I really wanted a Konerko for either Weaver or Perez deal to happen. Guys are getting snatched up off the market and we're going nowhere again.

That Bautista move would have been really solid. I think he is a good 4-5 pitcher that can be used as long relief in a pinch. We could have really used him.

Unfortunately the Sox weren't willing to move off their demand of only two years, somebody else (in this case Toronto) said 'yes,' and the Sox got screwed (again...)

Like I said it only takes one other team to say yes and all the Sox best laid fiscal plans are screwed, they don't get the player and they they wonder why their fans are pissed off all the time.

By the way has anybody noticed the Jays have already acquired FOUR pitchers this off season. They don't seem to be having a hard time getting pitching help, I wonder why that is?

Dont despair about getting LAs pitchers... The Braves are also in the market for Drew

Lee Sinins (stathead whose mailing list I am on) says the Twins are not averse to trading Guzman or Mientkewicz. Are they gonna have anyone left?
