I have been a Sox fun for over 20 years now and I have to admit I don't understand the trade we just made with Pirates. Granted, Kip has taken awhile to get where he is now but I don't see how Ritchie is going to be any better. Plus, give them the other two guys as well just blows me away!

Kip for Ritchie is more like it and even then it doesn't excite me. I don't think the Sox have a chance at Giles now. From the reports I read the one player that the Pirates wanted from the Sox was Wells. Now that they have him, why would they trade now?

In all Honesty, Giles would be great but I don't think we really need another bat in the lineup. It wouldn't hurt but starting pitching is a must, but only if it improves the rotation. I don't think this trade did.

Welcome abroad! Play your cards right and you will be a regular in no time, though I think Ritchie might surprise you this year, but I think Kip will surprise KW as well

:KW
You mean players can get better once they are in the majors? Wow, when I came up I was mediocre and I did my best to stay that way


Cheers and Welcome Aboard :gulp:

Welcome to WSI TheGipper!

Personally I like the move. We have a lot of young pitchers, and Kip simply wore out his chances to prove himself. However, I will miss having Lowe but KW clearly didn't like him.

I would like to have Giles, but I don't think we have to have him. I still think our offense will be good with or without Giles. I would almost rather have Erstad who is a good leadoff hitter. We have enough guys to drive in runs. What we need is a guy who can get on for our other guys. But that said, Im glad the trade didn't go through because I definately think we were giving up too much.

Welcome to WSI, Gipper :cool:

Good point but I guess they are trying to win now and they thought this trade helped that.

We do have alot of bats and I wouldn't mind Giles but like you said it would be nice to shore up the rotation a little more.

I found it funny. Atleast you beat West, Sox00.

Giles doesn't want to come here so don't blame Williams for not getting him.

I love the software but your making to many minor changes for my liking. But it's your board so you can do whatever you like. :smile:

I thought we agreed that you wouldn't let your job get in the way of your board work. :D:

I think cause the players we gave away are Sox players that we think we gave tomuch. While 'Burg probaby thinks we gave to little. But you're right, we gave 1 pitcher to much.
And like Jer said, Giles doesn't want to come here.
