    To Sell or Not to Sell?

    They Sox don't need to trade prospects for veteran pitchers....that's what they did from 2014-16, and sporadically from 2001-2012 and it has a 100% failure rate. 100%. The only time it arguably worked was the rent of Garcia for 1 year; but the rent wasn't the win..... signing him as a FA was the win. That's what the Sox need to do. And if you are going to do it, you certainly don't do it in July. Or trade prospects for pitching prospects (perhaps closer to the majors prospects). I'm not convinced trading guys like Bummer or Fry is really in order. Yes relievers are volatile, but that's mostly true with the older guys. These guys, esp Bummer, haven't reached their peak and we don't know what they have. Based on prior returns, it's not really worth it.

    Engel Recalled

    Tilson had an OPS under .600 and doesn't play compelling D. That's not close to 25 worthy on a bad team. If Engel could get his OPS to .700, that's a real win and makes him a 4th OF. If he can exceed .760, which would be a miracle (but he does have skills), that makes him a legit player.

    To Sell or Not to Sell?

    I think it will be trade or nothing and probably nothing. I don't think that they've ever planned on re-signing him and nothing I've seen from Abreu this season would warrant reconsideration of that. He hasn't hit much since the break. Is there some legit Boston rumor?

    Better hitter, better defender, more talent.

    Steve Stone with a dose of reality for Sox fans

    Whatever you have to tell yourself.

    Numerous playoff teams. Also a lot of future execs started under him. Et tu, Rick Hahn?

    So now they wheeled out Stone to make the excuses. Which rebuilder took 5 years, Stone? Certainly not Epstein, Luhnow, Beane, and the GMs of the Braves, Phillies, Brewers, Twins and Rays.

    Shake-up Needed in Coaching Staff, ASAP

    Well if a shakeup enhances the comfort and happiness of Williams, Hahn and Cooper, then it will happen. If it doesn't, it won't. Losing, playing poorly, etc. has very to do with these decisions.

    To Sell or Not to Sell?

    There is a good argument for trading all of these guys, but they can't come back with a bunch of Gillaspies and Medeiros' either.
  10. That's hard-nosed negotiating. Hahn put a lot of pressure on the As front office to keep from cracking up. I just want to cry. This is all self-inflicted.
  11. Minaya must have been DFAd 5 times and he never gets claimed.

    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    Not much. But the idea is to improve the team. A lose/lose is not a win.

    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    Did you know that the first trade Rick Hahn made as a Rebuild GM was for Charlie Tilson. He's just that good.

    That's one task in which Hahn excels: spinning out the excuses.

    He's about 5th in line of those who should be deposed.
