Man we are half way thru Aug and there has been no waiver rumors for the Sox? I just got back from vaca and I thought I would see at least one bad rumor!

There are no players that would become available that would improve the Sox, unless Texas waives Gary Matthews Jr...

The AL race is too tight right now for players to slip through. The problem is even if Boston wouldn't claim anyone, the AL West teams may to stop another one of the teams in that division from getting someone.

Nope, it's Ken Hill.

Too bad we didnt pick up Brady Clark at the deadline. He could provide a right handed platoon partner for Pods, and give Anderson a rest instead of sticking a corner OF in the hole. He is hitting .282, and has an OBP of .380. He has a much better arm than Pods and plays better D.

Currently Pods is hitting near 200 after the allstar break, and Ozuna is hitting around .080. Brady is hitting well over 300 since the ASB.

To play left and lead off? Sure!

I bet we could get woods and prior for cheap. They are the saviours you know.

The rumor is that no one that isn't a seamhead understands the waiver process. Sadly, I understand it.:angry:

Shawn Green possibly going to the Mets seems to be floating around, but I can't see Arizona giving Green up when they're this close in a division race.

a few more waiver rumors today... LaTroy Hawkins and Scott Scheoneweis both possibly going to the Red Saux...


So it was that the Red Sox front office was busy at work yesterday, desperate for bullpen reinforcements.

LaTroy Hawkins, who cleared waivers last Friday, remains very much available.

Another intriguing name is Toronto lefty Scott Schoeneweis, who cleared waivers yesterday.

Lots of inner-division movement this season. How Scott Schoeneweis' name is "intriguing" is beyond me. LaTroy Hawkins is "eh... we couldn't do better" but, Scott Schoeneweis?? C'mon.

This part is interesting "According to sources, the White Sox offered Sean Tracey, only to be rebuffed by the Orioles." in regards to Hawkins.. Perhaps Ozzie still isn't happy with the kid?

Yeah I actually just looked it up. I knew he had cleared and I didn't know what they did from him, stick him in AAA or just outright release him. Hes a FA. Get on that Kenny!
