MLB thread: Trade deadline time

Recommended Posts

Cy Tavarez strikes again.

Lead's back up to double digits. Perhaps I'm being optimistic, but I'm starting to think the Yanks' hot streak has finally run its course and maybe now they'll settle down again.

Congratulations Top and War on the Sox's win last night. Tonight will break the series either way.

Well CUPCRAZY, this one isn't looking too good for the Braves. I think its safe to say that Coco and the RedSox offense have finally woken up. 3 homeruns in two innings, and 7-0 through 3 innings is a good way to wake up.

Umm...make that 4 homeruns.

On a not-so-good note:

I'm still in denial about last night's game. I went out with some friends for drinks after work. I came home, turned on the tube. Top of the third I see the score is 7 to 0 Sox. I said..."nah ESPN has made an error". I called a buddy and asked "What is the score". He says "It's on ESPN". I said "yea I know but they have the score all wrong, they have 7 to 0 on the screen and it is only the top of the third". He says "huh...that is the score". What a horrible game played by the Braves and a great game played by the Sox. I'm cutting my eye holes in my brown paper bag!

The only good thing that did happen last night that helped us was the Mets and Phillies lost too.

So, do you think Schilling going on the DL opens the door for Lester? He pitched last night but I don't know how he did.

It's gonna be Lester or Gabbard, here's Lester's line from last night taken from this article:

Yesterday in Indianapolis, he allowed three runs on five hits and four walks in five innings, while striking out three in a 6-3 PawSox loss to the Indians. Lester threw 92 pitches, including 54 for strikes, and didn

Apparently Josh Bard can't catch a knuckleball, but he can hit one.

Tonight sucked, but Beckett vs. Peavy tomorrow should be good.

Today was more like it as Beckett gets his 11th win. They've given themselves enough breathing room to have a stinker once in awhile. And I wouldn't really call it a stinker as much as running into some great pitching. I'm also very relieved that this game was not late tonight cause these west coast trips are exausting to keep up with.

Rumor which I somehow didn't hear of until just now: The Sox are in hot pursuit of Mark Buehrle

Thoughts I've had myself or read elsewhere:

- is Schilling more hurt than they're letting on?

- CWS is going for prospects, but who? I'd be loathe to see us give up Ellsbury or Buchholz

- might we be just driving up the price for the Yankees, namely trying to make them give up Hughes (not counting on that)

Buehrle is an FA to be, and the other half of the rumor is the Sox have a multi-year offer on the table waiting for him. That would mean we'd have Beckett, DiceK, and Buehrle all tied up long term, and when you figure in Lester, one of Wake or Schilling would have to be out after the season.

The curious part about it is that if you made a list of what the Sox needs are, the need for another SP would probably get ranked just above the need for another DH. While its certainly true that you can never have enough pitching, the fact that the Sox have seemingly come out of nowhere in this would appear to lend credence to their having some impetus, namely Schilling's injury.

I've read the Braves are also in on the Buehrle hunt, the rumor being that they're dangling Saltalamacchia.

Looks to me like our biggest need right now is another SS. Lugo doesn't show signs of coming out of whatever slump he's in and Alex Cora, although I love the guy, won't be able to carry this team the rest of the season and into the playoffs. I read that Pedroia was actually a SS for most of his career till coming to the Red Sox(at least I think it was him). I'd hate to move him now though since he's really carved himself a place at second base.

But if your instinct is right about Schilling, Buerle would slide in quite nicely and still has quite a few years to play. This would make our rotation lethal for a few more years...... now, what to do about Timlin?

We do seem to be on a bad streak when it comes to acquiring SSs. At least with AGon you weren't expecting him to hit, but Lugo wasn't brought here to hit at the Mendoza line.

LOL, but at least you could count on AGon's defensive skills, even that's been in question with Lugo at times.
