First, before we get into the executive news, some good news for the most loyal player in baseball:
Knuckleballer to be fully recovered long before Spring Training
Silence the doubters, Timmeh, silence'em. Here's hoping Wake outperforms his option yet again next year.
Congrats to Mr. Hoyer - he didn't get the Nationals job earlier this year, but I'd think he's probably going to have a better time in California with one of the biggest trade chips in baseball.
Unless he really develops into a pitcher, Chapman's going to be a risk, considering his less than perfect mechanics, the cost, and the extreme rawness of his ability. Being a lefty that can throw 100 miles per hour is great, but it helps if you can actually pitch with it - not sure I want the Sox to get involved in a such an expensive project, especially with the amount of resources invested in other projects.
Any options that should be declined? Aside from Wake, NG.
Okay, so the Beckett-Lowell/Hanley deal is one of the biggest, based on it's absence from this list. Any other obvious ones?
This is going to be a daily thing, isn't it? How about we come up with a definitive strategy, make a nice flowchart, and then follow it like a cult whenever a new user starts suggesting we bring back Damon or something?
Is there anything Fenway CAN'T do? Seriously, I think I'd attend a showing of paint drying in Fenway.
Comments, links, declarations of alliance with the Phightin' Phils, you know the drill.
