I'd like to see a trade for 3B as long as we don't get taken by a team in terms of the prospects/players we'd give up.

of course, that's more of a general rule of trading: don't get hosed.

Chavez. We're one big bat away from a consistent, explosive lineup that can go deep into the playoffs.

They are a combined 10-5. Contreras has had one bad outing, and prior to the Diamondbacks game had the best ERA on the staff. El Duque also had one bad outting.

Wow, we've still got some people that think Tony Graffanino can help the team. Apparently, these people have never seen him field, or attempt to do so.

hey dude where is Joe Randa.

GoSoxGo!
06-17-2005, 02:27 PM
Ok lets see with El duque he has a high 4 era and has had 3 bad starts in a row and if it wasent for the runs he gets in each game then he would be less than .500 pitcher Contreras has done o.k I guess but we could use some insurance.



But keep in mind this is just my opinion I would like to hear yours thats why I made this thread.

1 more bad start and im ready to give up on el duque.

5/16 - 2.2 IP, 7 H, 6 ER, 4 BB
6/03 - 6 IP, 6 H, 4 ER
6/08 - 6 IP, 7 H, 4 ER
6/14 - 4.2 IP, 8 H, 6 ER

What's scary is, he's 2W-1L-1ND in those 3 starts. Ehhh...

good idea about Randa how much is he making. I just don't think Crede is the answer. Also what about Leo Dagle down in single A man he is killing the ball he could be a answer in a few years.

To replace a starter, I'd call up Brandon McCarthy before trading for someone.

That was one of the most random comments I have ever seen.

Is that you, Leo?

Do you think hes ready though I think that he needs a few more starts (like 5) to keep the ball in the yard but at the same time we are in the middle of a division race.

GoSoxGo!
06-17-2005, 02:31 PM
Ya I know..... but he could be a huge replacement in the future. he plays 1st and 3rd and can Dh.

No one, leave this team's chemistry as it is.

Why does everyone seem to think that adding a player to this team will suddenly screw up the team chemistry and cause us to start losing? I highly doubt that replacing Joe Crede or adding another guy to the bullpen is going to suddenly destroy the chemistry.

I would love to see an upgrade for 3B and Chavez seems to be heating up. He's expensive, but would put this offense over the top so we can slug it out with teams on those nights when the pitching fails. I would also like to see Everett traded for a pitcher. As much as I love Carl I hate seeing him sit on the bench. Wait until the deadline in case Frank gets hurt then trade Carl for maybe a closer or set-up guy to strengthen this bullpen.

Duque will be more than serviceable as a 5th starter to get us to the playoffs. We don't need another starter, and in the case that we did we have one. His name is Brandon McCarthy. In the playoffs you only need 4 starters, so we'll be able to put El Duque in the pen. That leaves us with Buehrle, Garland, Garcia, and Contreras. Name one AL team that can go toe to toe with those 4 front to back. There is no one.

The only player possibly worth giving something up for is Chavez. He is great with a bat and still really good with his glove. The addition of him would be much like the Cardinals of 2004 adding Larry Walker to their squad.

McCarthy needs how to pitch to AAA hitters before he can pitch to major league hitters.

we need to get to the playoffs before we worry about being there because incase you havent noticed Minnesota and Even cleveland are with in a two week period of screwing up to being in the lead of the division and minnesota is never out you should have learned that by now.

very good point, he has to learn to keep the ball down first.

The twins and sox both have playoffs written all over them this year. IMO they could be the two best teams in baseball this year.

Cleveland will not be taking anything until they clean up that disaster of a bullpen.

Other than the closer sport Clevelands bullpen has been awesome, check the stats. I think they have one of the best bullpen ERA's in the majors. The only reason the Indians are not right up there with us is the hitting which has been horrible.

Right, he should be a Sept. callup in 2007 . . . when he'll be 28 years old.
