I say trade him for whatever you can get. They should be looking to trade anyone who isn't in your plans for next year.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Nice of Beckett to learn to pitch at such an important time in the season.

Big kudos.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

That may have been the most all out extension on a diving catch I can ever remember.... my goodness Coco.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Beckett has only allowed 2 runs through six innings. I haven't really been paying close attention to the game, but it looks like he's been lucky to put up this good line. I suppose I judged without knowing all the facts.

46 strikes
34 balls

2 walks and 2 Ks.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Time to start dragging some positives out of these losses I suppose. That catch from Coco at least rivaled his Leap of Faith, and Beckett mixed his pitches semi-well for once and has looked sharper recently. He needs to carry it into next year.

I heard this morning on ESPN Radio that Theo is trying to shop Boomer to the Dodgers for Matt Kemp

I definitely wouldn't turn him down but do we really need another outfielder?

Manny
Crisp
Pena
Hinske
Kapler?

I suppose he could be used as trade bait, or put in center if Theo and company would like to ship Coco out. Although I don't think it'd be good a look for the team in the eye of (potential) FA's if they send another new acquisition packing because of one poor year.

I seriously doubt Kapler is in their plans for next year. He just isn't a good player. Also, Hinske is versatile enough that you could keep him as a 5th OF/1B/3B, and a LH bat off the bench.

That's true, but I'd think going for a pitcher would be a much more sensible thing to do.

But since it's past the deadline I suppose it's just best player avail. mode now.
