Nice smarmy quote from Boras about Dayan's future earnings...

Interesting. If either of these goes through, we'd better get quality assets back.
Sox are loaded with quality OF on the roster, especially CF.

Who else on the roster can play CF? Am I missing somebody and if the answer is Wise then we are in trouble

The plan is for the opening day starting CF to be Curtis Granderson.

We're both missing it.
I really don't understand the De Aza objections. He was excellent.
Maybe they think they can sell at peak price, but I'll believe that when I see it.

For what it's worth, heard from a good source today and they think the Sox will be making two "impact" moves in this off season.

The source (who is well connected) said they thought the Sox would be getting a left handed bat for the lineup and that DeAza is probably the person who is going to be sent out. They think it will eventually be to the Reds for some of their good, young prospects.

Didn't say anything one way or another on A.J.

Granderson's defense has really been slipping. He's scheduled to move to LF for the Yankees in 2013.

He may been referring to Jared Mitchell and Jordan Danks.

I hope not. Both are even worse options than Wise. Hopefully, Mitchell will help the Sox one day. I don't think that time is now.

I think Hahn is up to something and now that the bigger name FA's are starting to sign we will see it soon.

Unless the Sox get a strong return for De Aza, I wouldn't trade him. He is lefty. I thought he did a decent job in CF last year and he is our lead off hitter. If we trade him, who bats lead off?

I hope not. I don't want to add 195 Ks to this lineup. His numbers last year were Dunn-esque.

I have a hard time believeing the Reds -- or any team -- being willing to deal good prospects for De Aza.

Shipping De Aza and Tank, possibly? For who? I don't really like the prospect of getting rid of De Aza.

Maybe not, the Reds might be trying to win now, with their lineup and pitching staff the way they are, they might be one guy away. Left and center field are their biggest problems right now. De Aza would be a nice fit for them and would add another lefty bat. He's also strong defensively so he can play either left or center.
Edit: Paulie may retire after 2013, and the Reds have Neftali Soto being blocked by Joey Votto. He's got plenty of power and doesn't strike out that much, so he could work.

I like the OB% as a big factor in value, however. A guy who has a low OB% because he gives him self up for a run now and then or tries to bunt his way on I'm for..

Giving up an out for a run is fine, out for 1 base not sure about......

Sox need to get on base.....and stop K'in so much.

I think our pitching is fine, but when it was an issue was walks.
