Well sox nation, this is my first post here so I hope yall aren't too hard on me! :smile: :D: So hows this for a trade:

Joe Crede(why do we have this clown- he simply can't hit sliders or curves away and every pitcher sets him up for this)
Jurrassic Carl(hes got pop and hes clutch, I think a lot of contenders would want him and we've got Big Franky for the dh spot anyhow)
Chad Hermanson(lets get rid of him NOW before it's too late. This is a career year for him -- you can't expect him to keep this up.

For

Oakland 3b Eric Chavez- This guys a monster bat that will get back on track once he gets down here on the southside. Huge improvement over Joe "I can't hit breakingball aways" Crede

RP: Kiko Calero: Hes still a solid reliever that can pick up Dustin's load and keep it goin'. Give him to ozzie and he will shine, pure and simple.



GO WHITE SOX!! YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD!

Hey dude, what's the score?
:welcome:
As to the trade?

No, not so much.

Chavez is too expensive, Carl is contributing right now (and if Thomas gets injured again it's a big problem if Krazy is gone) and Chad is the only proven closer on the ballclub. Kiko Calero is somewhat shaky, and has already been placed on the DL this season. I say stick with what we have, and only make a minor trade (bullpen relief or a starter depending on Duque's status) or just stand pat completely.

Man, I don't even know where to start... so I won't. :smile:

P.S. The "Chad" thing is a joke, right? We use :tealtutor: for those...

first off I hope your making fun of that guy with the mullet on sports center calling him chad hermanson, i would like to think you know his name is dustin, anyways I dont think we really need to get rid of any, hermy's doing great, him and aj have a great relationship, lets not mess with the bullpen, carl needs to stay because if frank gets hurt again, then what, and as for crede hes prolly the only one that should be traded, but remember hes a great 3rd basemen (not taking anything away from chavez, hes better then crede I know it) and so far hes been hitting well, past two gms I've seen him make real good adjustments on pitches and just lace them in the outfield, sorry I'm just not up for the trade

We can't keep Crede he will KILL US in the playoffs. SITUATION: RUNNERS ON THE CORNERS 2 OUTS BOT 9TH 2-1 CARDS(OR OTHER NL TEAM HERE) 0-2 COUNT STRIKE THREE CALLED BREAKING BALL OUTSIDE CORNER!


We need somebody who can HIT breakingballs playing 3b. Everybody else on this club is productive. I just put Dusty up there because I figured the A's would want some quality relief help. Maybe we can get chavez with some other package deal. Maybe Shingy?

Chavez the the sox has been covered ad nauseum on this site. So has Joe Crede's shortcomings. So have trade rumors for about 800 other Third Basemen.

You might want to go looking around old threads before posting what you thought about in the hot tub (why thinking of baseball in the hot tub anyway?)

Anyway, how about a moratorium on Third Base rumor threads until something actually happens?

Yes I agree, I think I've seen this thread 100 times before already.

1. Who the hell sits in a hot tub when the heat index is reaching the 100s? Getting your body core temperature up too high can cause brain damage.

2. "Sox nation?" Give me a break. Don't jump on all these "nation" bandwagons. We don't need to copy the fans of other teams.

3. Hermanson as a throw-in in a trade? I don't think so.

It's probably not a good idea to make your first post a trade suggestion.

I have a problem with the "nation" thing also, but welcome. Your next post needs to be one asking for advice or wait until Paulie goes 0 for 4 and start a thread about him being overrated and not needed here. Now, back to the tub and see if you can come up with something better.

The situation you just described is exactly why we have a guy like Carl Everett on the bench.

I was hearing on the Score that KW had made a pitch for Chavez and it was rejected. I don't know what the terms were but that's what they said. Anyway, they aren't giving him up for Crede. If you don't want him why would they.

GO WHITE SOX!! YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD!

You know, as far as fan trade proposals go, there are really three categories. The first, and most popular type, is the side where the Sox (or insert the persons favorite team) give up practically nothing for something great. These usually look like "Joe Borchard, Willie Harris and Luis Vizcaino for Brad Lidge." The second type is much less frequent and that's where the Sox give up way too much for someone who isn't really that good. This might look like, "Sox trade Brandon McCarthy and Joe Crede for Sean Burroughs." The last type is very rare. Thats the type where neither side of the trade exactly benefits from the trade. You've managed to hit that last type which is quite an accomplishment.

First off, you ripped into two of the players we are trading, yet you include them in a trade to get one of the best 3B in the game. Then you say that any contender would want Carl Everett. That might be true, but the A's are not a contender...unless you consider 9 games under .500 to be in contention. Second, while Chavez is clearly the best player in that deal, the sum of Everett, Crede and Hermanson is more valuable to this team right now than Chavez and Calero. If Kenny does somehow manage to land Chavez, it's going to be for prospects.

Did he tell us the hot tub part so that we would understand and he would not have to give us an excuse later on?

I do like his idea of dumping Chad Hermanson, that guy is a bum! Chad Hermanson has not helped us win a single game all year. Chad Hermanson has no hits this year and has not struck out anyone (I'm not even sure what position the bum plays!).

Now, Dustin Hermanson, he's a keeper!

Hottubs are only good for two things, getting chicks out of there clothes and relaxing. The chemicals and dehydration caused by them do not lead to level headed thinking, as shown by this thread.

Extended hottub use also lowers a man's sperm count. There's a reason why testicles--or in John Kruk's case, testicle--are located outside of the 98.6 degree body.
