Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Here's my take on where the Red Sox pitching staff stands for 2007

Returning
Schilling
Beckett
Delcarmen
Hansen
Lester
Papelbon
Corey
Tavarez
Van Buren
Snyder
Dinardo

Decision Time
-Wakefield (can renew his contract at $4m which I think they will)
-Clement? (I think theyll do everything possible to get rid of him)
-Foulke (has a $1.5m buyout which I think the Red Sox will take. He can then exercise a $2.75m player option for a total of $4.25m vs his $7.5m option)
-Mike Timlin (time to retire)
-David Wells (time to retire)

Needs
Definitely need a starting pitcher, if not two. They also need some more reliable relievers. I think Snyder could do well as a mop up/long man. Ideally, they'd sign a closer so Papelbon could start. I know people like what he's done as closer but he's more valuable as a starter.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

And their lineup:

Returning
Crisp
Lowell
Ortiz
Wily Mo
Ramirez
Varitek
Youkilis
Pedroia
Hinske
Carlos Pena?

Decision Time
Cora (I think they should try to bring him back for cheap)
Loretta ( I think they should bring back either Loretta or Gonzalez but not both)
Gonzalez (see above)
Lopez/Mirabelli
Nixon (hate to see him go but there isn't much room in the OF and Pena should be playing full time)
Kapler

Needs
- Legit 4th OF
- SS or 2B
- Better backup C
- Another LH bat

Your forgetting that if we keep Wakefield then we need to keep Mirabelli because no other catcher seems to be able o catch Wake. Which sucks, alot.

That's BS in my opinion. Bard would have been fine if the Red Sox didn't panic. The thing that really screwed them up was Flaherty's retirement, since he worked with Wake the most in the first half of spring training.

Mirabelli is a liability at the plate these days. We need a guy who can step in for Tek if he gets hurt and give him more time off if he needs it.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Rumor Central on ESPN.com says Dodgers, St.Louis, and Padres are all interested in Wells.

It says we asked for Matt Kemp from the Dodgers like you guys already said. And I think it's just a matter of time before we trade Wells for someone.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Nick Swisher is Curt Schilling's 3000 carear strike out.

Congratulations to him, I wish it could have been in Fenway though.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

How in the world did this team take 2 out of 3 from Anaheim?
