Hopefully this stay atop the AL East lasts a little while.

We've got Hyzdu in right today with Graffanino stepping right in at 2nd. I really like that pickup. If it took Bellhorn's injury to get him out of the lineup, hopefully the play of Graffanino will keep him out.

Too bad about Embree, like I've said before, the thing that has made Boston sports so successful over the last several years is our ability to keep our personal feelings seperate from business moves in the front office. I will remember Embree the most for getting the final out against the Yanks in game 7 and coming in one day aginst I believe the Padres a couple of years back with the abses loaded and 0 outs and striking out the next three batters to get out of the jam.

Anyone know if they made it so only members can view the SoSH forum?

They're having problems with the forums. I signed up for a free viewer account and could get access, but I don't think it's required to have one.

Tonight will be a tough one. They may have gotten to a lefty yesterday, but Mark Buerhle ain't know Mark Hendrickson. The Sox need Clement to get it back together.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

Back to all the Burnett rumors, the Sox were working on a 3 way with the Twins involving Arroyo, Mueller and prospects. It would get them JC Romero and send Joe Mays to Florida, landing Lowell in Boston along with AJ. The Fish aren't in love with Mays, and we don't want Lowell all that much.

Personally, I feel heading into the last days of the deadline, Florida is going to realize that no one wants Mike Lowell's contract and just figure out who can give the most for AJ Burnett. That could very well be the O's, but the Sox are willing to take AJ without a contract extension according to the latest rumor. I have a feeling it could come down to the wire, and that could favor us. Just a thought to kill some time until someone makes a big trade and starts this thing up.

The latest I heard is that the 3-way trade could include Millar going to Minnesota as well. I'm not sure why they think Millar and Mueller will solve their offensive struggles but that's their problem.

I think the holdup in this is the Red Sox reluctance to take Lowell and that Florida wants Lohse, not Mays. However, it's been rumored that negotiations are now taking place on the ownership level between Henry and Loria, who have a good relationship.

If the Red Sox can get Burnett, Lowell and Romero for Millar, Mueller and Arroyo, I think that's a deal you have to make.
