Well they should be happy about this for the simple fact that they don't have to face Vlad anymore.

And now the Jermaine Dye/Jim Thome situation gets really interesting.

Yes, he was a one-man wrecking crew against the Rangers.

Here's a radical thought: How about doing the rumored three-way deal where Paulie goes to LAA and Adrian Gonzalez comes here, and then signing Dye to share RF and DH duties with Quentin?

Pierre, Beckham, Gonzalez, TCQ, Dye, AJ, Rios, Teahen, Alexei is a formidable lineup.

You talk like that three-way deal made sense from the Angel's standpoint. It didn't and it still doesn't. It won't happen.

The Padres will want tons for Adrian. The White Sox likely don't have the quality of prospects San Diego is seeking. Boston could and would trump anything the Sox could put together.

Not disagreeing with you, but Boston has absolutely no room for him.

They would find a way to make room. They were willing to eat 9 million of Lowell's 11 million contract in the failed trade to Texas. They probably still will once he's proved he can play during spring training. Dumping Ortiz wouldn't be out of the question if they go after Adrian.

I really hate the Red Sox.

I'm happy that we didn't sign Vlad just for the knowledge that we won't have to hear more bitching about how slow we are on the basepaths. People would be clamoring for JD and Thome after watching Vlad hobble his way to second on a ball in the gap.

How about JD just DH's here at a nice, cheap discount.

Dye has already said he doesn't want to DH. He wants to play the field.

Deep pink, I'm just hoping for it.

It would be a great option, only if we can sign him to a first-81-games contract.

I think this signing makes it more obvious that the Sox aren't signing another DH - for sure not a RH one.

He might not have much of a choice before too long.

I've always wanted to ask you this; has Konerko killed your dog or something? It seems like you have a vendetta against him for some reason.

Every single trade possibility from you has Konerko in it. We get it, you don't like him.

Jeez; a radical thought? :redneck

I almost can't wait until Paulie retires so you can find a new target already. What is it about him that bothers you so much?

I thought it might be, I just had to find out.

Enjoy!
