I know, seriously...please, take them! They'll be gone by next year anyway, the fact that they could have value and yield that package is amazing.

Great news regarding the owners coming together.

Agreed. My only questions are 1. How much do they pay towards Lowell (who I think could be a pleasant surprise here in Boston) and 2. Who are the players included in the "and prospects" part of the deal as it was worded on ESPN Insider? As of now, this sounds like a STEAL in my book, and I've been hesitant to accept Lowell's contract.

I'll be anxious to see how this proceeds.

I have to agree.

Burnett's stuff is better than Arroyo's, and I feel Burnett might ned Tek to reach that ace potential that he has.(Think matt Clement)
Lowell is better than Mueller, IMO. He may not be having a better season, but in Fenway I'd expect him to get a lot more hits because of the Monster, plus he'd be playing in a lot better line-up than Floridas.
Getting Romero for Millar would be a blessing, as well.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I don't see Lowell as even close to as good as Mueller offensively.

Mueller 2005: .281/.382/.399
Lowell 2005: .230/.281/.351

Is the upgrade from Arroyo to Burnett and Bullpen Crap Pitcher X to Romero worth the downgrade from Mueller to Lowell? I have no idea.

When you factor in the financial opportunity cost of acquiring Lowell (stuck with him for 2 more years, no spot for Youkilis at 3B, crappy salary), there is no easy answer. Acquiring Romero would be appetizing, but I just don't see how renting Burnett for 2 months over Arroyo (and his cheapness) makes this a deal to make.

Another thing to consider: Mueller and Millar are some of the most well liked players in the club house, this is a known fact. Moving both of these guys in the middle of the season might be a questionable manuever from a chemistry standpoint. I don't truly have a problem with moving Millar, but moving Mueller would be tough to stomach, especially for a guy like Lowell..

I don't care what people say about it being to early to call. But the "Shut Schill Down For The Year" campaign is growing by the second in my head.

Blown save number 2, in three chances. Luckily it's only the 8th inning and we have time to pull it out. I don't understand why they sent Schilling in for thr 8th, kind of took me by surprise.

Good win for the Red Sox against a very tough pitcher. Buehrle's defense didn't help him out at all and the Sox took advantage. Schilling looked much better in his 2nd inning of work.
