Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Ortiz gets us a much needed win today and hopefully Schilling can win us the series tommorow.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Olney just reported on Sportscenter that the Sox are now interested in Bobby Abreu and it looks like Abreu will get dealt to someone by Monday. I tend to think that the Sox are only getting into the mix because the Yankees are trying to get him as well. He just comes way too expensive as whoever gets him will likely have to pay for his 16 million dollar option next season. Abreu isn't a bad player, but he also isn't worth 16 million plus prospects.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Now he's saying we're trying to work out a major multi-team deal, potentially with SD involved...

Personally, I like the idea of making some key players like Loretta available...may not be a bad idea to sell high while Pedroia can come in and probably play pretty good at second. I think we look pretty good as a team, but the truth is, we're going to look different next year so we may as well entertain some deals.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I don't mind it either, though I am reluctant to part with Lowell (unless its for an obvious upgrade like Cabrera, but I consider that highly unlikely) just because his defense has been so good and thats the one thing we've been able to count on all year with the Red Sox. The pitching sometimes goes into a slump, as does the hitting, but the defense is always good. I think Nixon or Coco could step into that number 2 spot in the lineup with relative ease. And while Loretta's glove has been solid, its not really spectacular and I think he's replaceable with someone like Pedroia but I'm not for trading Loretta for the sake of trading Loretta. The team seems to enjoy playing together and Loretta seems to be a well-liked guy in the clubhouse and there is no reason to break up the chemistry in favor of some low to mid level prospect or middle reliever, which is likely all that Loretta would bring in.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Lackey pitches for Anaheim tonight and in his career he has never beat the Red Sox. Manny owns him and several other guys have good numbers against him. Still, Lackey is very quietly having a Cy Young calibre season. The wins aren't there but batters are barely hitting over .200 against him. Of course, he'll be opposed by Curt Schilling.

Thank you, Kendrick. Maybe the Sox can answer now.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

May I just say...

Orel Hershiser is 25 X better than Joe Morgan. Already, through a half inning, he has provided more insight than Joe has all year and failed to contradict himself. Please, please, please ESPN...Orel equals ratings!!
