Trade Deadline: Sox Make No Moves

Recommended Posts

Mired in front office incompetence. Why is David Robertson still on the roster?? Why are Miguel Gonzalez, James Shields, Melky, etc. still on the roster??

This is true. Don't get be angry about Sale and Q, because it's possible Sox didn't get fair value for those players and properly held out. But all indications suggest they could have moved the guys you mentioned and gotten something of value for them and/or obtained payroll flexibility at the same time. Seriously, we could have unloaded Shields... Plugged Fulmer into the rotation next year and had roughly $25 million of payroll off the books for next year (Danks + Shields), which could be used to sign some positional talent.

Should have sold a lot of the bullpen and at least one position player. The season is lost anyway. If you're gonna lose games, might as well lose a lot of them.

They really wanted to drive a stake into the heart of any good will they built up with the hot start.

 

 

This is becoming tradition. Disappointment after disappointment with this organization.

Because ALL of those players are still under contract for next year.

Fulmer is far from being a simple plug in.

 

I hope there is plan here and it may have been JR neutering the front office with a change on the way from KW all the way down.

 

Money should not be an issue with them going into the off season.

 

At this time catching, bullpen and outfield depth are the major needs.

 

Their rotation 1 through 5 is set.

 

Need to sign two real bats.

I look forward to another year of a 3-5th place .500 team!

Rick Hahn was sitting by the phone all day long just waiting for the calls that never came. Unfortunately, it wasn't until 2:59 that he noticed the phone was off the hook, but by that point it was already too late.

I have to take a step back from this team for a while. I want to understand what the hell they are doing and what may be their plan but right now it sure appears to be a s*** show.

Everything was merged.

 

Can we get disappointment in big bold letters somewhere in the title?
