If that's a trend, that teams are willing to part with that level of talent, we should get in that game now. Our pitching will keep us stable while retooling.

I know this is deep pink pipe dream but I wish our offseason went as such:
-Trade Alexei, Floyd and Tank to Arizona for Upton
-Sign Stephen Drew
-Trade Thornton, Rios and Crain for pure salary relief
-Sign Hamilton yes even it meant 5 or 6 years at 24-25 million per

I expect we'll see some wild deal before February. There is no point in us going into 2012 status quo.

Man, Upton just defines overrated and Drew is terrible.

Whichever team gives Hamilton those years and dollars will live to regret it.

We already have Connor Jackson. Brandon Wood is available. Who else can we get from the top prospect list from 5 years ago?

Hahn has the coveted 2007 Minor League System of the Year award in his sights.

I'm not sure Rios has Choo's value, considering Choo makes less than half Rios' salary and puts up comparable numbers with the exception that Choo is good for 70-80 walks a season while Rios walks less than Viciedo. Add Thornton to the mix you are talking about unloading 18 million dollars a year.

Look at season by season OPS comparisons, starting at 2008:
Choo: .946, .883, .885, .733, .815
Rios: .798, .691, .791, .613, .850

Choo's .733 came in a season he spent twelve weeks on multiple trips to DL. No way Rios would get near the return Choo would command.

I wonder if the sox could pry Trumbo from the angels now that LAA has signed Hamilton and probably need another starter. Floyd and Beckham do it? I know that Trumbo is not great defensively but I think it's worth the trade off It may take more to make the Angels happy...
Put Trumbo at 3b and Kepp at 2b until / if Sanchez is ready

Jackson was a minor league FA and is with the Orioles now.

Agree

I for one would like to see the Sox go after a package of Peter Bourjos and Hank Conger for Floyd and Thornton.

I would just loooove this deal! Then maybe we could use DeAza to bolster the bullpen a little bit...

Can those guys hit?
DeAza for a bullpen pitcher would be seriously underselling him.

I would rather see the Sox flip Floyd + Thornton for Mark Trumbo and trade Dayan for some pitching.
