What other FA 3rd basemen are there. I'm sick of numbskull Joe Crede, and I know a lot of others are as well. I would love to make a run at Adrian Beltre, but he would cost a bunch. Is Shea Hillenbrand a FA? He would be another great replacement. Thoughts...?

Wow... we so cannot afford Beltre

Troy Glaus is the best there is other than Rolen. He is a free agent.

It's not gonna happen. Crede's too highly regarded for many years in this organization. Another stinko year then we can talk replacements. Not that I agree with all that noise.

Corey Koskie... maybe if the Sox start signing enough Twins they'll actually win something.

Not that I like him, but...isn't Aramis Ramirez a free agent after this season?

Get rid of Konerko, convince KW Crede's a bust then we might have something. And we won't be any better. In fact we'll be worse defensively. Much worse.

Beltre reeks of a classic underachiever who has a breakout season in his contract year, and then flops after getting a ton of money. He is definitely high risk, to go with the potential high reward.

Why wouldn't you like him? The guy's a stud. I'd love to see a 3-4-5 of Thomas-Ramirez-Lee

Yeah, Sosa-Alou-Ramirez is good for about 4.2 runs a game. Thomas-Ordonez-Konerko-Lee has produced more than its fair share of crap over the years as well. Enough with that ****. We just need a bloody leadoff man.

Along those lines....we dangle Konerko to the Varitekless and Nomarless BoSox for Mientkivich+prospect....Use the cash to sign Radke and trade the prospect for Guardado...:D:

PK has been far too good to us to let him suffer like that.

I don't want to subject him to the homosexual orgies in the club house or that Klan-hooded fanbase in the first place.

(Sorry fenway!)

I'm pretty sure Minezcevichz is a free agent at the end of the year - I think that's why the Twins were looking to move him (well, that and the fact that Mourneau is a stud - gee, that must be nice to have a minor leaguer come in and contribute right away; do you hear me Joe Crede? Joe Borchard? Felix Diaz? Somebody? Anybody?).

But I wouldn't mind seeing him on the South Side. He's one of those guys you hate when he's on the other team but love when he's on your team.

Mientkiewicz has a 2 year deal, with a team option for a third (2006). He got his $10MM contract and promptly went in the crapper.

Glaus is half the player Rolen is, and is not even in the same ballpark at Beltre.

Plus, he's about as healthy as Griffey Jr.

Get rid of Konerko, sign Glaus, and have him switch on and off at 1b/DH with FT.

That's a pretty baseless analogy. He hasn't been injured 4 seasons in a row like Griffey.

Right - IIRC, he's just slumped from his "breakout" year a few back. Word is that he had LASIK surgery in the offseason and that before that he washaving ttrouble using contacts and that impacted his hitting. Believe it if you want to or not. But I don't think he's been that injury-prone.
