View Full Version : Sox should get Looper, Baez

Brad Looper was non-tendered by the Marlins. Baez was non-tendered by the Indians. Looking at the state of the Sox bullpen right now, I recommend the Sox sign one or both of these guys.

Of course if the A-Rod, Ramirez, Ordonez, Garciaparra trades happen between the 4 teams the Sox can have a bullpen of Marte, Williamson, Mota, Baez, Looper, an Wunsch as well as having Perez as a starter.

Can any of those guys serve as long relievers?

I think Danny Wrong will be in the BP to start '04 as long reliever.

I'd give Braden Looper a shot. Baez just plain sucks.

you guys really dont want Braden, unless you enjoy someone with no spine pitching in the late innings.

The Marlins chose Armando Benitez over Looper basically, so I can't trust Looper based on that fact. As for Baez, I thought he wasn't very good at all, and I think the Sox will be smart enough to not sign him considering we see Cleveland 18 or 19 times a year.

another issue with Braden is someone has convinced him that he deserves $4 million. :?:
