    1. No idea. 2. Prepare him to start; big waste of resources to do otherwise.

    Offseason Targets

    Because Marquez is a good pitcher in the prime of his career on a reasonable contract; they aren't squandering that to save Blackmon money. They can trade Marquez for, judging by what people hereon are willing to pay, high value. Then they salary dump Blackmon separately and pay 1/2 his contract or so; some team ... ahem .... ahem ....would probably give them a decent prospect...
  4. Thanks for the analysis. If they are going to add some relievers, then they could go ahead and dump Cordero right now. And they should have moved one of those catchers in a trade before now. I'd like to see them keep those 2 pitchers that need protecting. Now that I think about it, it's less risky to leave a player off now and risk rule 5 than it is to add them to the 40 to protect against Rule 5, but then take them off later (where they would be on open waivers and not have to go onto the claiming team's 40 man). So there's no point in loading guys onto the 40 if you know you'll have to remove them later.................................................

    It wouldn't.

    The Sox have a defensive outfielder - one who actually hit last year.

    Offseason Targets

    Bummer is an elite set-up man. You don't need that kind of talent to pitch 1 clean inning. A closer just needs to be a good pitcher, with stones (Colome e.g.). Not sure of the fascination with Marquez; yes he's a good pitcher. I sense some wishcasting that he'll suddenly be elite once he leaves Colorado and the price appears to be set at that level. Doubtful. For a pitcher trade, I'd look at Musgrove. He has AL experience, he's been solid with Pittsburgh and his price would be very reasonable. Well it should be and if it isn't, then move on.

    What we may be on the cusp of is having a playoff team for the next 5+ years. Don't mess that up by going "all in" especially for career years, convincing oneself that slightly above average players are somehow elite, etc.

    Can Hahn Make Moves Without TLR Approval?

    Probably not. But has he ever been able to make moves without approval? I'm more worried about Hahn forced to make moves on the orders of LaRussa.

    German Marquez: Trade Target

    Trying to win and not overpay. Heck Kopech was the #2 for Sale; Kopech plus "good pieces" would approximate 75% of Sale's value (considering it was Sale, Kopech and not much else). Marquez isn't in Sale's area code.

    German Marquez: Trade Target

    You give Kopech and the like for a TOR pitcher, not Marquez.

    Speculation on TLR coaches

    In a front office; and after a couple of years, he may get another shot at GM. Just too many glitches in his resume, if you look under the covers. But, we'll see. If someone wants him as GM, I think he'll be gone.

    Speculation on TLR coaches

    They neutered him in the manager search, so I guess they demoted him de facto. I doubt any team would hire Hahn as their top guy: 1 organization experience, lackluster drafting and way too many unforced errors of the years.

    Speculation on TLR coaches

    If the Sox feel that way, then JR and Williams should fire him and bring in someone they trust.
