need more production out of the right side of the infield. They need to be able to replace Schilling when he returns to the rotation, but otherwise what else can you do? It's too bad Pedroia is hurting right now because I think he would've gotten a serious look with Bellhorn on the DL.

I agree with that sentiment, and it confuses me also why we don't look inward a little more when it comes to helping the pen. Unless we can make a run on Billy Wagner, my idea of improving the team does not include dropping a top prospect on Danys Baez or someone of the like to plug a hole.

I think our recent play and the nature of losing an arm like AJ to an AL East contender has this town yelling at Theo to act and I'm not with that. The fact that we actually have prospects that teams want is a minor miracle. We lost Pedro and Lowe to FA and our closer and ace this year. We're about a year away from doing what the Braves did this season when their roster was a mess. But there system was stocked, and guys like Kyle Davies and Kelly Johnson are a little closer than Papelbon and Hanley for instance.

Let's sign Craig Hansen, make a good deal or two for an arm at a reasonable price, grab an infielder and maybe a Millar upgrade if it comes packaged with another need, and be happy this team is built to win for years to come.
