    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    Flip a coin your guess is as good as anyone elses.

    Ok I guess my definition of a stop gap is the same as a place holder. It's all the same in my eyes. Just splitting hairs i suppose.

    Delmonico will be joining the cast of AAA depending on how many options he has left. He might be a worse OF than Palka.

    You never thought the Sox had much of a chance for Machado or Harper anyway so you thinking "it is looking more like they don't" fits your previous narrative. I won't pretend that I also thought there wasn't much of a chance previously but it's no sin to now think otherwise. I think there's a decent chance to get one of them.. I thought tht way before the Alonso trade and that trade doesn't change my opinion one way or another except to think it's just another move to accomplish that.

    If he did you know that it isn't true. What is Nova but a stop gap ? McCann? Castillo ? Hell half the roster are stop gaps in that thy will be gone as soon as they can be replaced by better players Some stop gaps are just longer term stop gaps like Engel or whoever plays 3rd base.

    Some mountains are just too high some rivers just too wide. It's the body of work that gets you fired. This would just be the cherry on top of that body and it's still doubtful he'd get fired. We are not in the business of hiring and firing baseball executives so it's easy to be harsh or forgiving. In the end it doesn't really matter. I like that i could loosely use the Supremes and Linkin Park all in one post

    If your take is that Hahn and company will prove once and for all they suck at their jobs if no whales come here you are right. But many of us thought that way before this. The best we can do is hope they get it done. I think you're really just preaching to the choir for the most part.

    We also have to remember Manny seems to be very family oriented. Hahn knows this. That's why we saw the Hahn quotes about family the other day. Machado chose to play for the DR in the WBC instead of team USA because his parents are both from the DR. We may question Machado's actions on the diamond as dirty or non hustling. However he does have family values and wants to play every game ,both valuable qualities , one as a man and the other as a baseball player. Anyone who thinks he is a dirtbag would be wrong.

    a man's reach should exceed his grasp Words from a poem by Robert Browning, suggesting that, to achieve anything worthwhile, a person should attempt even those things that may turn out to be impossible.

    Harper part 3

    Didn't Boras say some teams did have some very graphic pictures ?
  11. CaliSoxFanViaSWside

    Harper + Machado?

    I think you might be the single most disappointed person on the board if the Sox sign neither.

    I'm not knocking the acquisition of Alonso at all. Far from it. I like the move. Just saying That I don't care one way or another if people make fun of the Sox.Right now we are irrelevant until we can sign one of the whales. If that doesn't happen the scorn from not dong that will far outweigh the jokes about Alonso being acquired.

    Being irrelevant is probably worse. At least they have to know you exist to make fun of you.
